We are recruiting for a PR Account Manager to join our dynamic and friendly PR and content marketing agency team.

Based full-time at our offices in Congleton, the successful candidate will work as part of a small, high achieving team to deliver excellent results for our national B2B & consumer brand clients.

Ideally, you will have been working at a similar level within an agency environment or be working in the media and looking to use your expertise within a PR management role.

We are looking for someone who has had experience of supporting a range of B2B and consumer brands, a real do-er, and someone ready to get stuck in and really make a difference. And in return you will be given the opportunity to grow and flourish, further developing your skills in a fun, caring and lively environment.

You will have experience of trade and consumer media outreach and impressive press coverage delivery and have a good understanding of how to incorporate social platforms within campaigns. You will also have the ability to manage and guide more junior team members, and work across multiple client accounts.

A little bit about us: Dating back over 15 years, we are passionate about providing ‘best in class’ support for our national client base. We have grown organically, through word of mouth – we have very strong client relationships, and are ambitious to forge new ones.
