Alma PR - Consultant 

The Company:

Alma PR is an independent financial communications consultancy delivering quality advice and high levels of service. When operating in a landscape that is complicated and fast-moving our clients need an expert communications partner that is right alongside them – in good times and bad. Our aim is to become a seamless extension of our client in-house capability, to deliver a service that shows we care as much about their business as they do. To do so, our philosophy is to ensure we are always ahead of the rapidly evolving needs and demands of the investment community. We are communications experts our clients can trust.

In return, successful candidates will be given the support, guidance and tools needed to excel in their careers; treated with respect and consideration; and encouraged to use their time wisely, with a focus on quality of output not hours at a desk.
