Graduate & Emerging Talent Scheme, Brand & Consumer Public Relations (Sept 2022 Start)

If you’re looking to start your communications career in an award-winning global agency, then this might just be the role for you!

We’re currently looking for the next generation of talent to join our award-winning Brand & Consumer team in September 2022.  Offered as an initial 12-month contract with the opportunity for a permanent role at Account Executive or Senior Account executive upon successful completion.

The Work

We believe in creating connections through storytelling. We believe in truly understanding the brand and what it can stand for, using that understanding to create compelling content, amplifying that content across earned, owned and shared channels and delivering results that show commercial benefit.

We’re the people who made Crocs cool, supported victims of domestic violence during lockdown with Refuge, got the UK to walk 4.5 times around the world from home with Fitbit. We created the world’s first LGBT+ newswire to highlight injustices all over the world with Thomson Reuters and sent Samsung into space..

With the world around us changing at an unstoppable pace, we’re constantly innovating and with that, creating provocative campaigns that focus on what matters to people and affecting real change for communities. 

From creative sessions, events, and media pitching to briefing celebrities on a brand campaign -no two days are the same in the Brand and Consumer Marketing team.  We are big believers in the power of collaboration and work with FH teams and practices all over the world to deliver best in class integrated campaigns that drive the big results for our clients.

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the biggest and fastest growing teams in the agency, to work with a range of clients – from the world’s leading tech brands to fast-growth scale-ups across a range of sectors including sports and entertainment, food and drink, travel & retail, technology and FMCG.

Your Role

You will be responsible for driving media coverage, crafting high quality content, supporting new business activities and ensuring the smooth running of the administrative and operational aspects of accounts.

You will support multiple client accounts from day one, supporting account teams to drive results through media relations, executive profiling, content development, social media and events support.

You will also play a role in supporting the team on new business and marketing efforts to continue to grow the practice and portfolio of clients we have. See here for current case studies.

Your day to day:

  • Developing media target lists, research around the news agenda and finding creative angles to promote stories
  • Media relations, pitching stories to journalists and drafting writing press releases and bylines
  • Assisting in the coordination of events such as press conferences, media briefings, analyst meetings, media tours and trade shows

  • Reporting and providing analysis on the results of online/offline campaign activities
  • Actively contributing to new business initiatives
