PR Consultant Opportunity at Pagefield

Pagefield - the award-winning integrated communications consultancy which celebrated its tenth year in 2020 - are looking to grow our team. We are recruiting for a new Consultant, and two new Researchers to support our expanding portfolio of clients across a wide range of sectors including technology, financial services, transport, FMCG, property and infrastructure.

We are looking for a Consultant (Account Manager / Account Director equivalent) who specialises in PR and has a passion for media relations. Candidates should have first-rate experience of delivering high quality client work within an agency environment, with a growing network of contacts in the media as well as creative flair and a campaigning mindset. The ability to think freely, critically and challenge perceived wisdom – on your feet and in writing – is essential.

You’ll need:

  • A consistent track record of delivering and overseeing client programmes to a standard that exceeds client expectations
  • Strong account management and client relationships skills, acting as the day to day lead on client teams
  • A solid network of journalists that can be used to support client programmes and new business efforts
  • A passion for creative campaigns and results-driven programmes
  • The ability to seek out and drive new business initiatives, developing and following up on leads and supporting the conversion of opportunities
  • Excellent leadership skills with experience managing teams and delivering through others
  • At least 4 years’ experience in corporate and/or financial PR, partly – if not wholly – spent working in an agency. Additional experience in journalism (print and digital) is very welcome
  • A results-oriented mentality with a demonstrable hunger to secure coverage, generating opportunities for our clients and leading client teams to do the same
  • A detailed understanding of how the media landscape is evolving and where Pagefield can add value
  • Confidence generating and delivering campaigns across multiple channels and audiences, including social media and digital campaigning

In addition to an engaging role, clear career path and competitive salary, Pagefield offers a generous pension scheme, gym, private healthcare or private members’ club membership, annual bonus scheme, an active social calendar and encouragement of networking during and out of office hours. We have recently introduced a new entirely flexible working policy which enables all Pagefielders to work remotely and arrange their diary in whatever way best suits them and their clients. We also welcome applications from candidates looking for a 4 day week or other flexible arrangement.

This is a unique agency looking for very special new team members. If you think that might be you please email a copy of your CV to [email protected].
