PR and social media intern

Job Reference: SS2022FPBLC1

  • Start date: July 2022 
  • Salary: London living wage 
  • Type of intern: Placement year undergraduates and graduates 
  • Duration of internship: 12 months 
  • Number of opportunities available: 1
  • Internship format: In-office 
  • Office location: London

We are one of London’s most awarded PR and social media agencies working with clients such as innocent Drinks, Weetabix, Skoda, White Claw, The Book Depositary and G2 Esports.

There are 35 of us based at our offices in Farringdon, London – split over three teams (Consumer PR, Corporate PR and Social Media/Influencers/Digital).  With a fun, but hard-working culture our team is a varied bunch - just how we like it – everyone bringing something different to the table.

We help our clients get talked about in magazines, newspapers, online and on social media.  Our campaigns aim to deliver ideas that get talked about and shared with others.  

You may have seen when Weetabix and Beans was the unexpected serving suggestion trending across social media last year?  Or maybe you saw when Trafalgar Square became an overgrown meadow for the day – a purpose-driven campaign to raise awareness of innocent’s new environmental initiative?  Both are campaigns that we created and delivered.

Our culture

We pride ourselves on being no-nonsense, straight talking and to the point.  We find that’s the best way to collaborate and do the best work. But most important is that we have fun along the way.  In fact, ‘fun’, ‘creative’ and ‘supportive’ are the words that came up most when we asked our team to describe the agency in 3 words.

What you will do:

  • Paper reading / social media review– what are the big stories for the day and what opportunities are there for our clients?
  • Team meetings – huddle with your team to set priorities and actions for the day / week
  • Media time – preparing stories, media materials and media lists and eventually (once you’re confident and ready) talking to the media to sell in client stories
  • Campaign planning – turning creative ideas into reality – from researching weird and wonderful serving suggestions for Weetabix (Beans and Bix anyone??) to helping work out how we might turn Trafalgar Square into a wild garden for the day…and everything else in between!
  • Client meetings – being part of client update meetings 
  • Writing – from press releases to social media copy
  • Brainstorms – attending brainstorms to help come up with the next award-winning idea!  
  • Friday 15 …and relax with a glass of wine or beer and snacks aplenty as each team shares updates on the week and what’s to come

Who should apply?

  • Do you have an interest in the media – how it works, how certain stories make it and others don’t?
  • Have you ever seen a brand do something cool in the press at an event or on social media and wondered how it came about?
  • Do you like the idea of tapping into your creative side?
