PR Account Director - Technology PR Agency. £45,000 - £55,000 + Benefits. Kingston-upon-Thames
We have an excellent opportunity for someone with a genuine desire to help play a key role in the continued growth of a Tech PR Agency based a short ride outside London. Our client is passionate about creating bold, insightful work for clients and committed to investing in their team to stay at the forefront of the industry.
We are looking for a PR Account Director with strong experience of the B2B technology market to support clients and help secure new business opportunities in this sector. Candidates will have an established network of key industry influencers and proven experience of devising and implementing integrated PR and marketing campaigns that deliver measureable impact to IT clients. Keen knowledge of the digital landscape is also essential here in helping clients maximise digital channels to amplify content, drive visibility and SEO and get results.
They have an incredibly talented team of people so the new AD will be very well supported, both with junior team members, and senior colleagues with a wealth of experience across PR and technology.
New business will obviously be an important requirement of the role. You will be well supported with a full-time new business director and senior management team, but confidence in developing strategies, leading a new business pitch and having gravitas in front of clients and prospects is essential.
Our client also expects their Account Directors, and all team members, to play an active part in the running of the business. They are very transparent about plans for the agency and employees that do really well at the agency are those that take personal responsibility for supporting key areas of the business alongside client work, such as marketing, social media and training. With a love of new ideas and enthusiasm, and being open to changing the way they do things to test new approaches, this is a great agency to be a part of.
More about the PR Agency:
The agency was founded in 2011 to challenge the established PR agency status quo.
Their aim was to create an agency that could rival any of the established market leaders with a team that is hungrier, more commercially savvy and with an ethos that is altogether more inspiring — an agency where clients get greater mindshare, a more personalised service and better results, but where employees aren’t burnt out and enjoy a genuine work-life balance.
The team of 27 consultants brings together the right mix of strategic flair and market knowledge — creating high-impact PR and marketing campaigns. Our client is also committed to staying at the forefront of the PR industry; the agency and its consultants are encouraged to embrace new digital and social media channels and explore ways these can be used to help clients, and today they are actively supporting clients across an integrated mix of PESO channels.
The agency is committed to providing a work-life balance for its employees. They are fanatical about doing a great job for clients, but not at the cost of the employees. If you’re regularly working late then they see this as a failure on their part to resource properly, manage client expectations or provide sufficient account support.
