On behalf of our growing client, we are recruiting for a talented Senior PR Account Executive.

The Senior PR Account Executive will be responsible for:

  • Draft press releases and features which need zero structural amends and few or no corrections, e.g., typos
  • Secure press coverage for clients, and have an awareness of whether an account has enough press coverage / is on track to meet monthly objectives
  • Follow the direction of the Account Manager and Account Director
  • Identify relevant proactive media opportunities, also recommending strong ideas, recommendations, or synopses for these opportunities
  • Support Junior Account Executives, helping them to get through their to-do lists and delegating small tasks to them
  • Monitor all Response Source queries, identifying relevant opportunities and flagging them to the team within their deadlines, also recommending strong ideas, recommendations, or synopses for these opportunities
  • Attend networking events, seminars, and conferences, including out-of-hours, as required in order to maintain personal professional development and to build networking skills, contacts and new business contacts
  • Plan for client meetings and take clients through significant sections of an agenda during client meetings

The Senior PR Account Executive will have the following:

  • Possess a can-do attitude, willing to roll their sleeves up with a wide range of tasks from admin through to support office functions, e.g., coordinating shopping, ordering stationery, etc.
  • Demonstrate the ability to take on more account planning responsibilities, showing awareness of the wider implications of coverage, and understanding the need to hit monthly targets
  • Not only be able to correspond via email and telephone with clients and ensure they feel comfortable with this contact time, but also be able to hold professional conversations and maintain an interpersonal relationship with them at face-to-face events, meetings, or client entertainment events
  • Previous experience in an Account Executive position
