Account Executive – Technology PR

Account Executive – Technology PR

We’re currently looking for an account executive to join our award-winning technology team. 

Our team’s client portfolio varies from some of the world’s largest technology brands to up and coming industry challengers. Whether it’s exploring the role of artificial intelligence in modelling the future of healthcare, or finding creative ways to talk about the inner workings of elevators, or working with an Oscar-winning cinematographer to raise awareness of the part data storage plays in creating art, our days are always different, but rarely ever dull.

With over 25 communications specialists, we live and breathe the trends and issues around cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, IoT, Fintech, hardware, SaaS, telecoms, IT consulting, unified communications, cloud computing and more.  We love taking what seem like dry, technical topics, figuring out why they matter and making them easy to understand by non-technical audiences. 

 

The role:

You will have the opportunity to work across multiple client accounts, supporting account teams to drive results through media relations, executive profiling, content development, social media and events support. It’s a great opportunity to explore and learn about the core aspects of PR, uncover your strengths and abilities – and ultimately develop a better understanding of what it’s like to work in top global PR agency.

Your day to day:

  • Developing media target lists, research around the news agenda and finding creative angles to promote stories
  • Helping with the drafting of client proposals and/or media materials: plans, presentations and reports
  • Supporting campaign and programme development through relevant industry and media research
  • Contributing ideas to planning meetings and brainstorms
  • Reporting and providing analysis on the results of online/offline activities

 

About you:

  • We are looking for a team player with an entrepreneurial spirit, who is passionate about developing their career in integrated communications as part of a leading global agency. 
  • A passion for all things technology! 
  • Strong organisation and project management skills; ability to prioritise work
  • An interest in, and understanding of, the media environment and current trends and affairs
  • Excellent writing skills
  • Intellectually curious
  • A spirit of teamwork
  • Excellent knowledge of all Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook)

 

If you are eligible to work in the UK and have experience in the above we would love to hear from you! 

We are committed to creating an inclusive work environment for everyone. As the only PR Agency awarded EY’s National Equality Standard, all applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or age. Do let us know if you need any adjustments made during the interview process.
