In addition, you will be involved in bringing in new business, market and client research, project managing the production of communications collateral, writing copy and developing creative communications strategies to meet a wide range of challenges and new business development.

You should possess excellent verbal and written skills, be confident at identifying and pitching news and feature ideas, at home with digital and social media, confident in identifying PR opportunities, and be committed to adding value to our client relationships. You should also possess excellent people skills and be adept at applying these in various situations, whether it’s at a networking event, hosting a cross-agency meeting or managing junior members of your team. You will be at ease with unfamiliar tasks and situations, be comfortable juggling competing priorities and retain a cool head under pressure.
