PR Account Executive
Propeller PR has a brilliant opportunity for a PR Account Executive to make their mark at this fast-growing independent PR agency serving the media, marketing, advertising and technology markets.
This position will suit someone who is excited by the opportunity for rapid growth in experience and responsibility, and who is seeking a challenging new role in a rewarding agency environment. You will have plenty of scope to develop your PR career at Propeller and immerse yourself in the fast-moving worlds of advertising, media and technology. You will also benefit from PRCA training courses and a mentoring scheme which is available to all staff.
You will have one to three years of experience, ideally at an agency, and you will be ready to work with clients and take on more responsibility. Excellent face-to-face, telephone and email communications skills are essential. You will need to be able to develop close links with journalists, create story angles they will want to buy and pitch them in effectively. You will be an experienced user of Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and other social networks, and understand how social media can add value to a client’s PR and communications strategy. You must also love and consume traditional media avidly.
As part of a tightly-knit team, you will also contribute to the ongoing development of the agency by taking part in new business pitch meetings, attending industry events and helping to organise some of Propeller’s own events.
Based in the heart of the West End on Charing Cross Road, Propeller’s client experience ranges from working with media industry giants like WPP and Disney to fast-growing digital economy players such as TubeMogul and Quantcast. Not only do we have excellent media contacts and a thriving social media department, but we also have a mobile apps development team that has several apps already on the Apple iPhone platform. We have also recently launched a new content division headed up by ex-Marketing Week deputy editor Branwell Johnson.
We make our clients’ products, people and ideas famous through offline, online (including social media and SEO) and eyeline channels (events and face-to-face communication). Our approach involves shaping and sharing compelling content with the influencers who are important to our clients. We’re also a fun, lively and sociable team – recent team outings have included ping pong at Bounce, karaoke and a trip up the Shard.
