Junior PR Consultants – Join our team!
Missive is the UK’s Small PR Consultancy of the Year, as awarded by the PRCA at the end of 2017. We exist with the sole aim of delivering a material impact – both to our clients and to the lives of our staff.
We experienced exponential growth in 2017, going from a team of five to 12. With a rapidly expanding client portfolio boasting globally renowned brands alongside some of the UK’s most exciting startups, we are now looking for a dynamic Junior PR Consultant to join our team.
Our team of communications experts includes some of the brightest brains in the industry, with collective experience spanning every corner of corporate tech PR (with a dash of policy and governance to boot).
Each and every member of the team works with autonomy, armed with the ability to explore and experiment to drive results both for our clients and for Missive as a whole. We are fortunate to have a truly fun and dynamic culture which means that most days will see the office full despite our flexible working policy.
Missive is passionate about delivering genuine business outcomes for technology brands using strategic communications. We are proud to be able to say that our clients have won customers, VC funding, high-calibre executive talent, external accreditation and staff retention – all as a result of our work.
The role would suit someone with either 12 months’ PR experience or at least 12 months’ experience in an office environment.
Your role and responsibility includes:
- Effectively handle a portfolio of clients
- Play a critical part in bigger account teams
- Write high quality and engaging content that clearly articulates your client’s story
- Achieve great coverage results through media relations
- Make good use of your own contacts and different media angles
- Undertake weekly and monthly reporting across accounts
- Play a hands-on role for event management
- Support the wider Missive team with business development tasks
- Learn quickly – about the world of PR and your own personal development
You will have:
- A strong understanding or some experience in the PR world
- Strong writing skills
- An ambitious attitude and self-starter mentality
- Outstanding time-keeping and prioritisation skills
- Excellent attention to detail
- A thirst for news
- An interest and knowledge of the technology and B2B sector
What you will get from Missive
Supercharged career development: You will be working in a high quality agency that’s growing at pace. You’ll have access to a company-wide Missive Academy courses, in house experts and an Executive Coach for personal and career coaching. On top of all of that we also offer tailored training days to help you develop the professional and personal skills you want. You won’t be stuck doing the same boring tasks day-in and day-out. If you want to try something new, put your hand up and it’s yours!
A host of benefits: Annual lifestyle allowance, weekly personal trainer in the office (optional!), a day off for your birthday (or an alternative day if you do want to come in and eat cake) and the annual company trip – the ‘Missive Massive’.
A great office environment: Missive is based in WeWork Moorgate – a young and lively co-working space. You will receive global WeWork membership, giving you access to any WeWork building in the world, unlimited coffee, biscuits, showers and bike storage, free breakfast on a Monday and an open invite to a huge range of networking and events. Once inside Missive’s own office you’ll also benefit from sporting sweepstakes, regular tea runs and (questionable) Spotify playlists.
Complete flexibility: Although we think you’ll love the office, you’ll also be given the kit and the freedom to work where, when and how you choose. We don’t measure our employees on the hours they do or where they do them. It’s what we achieve for our clients that’s meaningful.
And a competitive salary: We want everyone at Missive to enjoy coming to work and feel like they’re rewarded accordingly. We offer highly competitive salaries for the industry and an annual bonus based on personal and company performance.
