Experienced but frustrated Director?  Looking for a challenge and career development?  Fantastic chance to join and help head up the PR & Social department of a well know and highly respected integrated creative agency.

The client portfolio consists of large brand names with a UK remit.  The challenge for you is to grow both the P&L and diversify the client roster – to grow a generalist consumer agency that continues to have its own clients but uptakes opportunities to work in conjunction with the group agency.

  • Overall responsibility for the quality of day to day team outputs ensuring they meet or exceed client expectations – and being able to instil best practice account management standards
  • Financial management – overseeing client budget, overall management and reporting division revenue
  • Broad understanding of media – strategic media relations, news generation, crisis management, stakeholder engagement, the social & digital landscape
  • A coach and mentor to junior team members – setting clear objectives, conducting regular reviews of progress and identifying training where needed

 You will be:

  • A creatively minded PR practitioner with a minimum of ten years PR agency experience working on a mixture of consumer and corporate clients
  • Someone with excellent relationship-building and communication skills: with the ability to motivate, manage and creatively inspire the team.
  • Confident in presenting with proven experience of leading pitches, client presentations and meetings.
  • Able to operate strategically across a range of industries, quickly getting to grips with different sectors and bringing intelligence and creativity to communications.
  • Someone who champions insight, imagination and cultural relevance in every campaign developed – and able to work with multi-disciplinary teams together to deliver it.
  • Well-connected with proven networking and business development ability.
  • Strong commercial acumen and with previous financial and budget responsibility experience.
