  • Looking after our clients, attending client meetings, being a daily point of contact for our clients, all in line with our key values.
  • Identifying PR opportunities and trends and constantly being ahead of the curve.
  • Taking a whole view of a client’s offering and being able to advise confidently on issues and ideas that are much broader than PR and digital content.
  • Independently managing last minute requests and when necessary, crisis PR.
  • Juggling a busy workload calmly and being able to prioritise efficiently.
  • Keeping across relevant publications and up to date with current affairs and trends.
  • Meticulous record keeping.
