We’re open to new ideas and not afraid of a challenge, all of which underpins our drive to deliver the best possible results for clients and enjoy ourselves while we do it.

- Support the account teams with reporting and account management
You’ll have some experience of working in a PR consultancy or an in-house PR team (even if just from an internship) and have a growing understanding of the business-to-business sector. You’ll be a strong writer and communicator with the ability to develop close professional relationships with clients and colleagues. You’ll be ambitious and proactive with excellent organisational skills, and you will relish the opportunity to work in a fun, creative agency environment.
