London, £60,000 – £75,000
One of my longest standing clients is looking for an exceptional Consumer PR Associate Director to join their growing UK team at an integral time in the agency’s development. Originally set up in the USA and with just under 10 offices across the country, they have a team of around 25 staff based in central London, acting as their UK/European hub.
With a recent change in senior management, the agency are going through a period of reassessment, to ensure that the UK & US are working closely & in an integrated manner. The focus of the UK at the moment is more on the corporate/B2B side and whilst this is an area of the business they are also growing, they are looking to establish a more focused consumer practice. As such, they are appointing a Consumer PR Associate Director who is able to build on the existing consumer clients they have, sell their consumer offering to their current client portfolio and build their consumer account base in the UK.
The successful Consumer PR Associate Director will have the opportunity to work pretty autonomously, with direction from the UK MD and the US and for somebody who is looking to take on a more senior opportunity that allows a lot more responsibility and accountability, this is a no brainer.
They need somebody with excellent client servicing and account handling skills, as well as somebody who holds gravitas with clients and is able to command respect. There is likely to be a fair amount of new business involved in the role, so demonstrable results in this area is imperative. As with any Consumer PR Associate Director role, they also need somebody who is able to lead from the front, mentoring, advising and growing junior staff as they progress up the ranks at the agency.
With great benefits and a very competitive opinion when it comes to salary, this opportunity is a fantastic one for those Consumer PR Associate Directors looking for a little more clout in their next role and the opportunity to work with a growing agency where the sky is the limit.
