London, £32,000 – £38,000
We’re currently recruiting an exciting PR Account Manager role, which would suit an ambitious and passionate PR specialist. As an integral part of the team at this specialist legal PR agency, the PR Account Manager will take the lead on a small portfolio of clients, working with both legal sector businesses & international law firms.
In addition you’ll have the opportunity to support on a number of litigation projects – handling communications on behalf of businesses going through the litigation process.
An interest in the legal industry is of course important, but previous experience of working with law firms etc isn’t a necessity! If you’re intrigued by the industry and keen to immerse yourself in the world of legal communications, then read on…
As a PR Account Manager you’ll naturally have strong client management skills, be adept at building relationships, managing expectations and advising on strategy. Impeccable writing skills are a must. You’ll draft documents, press releases and PR plans. Equally, strong media relations skills and a knowledge of the legal/business media landscape is crucial.
You’ll also manage client accounts day to day, line manage Account Executives & delegate work load, monitor the news agenda, work on new business proposals & take an active role in pitch teams, as well as attend networking events. A good understanding of social media & how this plays a part in the role of PR, would be advantageous.
With the agency going from strength to strength, this is a prime time to be joining the team! They have an excellent training programme in place, and due to the client roster expanding beyond the core ‘law firm’ accounts they started with, into a range of new legal businesses (eg legal platforms and legal tech firms), there is a genuine opportunity here to further your career.
Benefits include pension, 25 days holiday, flexible working, private health, Christmas gift & an agency performance based bonus!
