The Company

Freedom Media was established in 2011 and has seen exciting growth in its range of services and client base over recent years. To help with a number of exciting new projects we have underway, we are looking to expand our creative team further to be part of our future journey.

We have a broad range of local, UK and international clients and have developed an excellent reputation across all areas of our business, which includes video production, graphic design, digital, marketing, PR and event management.

Our team members are highly skilled and hard working. We all enjoy what we do and, importantly, we like to have fun. Our satisfaction comes from making our clients happy and delivering value for money services which helps make their business better.

The role

We are looking for a highly motivated and organised individual to join our team as a PR Account Manager, helping to co-ordinate campaigns as well as dealing with a wide range of client projects.

This demanding, but extremely fulfilling, role will require you to oversee projects on a day-to-day basis, ensuring that they run smoothly and achieve their potential. Daily contact with clients is a key part of the job, so offering new and forward-thinking ideas is essential to the productive communication process. A very confident and assertive attitude is necessary. You will report to the directors, in a fast-paced creative environment and will be an excellent team player.

We are ideally looking for someone who has 3-5 years success in a similar role. Whilst a CIPR qualification would be beneficial; it is not essential if you have the relevant experience.

Skills/Experience required

  • A solid background in PR with a flair for creativity, strategic thinking and innovation

  • A persuasive and confident approach to creative projects
  • A great communicator – excellent presentation, verbal and written skills
  • Keen attention to detail and budgetary restraints
  • Full awareness of creative processes and techniques
  • Good industry knowledge and experience in building influential networks
  • Outstanding organisational skills with an ability to manage multiple clients and projects

This type of role can be demanding, so real motivation is required to thrive. Working hours will be standard office times; however deadlines may stretch this further.

Due to the volume of work coming into the agency at present we ideally need someone to start as soon as possible/immediately. Freelancers are welcome to apply for a short term contract.
