Job Type: Permanent, FullTime

A dynamic, leading UK firm of accountants and business advisers require a Senior PR & Communications Executive to play a key role in influencing the opinion of key stakeholders, by delivering powerful messaging about the firm's core strengths and suitability to meet their needs.

The role holder will report to the PR & Communications Manager, who heads up corporate communications and media relations at the firm under the oversight of the Managing Partner. PR & Comms sits within the firm's Practice Development team, which also incorporates sales, business development and marketing. The Senior PR & Communications Executive will help raise the firm's corporate profile and demonstrate their credibility and ability to meet the needs of larger clients, as well as maintain and enhance their reputation as an advocate of entrepreneurs. You will work closely with partners, managers and other members of the Practice Development team to integrate corporate messaging into all media activity and communications campaigns. You will manage proactive campaigns to develop and further raise the profile of the firm and of key spokespeople, both within the firm and its global network, and externally. Your main channels will include the media, the firm's own external and internal communications channels. You will also be the first port of call for all reactive media enquiries and will brief the firm's spokespeople accordingly and arrange all necessary follow-up.

This highly sort after role would be suitable for someone of graduate calibre or equivalent with significant experience of working with national, trade and business media, and a track record of delivering strong coverage through integrated campaigns. The Senior PR & Communications Executive will be a self-motivated, results-driven PR agency professional looking to move in-house and deliver key corporate messages through a range of channels. You will be confident in dealing with all reactive media enquiries and briefing spokespeople accordingly and be very comfortable juggling multiple projects simultaneously. The ideal candidate will also have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be comfortable advising senior level executives on media and communications issues.
