    YOUR IDENTITY

    A reliable brand guardian, a creative thinker, an energetic linchpin

  • YOUR PURPOSE

    To be a pivotal part of the PR & Comms team working together to deliver effective PR and communication strategies that drive brand awareness and communicate our client’s key messages. To be the backbone of the team learning all you can about your craft.

    YOUR IDENTITY

    A people person, a grafter, a clairvoyant, a coverage hound, a team player

    YOUR BELIEFS

    I’m here to learn and grow. It’s OK not to know the answer, it’s not OK to not know the answer. Everybody makes mistakes, it’s how you learn from them that is important.

    I have the most important job on the team. I am the backbone, the lynchpin. It might seem like I am stuck doing the unglamorous stuff but its vital to the smooth running of the team. It’s all part of the learning curve and everyone else has done it as they started out in the business.

    PR & comms as a career offers me limitless opportunities – it’s all up to me how much I want it and which direction I want to go.

    PR is so much more than product placement. It’s story-telling, and there are infinite ways to tell your story. We’re all journalists now.

    PR is like advertising, only it’s believable. Compelling story-telling has the power to move people’s hearts and minds and that, in turn, creates action.

    There’s no better feeling than seeing your piece of coverage go live.

    A PR’s job is never done; there is always one more call to make.

    YOUR BEHAVIOUR

    You have endless energy and an infectious love of your craft. You’re keen to get stuck in.

    You love nothing more than securing that piece of coverage, exceeding that target, impressing your line manager.

    You pride yourself on never having to be chased. You’re a master at anticipating the teams’ needs and getting ahead of them.

    You’re a strong communicator, an expert at managing upwards and sharing progress updates. You’re a voracious learner and hungry to understand your industry more. You don’t wait to be told, you come with suggestions.
