We are looking for an experienced, creative and driven PR Account Manager to join our team and play a key role in an exciting period of growth at Prominent.

 

This role is intrinsic to protecting and upholding the values of our business. These include maintaining the highest levels of customer service at all times, constantly challenging our clients, being creative, bold and organised, and being a team player.

You will be based primarily at the Prominent base in Felixstowe but will be required to work in-house at some of our clients’ places of work from time to time, so a car is essential.

  8. Supporting the Account Director and Senior Management Team with new business proposals and pitching

The ideal candidate will:

  • Be a lively, energetic and enthusiastic candidate who has a 'can do' approach.
  • Fully understand PR strategy including a client’s business objectives and how they align
  • Be able to identify a client’s target market, customer journey and relevant platforms and key messages
  • Have the ability to learn quickly, work as part of a team, handle a number of tasks at the same time, and be able to prioritise tasks
  • Have exceptional writing skills
  • Have a willingness to succeed, will be proactive and will take pride in their work
  • Be ambitious with a hard work ethic who is keen to progress their career
  • Be able to produce a wide range of high-quality written material within a tight deadline
  • Have good time and workload management skills - must be a strong multi-tasker
  • Be a good team player who is willing to learn from team members and who can take constructive criticism
  • Be able to come up with ideas independently and see them through
  • Have some experience of managing a small number of staff
