PR Account Director

Opportunity

We’re on the lookout for a fast-thinking, results-driven, client-wowing Account Director to join our expanding PR team and play an active role in the growth and development of the agency. 

Always looking for an opportunity to impress,  your confident, front-foot approach will regularly exceed client expectations, resulting in award-winning work along the way. 

Excited to work for an agency with a portfolio of leading UK travel and hospitality brands, including Hoseasons, cottages.com, Awaze, Hotel du Vin, Malmaison and Frasers Hospitality, you’ll have demonstrable travel PR experience, including media and influencer relations. 

You’ll also be equally at home writing an insight-based, 500-word thought leadership piece, as developing a PR campaign to highlight a new brand partnership. 

A collaborative mindset and bags of ideas are also a must for this key agency role. 

If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. 

Please send your CV and a brief email, video or voice message explaining why you think you are perfect for the role to marks@thissrl.co.uk
