Rachel Harrison Communications UK is hiring - Senior Account Executive or Account Manager for Food & drink and Senior Account Executive or Account Manager for Travel, for our new London office. The right person for these roles will live and breathe eating, drinking and travelling in London and around the world, with a passion for the new and exciting.
Although supported by a global agency and international offices, we work as a small team in start-up mode and we are looking for a self-starter who has a keen understanding of and genuine interest in the UK media landscape, alongside an interest in the PR industry. We are looking for someone with prior agency experience working on public relations for food and/or drinks brands or hotels and travel brands, with a minimum of two years experience in the UK.
Your day-to-day will be working with our PR Director to proactively pitch our food & drink or travel clients as well as assist on the management of the account. You’ll also help with new business so that our portfolio in London grows. Occasionally you will be working transatlantically with our US colleagues.
The successful candidate will have strong proactive and reactive media relations skills; a good base of contacts in food & drinks media or travel media; media relations strategy experience; strong creative writing skills that spans press releases, media alerts & written content and a creative flair - the company works across more disciplines than just PR and contributing to brainstorms and being part of wider marketing strategy will come with the territory.
We are also looking for someone with an eye for trends - spotted the Negroni Sbagliato video before everyone else? Or noticed that pistachios are on everyone’s lips? You’re our kind of person.
