Are you passionate about the hair and beauty industry? Do you know your hot wax from your strip wax, your Russian volume from your classic lashes and your demi-permanent hair colour from your semi-permanent hair colour? Are you crazy about nails and skincare and trying the best professional treatments in the UK today? Do you know about the biggest issues and trends in the industry right now? Have you got a sound understanding of what matters most to beauty journalists and influencers? If this sounds like you, then a rare and exciting opportunity to join one of the most celebrated and successful names in the hair and beauty industry awaits.
Since 2006, Sweet Squared has been marketing and distributing best-in-class hair and beauty products and services to professionals across the UK and Ireland. And always, as we say, “with love & respect”.
We’ve been enjoying several years of rapid growth and we don’t plan to stop growing any time soon! As a result, our fantastic team of ‘Squares’ is growing rapidly too. As part of this, we want to complement our Marketing & PR team with a new PR Executive to work across our hair and beauty brands.
The right candidate will have already been working in the field of hair, beauty or fashion for at least 18 months and will have great contacts amongst beauty press and influencers. Reaching-out to press and influencers, building relationships and creating advocates for our brand will all be integral to this role. It is based in Leeds but will require travel to London and possibly other parts of the UK for events, meetings and launches. Planning and hosting events, conducting press appointments, writing press releases and selling-in stories to generate meaningful press coverage for our portfolio of brands will form a key part of your daily workload. We’re looking for somebody with great contacts in the consumer press and with experience of influencer PR to help build our presence and following on key social media platforms.
The role requires excellent communication skills to help us expand our network of contacts and would suit somebody who has worked in a PR agency managing multiple brands or possibly somebody who has worked in a London agency or beauty house and is looking to relocate to the north.
This role will involve working on the following brands: CND™, Shellac, KEVIN.MURPHY, LASHUS, SACHAJUAN, Nimue Skin Technology, MoroccanTan, Alter Ego, Light Elegance & wax:one.
