PR Manager, Cambridge -
Are you a quick-thinking, ambitious individual who enjoys taking control within a fast-paced environment? Brand Recruitment have partnered exclusively with this leading organisation, who are looking for an experienced PR professional to join their extremely passionate team. This role offers the opportunity to progress and grow with the business, if you are a born-leader with consumer and FMCG experience then this could be perfect for you. With all marketing done in house you must be capable of managing several tasks at once, be used to working within a proactive office and always staying focused on the goals of the company. Ideally you will be coming to the position with some existing relationships with Influencers, bloggers and broader journalists within the consumer sector.

As this role is a new addition to the business this role really is a blank canvass. You will be expected to take full ownership of all your work, whilst also planning and implementing a PR strategy for the business. This role requires someone with experience in crisis communications, as you will be the first point of contact for all media and therefore will be expected to keep up the brands representation at all times.

As the PR manager, some of your responsibilities will include:
*Building and maintaining relationships with major influencers, journalists and the general media to help build popularity.
*Writing news releases and other PR-related content for digital and offline, such as social media posts and magazine editorial.
*Be willing and able to work in a full on, 24/7 environment whilst staying level-headed and calm during stressful times.
*Working well independently but also cooperating and communicating efficiently with your fellow team members.
*Coming up with broad PR ideas that are guaranteed to get the brand noticed.
*You will report to senior stakeholders within the business to demonstrate the significant difference that PR is making to the brand.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a hard-working, eager PR professional to join a small team with big ideas who have high hopes for the future. Due to the location of the office, you can commute easily from Peterborough, Huntingdon, Newmarket, Ely, St Neots, Bedford, Royston, Hitchin, and - thanks to convenient train links - areas of London, too.
