PR & Communications Manager - £50M Fitness Nutrition Brand
London, EC2R
Competitive Salary Package + Benefits Package + Awesome New Office

Ready for your next PR challenge? Ready to join a £50 Million Sports Nutrition British success story? Ready to have some fun?

If yes, we'd love to hear from you!

Our Story:

We are at the start of an incredible journey, with a mission to move the business from a manufacturing-led retailer to a destination brand for active nutrition. We want to shake up the sports nutrition industry through disruptive marketing campaigns which help people think differently about our brand – and we need your help!

We’re looking for someone to come in and own/develop our PR and Comms function, helping the business think differently about earned media and the role it plays as part of the wider comms mix.

Where you come in:

Bashing out a press release and sending it out isn’t our thing. We want someone who can think about our key audience demographics and understand the media landscape for those audiences. We want someone channel neutral, who understands print media deadlines as much as they understand influencer engagement rates. Most importantly, we want someone who doesn’t just see us as a sports nutrition company, but understands the role we play in the wider lifestyle of our customers – and how the earned media can play a significant role in helping us demonstrate that.

There’s a huge job to do here, and it won’t be for the faint-hearted. We require someone ambitious, brave, independent and creative, who’s able to work with our Head of Brand and develop the comms function from the ground up.

What will you get in return? 

The opportunity to create fully integrated earned media campaigns utilising our in-house team of content creators, work with world-class ambassadors such as Anthony Joshua, and play an important role in driving the brand forward and creating work you’re genuinely proud of.

The role will report in to the Head of Brand within the Brand team, however, a great deal of interaction will required with the Creative, CRM, eCommerce and Product Teams.

+ A minimum of three years’ PR experience, working either agency side or in-house
+ Existing contacts in the UK consumer media and influencer space
+ Outstanding copywriting skills

+ Passion for PR and excitement in shaping a disruptive brand comms plan

Salary & Benefits:

+ We’re open & honest, actively listening to employee feedback to help us in our goal to become one of the best places to work
