This is an entry level role, so we’ll take a look at any go-getter with plenty of vim and vigour.

Having a good understanding of agency life would certainly be useful as well as a good understanding of modern digital comms.

Organisation is a big deal – you’ll need to keep on top of a fair whack. 

Being personable is essential (no Dick Dastardlys or Moaning Myrtles, please). As mentioned you’ve got to be savvy – having a blood hound-esque nose for a new biz opp, as well as a talent for generating and managing leads through various marketing activities

The role is essentially that of Pic PR pioneer – driving the business forward, and taking us into new territory by winning new clients.

Basically, you’ll be marketing us!!!

DAY-TO-DAY TASKS WILL INCLUDE:

  • Researching potential opportunities 
  • Updating the agency's CRM system 
  • Managing and assisting with the agency’s own sales and marketing activities  
  • Contacting leads (phone/email), and securing new business appointments (face-to-face and on the old Zooms) 
  • Assisting with putting together proposals. You’ll be generating a TON of these (of course) 
  • Hitting new business & marketing targets. Go get ‘em tiger 

Requirements and prospects

Desired skills

Essential:

  • An appetite for sales and marketing  
  • A real passion for our core sectors or at least a couple (hospitality, care, tech, HR & professional services, food & drink, fashion)) 
  • Creative thinker. We all get stuck into the mix when it comes to generating ideas and stunts for clients – so some original thinking goes a long way 
  • An interest in PR/Marketing in general. Believing in what you’re selling is always a bonus! 

Desirable:

  • Polished and professional appearance. We all follow haute couture in this office, so if you’re not down with Franck Sorbier…no. Just be presentable. 
  • Good presentation skills. This isn’t a reference to a PowerPoint wizard, so think presentation in general. 
  • Ability to work well in a team 

Personal qualities

Essential:

  • A real appetite for digital comms. Digital: it’s the future. We’ve tasted it. 

Desirable:

  • Calmness under pressure and ability to achieve tight deadlines. Running around yelling ‘Keep calm, Captain Mainwaring!’ in a crisis, just puts the rest of the team on edge 
  • Positive attitude. Whilst we love a bit of self-deprecation, please, no misery guts; we’re an upbeat bunch! 
  • Fun and friendly demeanour *rolls eyes in fun and friendly way* 
  • Finally, a good sense of humour. Yeah, we’re dead funny. So, you’d better be too 

Desired qualifications

Essential:

  • GCSE English & maths, grade 9-4/A-C (or equivalent qualifications) 

Desirable:

  • If applicable, e.g. 2 A-Level qualifications (or equivalent qualifications) 

Future prospects

Potential for permanent employment following successful completion of the apprenticeship.
