Job vacancy: Account Manager

About Amazon PR

Established in 2000, Amazon PR is the leading PR agency specialising in work with charities, not-for-profit organisations and brands with a social purpose. We work closely with our clients on an interesting and varied range of issues, supporting policy change, volunteer recruitment, fundraising, and promoting support and advice services.

In recent months we have launched two major campaigns – one tackling homelessness and another on conservation issues. Later this year we will launch an online knowledge hub to enable perinatal peer support to flourish. Our ongoing clients include a care home provider, experts in legacy giving, a London housing and support charity, and a body that funds research into the needs of those moving from the Armed Forces into civilian life.

Our small, friendly team is based in Islington and works on projects with partner agencies and consultants, including digital and social media specialists, filmmakers and public affairs experts. We offer flexibility and a down-to-earth culture.

We are very proud of our work and the way we help our clients make a difference in the world. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to grow within a leading specialist agency, and to make a meaningful contribution to the charity sector.

About the role

The Account Manager role involves developing strategies and tactical plans, and delivering PR programmes, ranging from day-to-day media handling, to large-scale integrated campaigns. We are looking for someone with a flair for creativity, strategic thinking and innovation. Handling multiple clients and projects, you will need to be highly organised and skilled in project management.

We expect you to have a passion for the media and an excellent record of achieving media coverage. Outstanding writing skills and a tenacious approach to getting results are a must. We want a proactive self-starter, able to take responsibility while also being a genuine team-player.

You must have a solid understanding of issues-based communications and policy-driven influencing campaigns, as well as being highly numerate and commercially aware. With excellent interpersonal skills, you will have experience managing junior staff and their career development, as well as confidently advising clients and reporting into senior colleagues.

As well as handling and managing the delivery of agreed work, you’ll get involved in developing new projects for existing clients and pitching for new business, so you’ll need strong presentation skills and plenty of fresh ideas.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person. Being part of a small, specialist team means you will have responsibility, a broad remit and the chance to learn and develop.

Applicants must have experience at AM level (or equivalent, if in-house) and ideally have worked both in agency and with voluntary or public sector organisations.

Salary: £35,000 per year.

 To apply you will need to send:
  • Your CV: outlining relevant experience, full employment history and qualifications, plus contact details.
  • A one-page supporting statement: explaining why you would like the role, how you meet the requirements and when you could start.

By: midnight on Wednesday 30 October 2019.
