[POSITION FILLED] Communications Associate (5 months FTC)

23rd November, 2020

The title: Communications Associate

Job type: Full-time, five month fixed term contract

The job in one line: A communications role with a focus on technology PR

The agency: Hard Numbers is a comms agency obsessed with sales. (A bit more on that here.) We’re brand new which means every person we hire right now will have the opportunity to shape the future of the agency. We work across a range of marketing channels, primarily media relations, business development, paid media and email marketing.

The core of this role is PR, however there’ll be opportunities to learn about other areas like paid media management, email marketing and content marketing.

What are we looking for?

  • Experience: The ideal candidate will have 1-2 years of experience in a PR role from an agency background. You might have worked as a junior account executive or an account executive before.
  • Client experience: The majority of your clients will be in the technology sector. Some of them will be B2B technology startups, others will be consumer tech clients.
  • Reviews experience a big bonus: Your largest account will be a consumer technology company with a large reviews programme, so experience working on a review focussed press office account will be a big bonus

What do we want to see un an ideal candidate?

An insatiable appetite to learn: The critical thing for this role is that you want to learn, and you see working on new areas as a bonus. You’ll be one of the first hires at a new agency, which means you’ll be able to shape the future of the company.

Super organised: You’ll be supported by senior colleagues at every step of the way. But you’ll be given plenty of ownership, too, so we need to trust that when something is left with you, it’s getting done.

Salary: £22-25k
