CLOSED: Communications Consultant (B2B)

3rd July, 2020

Job type: Full-time, permanent

The job in one line: Run comms accounts, make clients love us, and be the beating heart of the agency

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.

What do we need from you?

  • Media relations: You know how to run a press office and you know how to run big campaigns. ‘Does this idea generate coverage?’ is something you can answer with confidence and authority.
  • Client management: This is a pivotal role in the agency. You’ll own client relationships which means you’ll make it your business to build trust and confidence with new and existing clients.   
  • Managing up and down: You’ll manage junior staff members, which means the ability and desire to train and mentor junior staff is vital. But you’ll be managing up, too – if one of the co-founders misses a deadline, you’ll be the one to call them out.
  • Flexible: We’re pretty new and, right now, we’re pretty small. That means everyone gets involved at all levels. This cuts both ways – sometimes it means making decisions that’ll impact the direction of the agency, sometimes it means taking on tasks typically reserved for juniors. If you don’t like variety, this job isn’t for you.     

What are we looking for?

Deep level tech knowledge: we’re a B2B tech agency. Most of our clients at the moment are in the fintech area, but we expect our client list to grow to include other B2B tech clients (healthtech/martech/edtech etc) and consumer tech, too.

Experienced with running press office accounts: You’ll have plenty of experience running press office accounts in the £5-8k a month region.

Hungry to learn: The agency is going to grow and change a lot over the next 18 months. We don’t know what challenges we’ll face but we know we’ll need to grow and adapt to meet them. This excites us, and will excite the ideal candidate too.

Salary: £35-45k*

*Note, we have a senior communications consultant role coming up, so if you’re more senior but want to chat about joining, do get in touch.
