It’s been another exciting and busy period for us all here at Prohibition. We won several awards in 2020 and we had a number of exciting new account wins, including several high street brands, and as a result, we need to expand our growing team yet again. As you’ve probably figured out, we’re no relics when it comes to clever public relations. While we do ‘the traditional stuff’ very well indeed, we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what you would expect from a specialist PR agency. So that involves lots of exciting things like online community building, social media listening, brand audits, online crisis management, content marketing and video creation and seeding.
Here’s what we’re after:
We’re looking for people with at least one year’s PR experience, with a definite interest in all things social media. You need to have solid media relations skills, have managed talented PR executives before. You need to know your blogs and Foursquare from your Snapchat, and at least pretend to understand Google spiders.
But more than anything, a hunger to learn and the right attitude is key. We want someone who has their finger firmly on the pulse of digital and PR developments, as well as popular culture.
So basically we want talented, organised and motivated account managers or account directors to work across a range of enviable high street brands in exciting PR roles.
We are looking for some experienced public relations people to work in a growing fun team of 18 in Leeds that has been winning awards for the last nine years. This exciting new role has been created due to our rapid growth and winning of new business, it includes several well known high street consumer brands as well as some interesting B2B clients.
This lucky candidate will be responsible for managing excellent day-to-day client work, generating high quality traditional and social media coverage, and building relationships with clients and the media. An integral part of the team, you need to be passionate about the media agenda, knowing what makes a great story and delivering innovative and creative campaigns that have a commercial impact for clients. We are looking for someone who enjoys working in a fast paced environment and thrives on getting results.
