Job Description

Exciting opportunity for someone passionate about drinks, and looking to join a rapid growth agency.

This specialist drinks PR agency, founded three years ago by an expert in the industry, already has some amazing clients already, including both global and start-up spirits brands and a luxury, London-based bar. They work across very integrated campaigns, giving you a chance to experience traditional PR but also events, social / digital marketing and trade advocacy work.

They’ve only been established for a very short period of time but are expanding quickly - now is a brilliant time to join them. 

The Senior Account Executive role

As a Senior Account Executive, you will be responsible for implementing creative, integrated campaigns for a variety of drinks and hospitality clients. Your role will involve liaising with key journalists and influencers (including some well known bar tenders and mixologists), creating engaging, multi-channel content, attending industry events and supporting the agency's growth.

The new Senior Account Executive will need PR experience at Account Executive / Senior Account Executive level (or in house equivalent), ideally within the drinks or hospitality industry. You must have experience gaining coverage across both consumer and trade media and excellent writing skills. 

Benefits include:

  • Flexible working, with a focus on staff well-being – you can work from home once or twice per week
  • Budget for a team social at a new bar each month
  • 'Headspace’ app for everyone
  • Pet-friendly offices
  • 1 late start per week to go to the gym (after one year’s service)
  • Lots of training and coaching opportunities including WSET training
  • Opportunity to get promoted quicker than industry standard

Salary is circa £27k.

They’re looking for ambitious candidates, that want to work in a business where they’re able to forge their own career paths due to the number of opportunities and experiences available to them that wouldn't be found in a big agency. Drinks experience isn’t essential, but a passion and interest in the industry is!
