Our client is a specialist crisis PR agency with purpose in its DNA, supporting clients across NGO, charity, education and individuals through every imaginable crisis.
Team members come from a diverse background throughout the UK media landscape, and they thrive when they are helping clients in dealing with sensitive and emotive matters. The good news is that this team is growing, so a new Junior Account Manager role has been created
The Junior Account Manager will bring the skills and ambition to organise, promote and monitor the agency's education client outreach strategy.
