Part Time

PR Account Director (fixed term maternity leave contract)


We’re a young and rapidly growing communications agency based in Bristol. We have clients in Bristol, London and beyond across a range of sectors – from the UK’s leading specialist auctioneers of sports memorabilia to companies that have grown out of the thriving tech scene at Bristol University, from start-ups to businesses trading globally. 

We’re different. We offer our clients a combination of high-level strategic consultancy coupled with on-the-ground agency delivery. We also bring a unique combination of communications, commercial and digital understanding. Our clients choose to work with us because of our expertise and experience and stay with us because we work as an extension to their internal team and focus on the deliverables that make the biggest difference to their business (and because of who we are as people and how we work).

What we’re looking for

As we continue to grow, we’re looking for a driven and experienced PR Account Director (fixed term maternity leave contract). Whilst you’ll be working with a wider team of communications and digital marketing experts delivering work that spans multiple disciplines, your specialism will be leading the charge on our PR activity. If you work in a pure PR role at the moment, or it’s a significant part of what you do, this could be the opportunity for you. 

In this role, you’ll be taking the lead on relationships with clients and be responsible for PR and comms strategy, but be happy to lead the team and get your hands dirty on everything from press releases to sell-ins too. We’re looking for someone that has a proven track record in PR and copywriting, can juggle multiple projects at different stages, and keep a steady stream of media coverage coming in. 

You’ll have:

  • Senior level experience working within a PR agency, or in-house PR role
  • Understanding of the bigger picture and the strategic role PR plays to meet commercial objectives 
  • Proven ability to develop PR strategies that land coverage across all types of media – we want to hear about your best campaigns and how they delivered on client goals
  • Long-standing track record of pitching to national and industry specific media and deep expertise in the media landscape, including active relationships with key journalists
  • Ability to continuously generate ‘new’ news opportunities, confidence to identify PR opportunities for clients, and to push back when needed on topics that won’t land 
  • Top notch copywriting skills and attention to detail – there’s never a typo on your watch
  • Excellent client services skills and an ability to preempt issues before they happen
  • Ability to lead a team, share your knowledge and help juniors develop their expertise 
  • An honest, straight talking personality – we make mistakes, celebrate the wins together and acknowledge when things don’t quite go to plan
  • A willingness to adapt when needs be – we’re a small team and we all pitch in to help each other out
  • A prolific organiser – we are a busy agency, so the ability to juggle and prioritise is a must

What we can offer you

Culture is extremely important to us. We love what we do, but we also understand you have a life outside of work.  As well as a role that you can truly make your own, in a fast-growing agency, we offer:

  • Flexibility with working from home – we were doing it long before it was cool
  • Great working environment ​- our office is in the heart of Bristol, (easy walking distance from Temple Meads and the city centre) and part of a buzzing community of startups
  • Flexible working hours – ​it’s about getting the job done and not about clocking in
    and out
  • A holiday policy that gives you time to travel – ​30 days per year (pro rata)
  • Four reset days per year for your mental health and overall wellbeing – for when life throws a curve-ball
  • The other stuff​ – all bank holidays off, team socials, great coffee and everything else you’d expect

Think we’re the right fit?

That’s great, get in touch!
