This bright, hard-working candidate with a strong academic background should be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of and, interest in, the financial market and the role PR plays in it. A strong command of English, both written and spoken, is essential, as is a very good attention to detail. Candidates should show a keen interest in communications and be looking to develop their knowledge of the industry.
A proactive and flexible approach to work is essential as the position will sometimes entail long hours. We need someone who is very well organised, driven, shows initiative and is able to work to tight deadlines. The person should also have the ability to deal with balancing several ongoing projects at once.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone seeking to further their career in public relations. The successful candidate will have considerable scope to learn, receive mentoring and support and grow professionally in a large, integrated and well-respected agency with an established international network of offices.
Although not essential, someone who is available to start immediately would be a bonus.
- Experience of financial PR (minimum 1 year)
- Excellent written and spoken communication skills
- Interest in current events and knowledge of the City and wider business community
- Good interpersonal skills and experience of working in a team
