September 02, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Media News
Due to a number of significant recent account wins, Punch Communications is on the lookout for two or more dynamic new additions to the team. Punch is a boutique PR agency with the skill set and client base of a global agency, yet which is based in the East Midlands. Clients range from Consumer to B2B - spanning travel, IT, telecoms, food & drink, FMCG, financial services, marketing, construction and sports, amongst others.

Alongside traditional PR techniques, Punch is a strong advocate of using the latest tools and technologies to promote clients and has developed a leading-edge suite of services, including a sophisticated online PR function.

A considerable marketing effort is currently underway and the management is looking to grow the team, rapidly. The roles are flexible and dependent upon the individuals.

Account Executive: Some Marketing/PR experience is a pre-requisite, preferably in an agency environment. The candidate must be extremely enthusiastic, creative, attentive to detail and driven to succeed. The role requires a highly presentable individual that is able to write confidently and has an excellent phone manner. This role will confer significant responsibility on the successful candidate, offering an excellent opportunity for personal development and career progression.

Account Manager: In addition to the above requirements, this candidate will currently be a superb Account Executive or highly competent Account Manager with several years of relevant experience in a PR role. The candidate will require the capacity to competently handle clients and journalists and the ability to work quickly to deadlines whilst under pressure.

Account Director: In addition to the above requirements, an experienced professional that is able to identify, win and manage business alongside the existing team. This candidate will work closely with the senior management and potentially influence the future direction of the business.

Given that Punch is currently small yet growing fast, all candidates will need to grow with the business and be willing to invest their energies into both global brands and start up businesses alike. A willingness to become an integral part of the team and to leave one's personal ego at home is essential.

Given the relative lack of PR roles in the Midlands, we think this is a terrific opportunity and have already received significant interest. However, we're growing quickly and remain on the lookout - so if you know of anyone that may be appropriate and interested, please do drop us a line at working@punchcomms.com or contact Pete Goold on 01858 545959 or 07830 236824.
