Account Executive (Technology Public Relations)
Are you a natural communicator who is interested in technology? Are you also an excellent writer and/or organiser? Do you want to work in a fun and challenging environment where you can constantly learn new skills? Then the chances are you’ll thrive in a career in PR!
Public Relations consultants manage their clients’ reputation, as well as their relationships with their key audiences. They do this in a huge variety of ways.
As a Public Relations Consultant you’ll communicate with the public on your clients’ behalf through the traditional media, bloggers, social media, directly at tradeshows, and more. One moment you’ll find yourself brainstorming the next big campaign and inputting creative ideas; the next you’ll find yourself writing articles or press releases, speaking to the media to arrange interviews, or managing their social presence.
