The past few months has seen internal promotions, growing retainers, and awesome new business at EAST VILLAGE., which means that we’re now on the lookout for an Account Executive/Senior Account Executive to join #TeamEV. If you’ve been living and breathing the ‘PR agency life’ for the past 1-2 years and you’re ready for the next step, come and join our small, but perfectly, formed team.
Based on Colmore Row, in the heart of Birmingham, we’re an agency that’s all about team spirit; creating a culture where every member of #TeamEV helps drive the strategy and creativity of what we deliver day in, day out for clients.
We’re a team of storytellers… we thrive on shaping the narratives of people, products and places. Specialising in PR, marketing and events, we spend every day putting pen to paper for retail, property and hospitality brands… and we continue to build the business around the passions and expertise of the team.
Sound like the next career step for you?
As #TeamEV’s new (Senior) Account Exec, you’ll hit the ground running from day one. Working on a range of exciting clients, your key responsibilities will include:
>>> Writing engaging copy that tells our clients’ stories via press releases, comment pieces, thought-leadership articles, blogs, social content, and everything in between
>>> Never giving up on securing the best possible regional, national (and sometimes even international) media coverage; picking up the phone and selling in to press
>>> Bringing your existing journalist, blogger and influencer relationships with you, and continuing to build your “little black book”
>>> Organising and managing events; from product launches and openings, through to retail activations and large-scale public events
>>> Managing social media accounts for clients, including content creation, community management, influencer engagement, and strategies for building engagement and reach
>>> Being an integral part of client account management; working alongside our Account Managers and Account Director to drive comms strategies forward whilst also acting as a main point of contact, on-hand with advice and support where needed
>>> Showcasing the value that we provide clients, both awareness and ROI, through regular updates and evaluations
>>> Having a thirst for delivering the best, and most innovative, ideas; keeping on top of trends and best practice across the PR and digital industries, sharing this with the team, and proactively driving new client activity
>>> Helping build EAST VILLAGE.’s client list by taking part in new business brainstorms, researching ideas for pitches and proposals, and suggesting brands for us to work with
We’re looking for someone who has at least 1-2 years’ agency experience; passionate about a career in PR and being in an agency that’s focused on growth. It goes without saying, but the skillset of our new (Senior) Account Executive should include:
>>> A real passion for PR, marketing and events
>>> Excellent communications skills, with a creative mind and a desire to become a well-known face of the agency
>>> A sound knowledge of the media landscape, and how best to work with journalists and bloggers
>>> Story sell-ins… not being afraid to pick up the phone and secure that press coverage
>>> A curious mind, always willing to ask questions and come up with ideas
>>> A true team player; bringing people together and encouraging everyone to deliver the best they can
