Are you an experienced communicator with a passion for the written word and a good sense of what makes an interesting story? Do you enjoy working as part of a team while taking responsibility for your own activities?
Maxim, one of the leading PR, marketing and communications agencies in the South East, is looking for an account manager.
Based in Tunbridge Wells and working with clients across Kent, Essex, Surrey, Sussex, London and beyond, we are a small team with big connections.
In this our 25th year we’re looking for someone to join us as we take on new clients and continue to develop current projects. We work with a range of organisations including charities, education, healthcare, leisure, property, renewables, and transport, as well as organising and hosting the annual Kent Press and Broadcast Awards.
As a team our backgrounds include local and national journalism, local government, hospitality, education and previous public relations roles. We’re looking for the right person to join us – and occasionally help out with the tea round.
The work is varied, challenging and constantly evolving. One day you could be drafting a press release, the next organising an event for 100 people, drafting an award nomination, managing a public exhibition, planning an entire marketing campaign, or responding to a media enquiry. We work together or individually and you will be tasked with booking photographers, liaising with designers and managing any other external services as required.
You’ll be organised, positive, and willing to work with a range of clients, managing accounts, supporting and/or taking the lead on strategic planning. A blank page doesn’t faze you and the occasional last-minute deadline is a challenge rather than a disaster. You’ll take pride in your work and pay attention to detail. An interest in social media and digital marketing will also be welcome.
The role comes with responsibility for your clients and a willingness to help out with all aspects of the business when required – we pull together as a team to get the job done.
This is a full-time role with some flexibility to hours. Benefits include 25 days’ leave plus bank holidays; annual discretionary bonus; supportive colleagues and the option to join in a friendly social scene. The salary offered is £28,000 to £35,000, depending on experience.
If you think this is the role for you, please email Philip Jones – firstname.lastname@example.org – with your CV and a covering note to say why you’d like to join our team. The closing date is Thursday, 19th March.
