Account Manager – Hannah Burgess PR

  • Full Time

Website Hannah Burgess PR

Hannah Burgess PR (HBPR) is an automotive-focused, London-based PR consultancy firm born from a belief that retainers shouldn’t be relied upon by agencies. As such, the company works with its clients on projects; some that run for weeks or months, some that are quarter to quarter, and some that are being planned years in advance. It’s this anti-retainer ethos that HBPR believes makes its team more nimble, reactive, consistent, and hungry to promote its clients through thoughtful communications activities, and key characteristics it’s looking in a lead Account Manager.

The agency is more concerned with aptitude, attitude and allowing for the right candidate to grow rather than being focused on a person’s education or qualifications. However, HBPR is first and foremost looking for the below tasks to be undertaken in the role:

– Client liaison and leading and initiating client meetings, catch ups and project reviews

– Working and communicating within a team, communicating, delegating and managing tasks given to the Junior PR Manager, as well as updating the agency’s founder on critical client updates
