Have a thirst for news? Some PR experience? This is your chance to work with some of the brightest brains in the industry...
Missive is an award-winning technology PR and marketing communications consultancy. We were named PRCA Workplace Champion 2021 and PRCA Consultancy of the Year 2020. Missive was founded with the sole aim of delivering a positive impact both to our clients and to the lives of our staff.
We are currently experiencing rapid growth in our client portfolio, which boasts globally renowned brands such as RingCentral, Santander, Workday and Virgin Media O2, as well as some of the most exciting fast growth brands including EML Nuapay, Quantum Metric, TripActions and Vyne.
As a result, we are looking for a dynamic junior consultant / consultant (junior account exec or account exec equivalent) to join our team. We are excited to offer the chance to work in a progressive, fun culture with supercharged career development and inspiring clients.
The successful candidate will ideally have a minimum of 6 months’ PR experience.
Missive is passionate about delivering genuine business outcomes for technology brands using strategic communications. We are proud to be able to say that our clients have gained customers, new investment, high-calibre talent, external accreditation and staff retention – all as a result of our work.
Our team of communications experts includes some of the brightest brains in the industry, with collective experience spanning every corner of corporate tech PR (with a dash of sales and social media to boot).
Each and every member of the team works with autonomy, armed with the ability to explore and experiment to drive results both for our clients and for Missive as a whole. We are fortunate to have a truly fun and dynamic culture which means that, prior to the pandemic, our office was busy despite our leading working from home policy.
