Citypress, an award-winning integrated PR agency with offices in Manchester, London, Edinburgh and Birmingham, is looking for a planner with 3-5 years experience, to join our expanding Research and Insight team in Manchester.
The role will involve leading on research projects for some of the agency’s key B2B and consumer clients, which include Coca Cola, British Gas, Lloyds Bank and Aldi.
As one of the UK’s fastest-growing PR agencies, we are looking for a planner who is able to be client-facing from day one, with the ability to confidently and credibly advise senior clients and internal teams. A strong understanding of both qualitative and quantitative research methods is a must. Candidates should also have excellent organisation, writing and brief-writing skills and the ability to curate information in a way that is easy to digest.
Our ideal candidate will be comfortable working independently or collaborating as part of a team and will support the development of junior colleagues. They must be both creative and proactive in their approach to client work with strong problem solving skills and a naturally inquisitive nature.
Agency experience is preferred but we will consider candidates from a variety of backgrounds including media, advertising, marketing and PR.
In February, Citypress was recognised as one of the best employers in the PR industry after landing a PRWeek Best Places to Work Award. Our approach is entrepreneurial, and we reward those who make a significant contribution to the development of the agency. Performance related incentives are available along with industry-leading career development and training opportunities.
This role will suit someone who is looking to develop and progress within one of the fastest-growing independent agencies in the UK.
We will consider applications from candidates who want to work 3-4 days a week on a job share basis.
