Our client Galibier is a rapidly growing name on the Manchester agency scene, and is already punching above its weight with some massive clients on its books and a pipeline to match.

The agency specialises in applying its big creativity and personality towards the technical, political and corporate end of the Public Relations market, working with clients in sectors including financial, education & skills, legal and technology.

You will be expected to take the initiative working with autonomy and imagination in a creative environment for this small company on a big stage. Above all else, key to this role is building and nurturing healthy and lasting client relationships. That means consistently managing and delivering on expectations – not reporting by spreadsheet.

• Presenting to clients in a clear, confident, understandable and professional manner.
• Close liaison with the client throughout each campaign.
• Conducting relevant market research and insight.
• Monitoring of progress and evaluation of results.
• Establishing credibility and being a friendly and professional ambassador for the PR agency at all times.
• Reporting directly to the Managing Director.

The ideal candidate will possess the following skills and qualities:

• A demonstrable understanding of the Public Relations function.
• Experience (desirable) gained in a similar fast-paced creative PR agency, in-house communications department or editorial role.
• Educated to degree level.
• Excellent written and verbal communications skills.
• Excellent media relations skills.
• The ability to work with confidence and to establish credibility with clients.
• An intelligent, research-driven approach.
• A creative and innovative brain. Not afraid to voice new ideas.
• Energy, positivity, ambition and enthusiasm.
• Excellent attention to detail.

What you’ll get:

• Salary of up to £21k depending on skills and experience.
• Performance bonus.
• A varied, fun working life with no two days the same.
• The chance to work alongside, and learn from, senior creative agency people.
• Generous holidays.
• Continuous training.
