PR and Comms Manager

We’re looking for a talented PR and comms manager to help supercharge the company’s growing media profile.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to help shape the perception of a brand at the cutting edge of fintech innovation.

The perfect role for someone with proven media relations skills, two to three years of agency or relevant in-house experience under their belt, who’s looking to grow with a fast-growing fintech.

The role….

  • You will be the main media contact, building strong relationships with relevant journalists within key target markets – namely financial advice and investment trades, and fintech and technology publications
  • Plan and manage a proactive PR calendar, combining regular newsflow (product releases, client wins, corporate updates and milestones etc) and semi-regular, impactful thought leadership campaigns.
  • Stay on top of current events within the market, with a view to securing regular reactive comment opportunities for leaders within the business
  • Create PR collateral (press releases, opinion editorials etc) as well as supporting the content team on creating other marketing content (for example blogs, whitepapers and award entries)
  • Help to brainstorm new content and campaigns that will help achieve cut-through and raise profile
  • Work with teams from around the business to uncover newsworthy content to feed into all PR activity

About you…..

  • You will be good at identifying the pertinent, interesting or insightful angles from within a sea of complexity
  • Great at building relationships: proven media relations skills, and a desire to connect with different teams in the business
  • An excellent communicator, with strong editorial skills, who enjoys crafting content
  • Passionate about technology, finance and the intersection of the two
  • Confident and driven, but also collaborative, kind and always eager to improve
  • Have a curious nature, eager to try new things and learn new skills
  • This is a hands-on role, without an agency or junior exec for support, so you’ll enjoy rolling your sleeves up and getting stuck in!
  • Comfortable with ambiguity. A genuine self-starter, you’ll enjoy thinking up and experimenting with new ideas
  • Excited about working in a rapidly growing fintech with a steep learning curve

Salary/benefits:

  • Competitive salary
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Exposure to the latest technology and an opportunity to help shape the future direction
  • 27 days holiday and a day off for your birthday
  • Pension & Life Assurance
