Are you a whip-smart, creative, newshound? Do you know your way around an editor’s inbox, a news room and a producer’s content schedule? Do you get a thrill from landing stories in the press?
We are a guerrilla communications business focused on delivering reach for our clients and on our projects, working across tech, lifestyle, and environmental sectors.
We deliver PR, social media, SEO, branding and creative comms to a wealth of clients from individuals to start-ups and beyond. Each member of our team has skills across these areas but brings a unique specialism to each project. We’re a tight-knit team of passionate, outgoing creatives who love to collaborate just as much as we like to take ownership of each project.
Landing coverage in national broadcast press (think BBC, ITV, Al Jazeera), gaining pick up in international press (such as Forbes, Fortune et al), gaining column inches in specialist titles (looking at Computer Weekly, Smart Cities World, The Grocer et al) and features in UK stalwarts (The Guardian, Sunday Times, Good Housekeeping…) is the norm – and we want you to lead on this as we continue to grow.

We’d like you to drive our PR and media activities both on specific projects and on a speculative basis through specific campaigns (which you will contribute creatively to), product/report launches, announcements, promotion of key figureheads (personal PR), and commentary on trending issues. There is also the exciting element of working with online influencers and the digital world to create reach for our clients and their business.
Ideally, you have 3+ years experience of delivering beautiful PR and press activities, with evidence and results to prove it. You are also adept at handling multiple projects at any one time, and like being part of a small team where your work and impact counts.
