PR Executive – Highbrow PR Firm specialising in Alternative Investment - London - West End

Ref: 603 Date Posted: Wednesday 15 Nov 2017

If you are looking for challenging work and have an equal passion for communications and the investment sector this could be the firm for you.

Founded at the tail end of the financial crisis, this consultancy was designed to provide the specialist understanding and expertise required to promote and defend clients’ interests in a world where investment firms are under greater scrutiny than ever. Clients range from single-strategy start-ups or spin-outs to global, multi-platform asset managers.

The firm’s approach is like that of a management consultancy. Junior team members act as vital support to the senior advisers and it is an intellectually rigorous environment, where rapid progression is possible for those who simply get stuck in and are willing to prove themselves. Client exposure can happen more quickly than in other industries and the environment is far more meritocratic. The hours can be long, so stamina is a must! 

The team is formed of individuals from different backgrounds, all sharing a passion for complex communications challenges.

Responsibilities include:

  • Media monitoring, press reviews and reports
  • New business research, presentation formulation
  • Influencer mapping
  • Journalist and blogger relations, daily interaction and relationship building
  • Coordinating client and journalists events and meetings
  • Copy writing, such as press releases
