Graduate Consumer PR Executive

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for anyone looking to break into the world of consumer PR. Working across our enviable consumer portfolio of famous brands, you’ll be the first point of contact for journalists as you deliver a busy press office and campaigns on a national and regional scale. Writing must be a passion; in addition to being grammatically perfect, it should also be overflowing with imagination. Creativity is also a pre-requisite – you’ll be brimming with ideas of ways to deliver media coverage that will delight your clients. Finally, confidence and tenacity are key; you’ll be confident in speaking to clients and journalists alike, and won’t stop selling-in until you’ve achieved the coverage you desired!

Start date: ASAP

Graduate Social Media Analyst (x2)

If you’ve got an analytical mind and are curious to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes of the social media platforms, this could be the role for you. We are searching for two Graduate Social Media Analysts – one to support our consumer team, working predominantly across Facebook and Instagram, and a second to work with our B2B team, specialising in LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. You’ll be responsible for the performance of content across the platforms. We’ll coach you on the entire process; from choosing the right ad format to scheduling content; split-testing creatives to optimising ads; managing communities and responding to followers, through to producing learnings and recommendations for teams and clients to ensure the success of future content and campaigns.

You’ll have excellent attention to detail, thrive working under pressure and, above all, be curious about the results you achieve and driven to find ways to continuously improve them.

Start date: ASAP

WPR Marketing Manager 

We’re looking for a dedicated all-rounder who will make WPR as famous as we make our clients! From our website to our social feeds, our blogs to our e-newsletters, you’ll be responsible for all of our outbound comms. Writing will be your passion, with a fastidious attention to detail, but you’ll also understand how to optimise copy for search, working with our SEO team to ensure we rank well for a long list of keywords. Above all, you will understand what makes WPR special and ensure that shines through in all that you do.

Start date: ASAP

Creative / Conceptual Copywriter

If words are your craft and writing is your passion, this could be the perfect next career step for you. We’re looking for a creative copywriter to join our consumer social media team. You’ll excel at producing witty, captivating copy, which will stop people mid-scroll and generate likes, comment and shares. Able to quickly switch styles depending on client or sector, your copy will ensure our clients stand out from the competition and help them to communicate their key messages in a relatable, engaging way. Creativity, passion and an innate understanding of grammar are all must-haves. Minimum two years’ experience.

Start date: ASAP

B2B Social Media Manager

Do you know how to use LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to achieve business objectives for your clients? Do you get a buzz from getting your head around complex, technical information? Are you driven by social media trends and how to apply them to get the best out of your content? If you can answer yes to these questions, you could be our next B2B Social Media Manager. As the main point of contact for your clients, you’ll be able to produce short proposals to answer simple briefs, provide consultancy to ensure business objectives are met and ensure all work produced is of the highest standard.

We believe in specialists over generalists, so you’ll either excel in creating compelling content, or in optimising and analysing ads. In turn, we’ll support you with a team with complementary skills. This is an exciting opportunity to join the fastest-growing team within WPR right now – so what are you waiting for?!

Start date: ASAP

SEO Manager / Senior SEO Manager

Due to client demand, we are looking for an SEO Manager / Senior SEO Manager to expand our service offering. Working across existing clients and new business pitches, you’ll partner with the wider WPR team to construct integrated solutions which meet – and exceed – our clients’ business objectives.
