PR Executive

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced PR Executive at Redmayne Bentley, one of the UK’s largest independent stockbroking and investment management firms. The role is based at the firm’s Leeds Head Office, located in the heart of the city’s financial district, only a few minutes’ walk from Leeds train station.

Working closely with the firm’s board members, media commentators and marketing team you will use your PR experience and expertise to raise the firm’s profile; to support its continued growth; and to ensure that it continues to be highly respected in the market.

You will be responsible for the firm’s press enquiries and you will proactively identify opportunities to generate positive media coverage across digital, print and broadcast media to support the firm’s business goals. You’ll manage content and strategy for corporate social media channels such as Twitter, LinkedIn and will undertake risk management, including providing senior management with advice on risk and/or crisis management if required.

You will create editorial ideas, press releases, case studies, articles and digital content, alongside identifying, developing and maintaining relationships with key journalists in national, trade, online and broadcast media.

You will coordinate, brief and prepare the firm’s media commentators for written comment, telephone and broadcast interviews. In addition, you will monitor, evaluate and report all media coverage.

What you will bring to the team
As the successful candidate you will be confident, energetic and enthusiastic, have strong creative, writing and organisation skills, be inquisitive, enjoy speaking to the media with the ability to identify opportunities that will appeal to journalists.  You’ll have the ability to work to tight deadlines and cope positively with time pressure. You’ll have the ability to work as part of a team, but also be able to self-motivate and take ownership of individual projects and tasks.

Knowledge and experience in financial services is desirable, however you will need to be self-sufficient in following industry news, be a quick learner and have the ability to digest and understand complex subjects.

Our Firm’s Vision is to be the most trusted independent provider of personal investment services. Our Mission is to provide excellent personal investment services that enhance clients’ wealth, and our values of Excellence, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork reflect this and are at the heart of all we do. If these values and behaviours resonate with you and you would like to pursue a career at an award-winning firm, then we would love to hear from you.

Benefits
In return, we offer a competitive reward packaged including 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays (increasing with service), a discretionary bonus scheme, contributory pension, private medical care and travel loans.
