Job Description

Keen to make the move to Senior Account Manager? Want to work for a blossoming company with a fresh take on the world of PR and communications?

Bluestripe Group is looking for an experienced B2B PR account manager who is ready to take a step up to SAM, ideally with a background in the media, technology and advertising markets.

Who are we?

Based in the heart of Soho, Bluestripe Group is a pioneering B2B PR and marketing business, combining PR, content and media services for B2B clients in the media and technology sectors. The group encompasses a PR agency, a content studio and a digital publishing and events business, creating truly integrated campaigns that deliver tangible results for clients.

Bluestripe works with clients who pride themselves on being creative, innovative and agile in what can be a noisy marketplace. The company works with major brands including News UK, Snap, Xandr and Teads as well as operating its own successful media brands including New Digital Age.

The Role

You're at the centre of the PR client account team. By forming strong relationships with clients and your Bluestripe colleagues, you will support clients to meet their key business strategies. You will contribute to the development of their PR campaigns and be active in managing and reporting on their successful completion.

Clients will look to you for guidance, management and insights with regards to public relations, social media and digital marketing initiatives.

Additionally, you will be expected to mentor and develop others across the Account Exec team.

Why Bluestripe?

Bluestripe is an established agency business. We not only doubled the size of our team in 2020, we also doubled our revenue, growing existing accounts and winning new clients such as NewsUK during the pandemic.

Bluestripe offers a diverse, flexible, fun and supportive workplace where team members can grow their skills and careers in an entrepreneurial and exciting environment. We're small enough for your voice to be heard and for you to make an impact on the business but big enough for you to be involved in some significant client campaigns.

The business isn't siloed in a traditional sense, meaning that staff members can embrace the opportunity to develop new skills and deploy new approaches for clients, helping them to grow their careers and prepare themselves for the future of B2B communications.

Bluestripe has a mission to change the face of B2B communications, giving our team members the opportunity to work at the cutting edge of innovation in this space

Who are you?

Firstly, you're someone who understands the PR and Communications industry; with 4+ years' experience of in-house or agency B2B PR in relevant sectors.

You're a project manager, problem solver, marketeer, multitasker, pedant, writer, editor, broadcaster, mentor and organiser. You love engaging with people and you showcase empathy whether they're a client with a challenge at 4pm on a Friday, a journalist looking for stats on a deadline, or a colleague who is a bit down at 9am on a wet Monday morning!

Above all, you're someone who wants to make a difference!

The Package

We offer competitive industry salaries and for this role the range is from £35,000 - £45,000 depending on experience.

Our benefits package is generous, offering 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, your birthday off and time off over Christmas, private healthcare, a contributory pension scheme, snap bonuses, recruitment bonuses and new business bonuses, enhanced training and in-office snacks, fruit, amazing coffee and regular socials. We are also trialling a flexi-working structure following the covid crisis, so you won't need to be in the office five days a week.

The Vibe

We have fantastic offices in the heart of media Soho, our founders are well known in the industry and we have a wide range of talent and experience across the company, from first-jobbers through to industry veterans. The vibe is very much supportive, innovative, hard-working and fun, with employees saying they feel heard, that they make a difference, that they feel supported and happy.

If you are a self-starter, are brimming full of ideas and are keen to offer clients the best service you can, you would fit in well with the Bluestripe team!
