The largest commercial publisher in the UK has an opening for a Publicist to work on their  brand-new social media site launches. You’ll be joining an ambitious, experienced yet experimental line-up right at the start of this new venture. Ideally, you’ll have worked for a consumer agency, or in an in-house team. Experience publicising new launches would be ideal and working with celebrity talent would be a bonus. 

Could this be you?

  • Proactive and confident
  • Excellent writing skills, heaps of creativity and social media savvy
  • The ability to work independently to generate your own ideas, from news stories to stunts
  • An innate sense of what will land coverage

Key responsibilities:

  • To make their brands famous – whether via stunts, broadcast news generation, or product placement
  • To secure celebrity spokespeople and ambassadors when relevant, liaising with agents and managers
  • Work closely with key spokespeople to agree talking points for interviews and events
  • Monitor the media and circulate relevant coverage to internal stakeholders
  • Work with the wider niche team on marketing campaigns, supporting with messaging and copywriting
  • Contribute to the social channels for the new brands 
  • Work closely with the wider comms team, helping to shape how the company talks about  their new launches to advertising partners and the wider business world
