A pivotal role with a renowned brand, your focus will be on developing corporate affairs programmes that maintain and enhance the brand across the UK. With agency support and managing one other, you’ll lead on media relations, issues management, community affairs and CSR while working closely with peers in government relations and internal communications to develop PR programmes that engage with all stakeholders, the public, policy makers, NGOs and industry included.
Providing PR counsel to colleagues across the business, identifying potential risks and managing response in crisis situations, as well as building relations with external opinion formers, you’ll demonstrate keen judgment and strong stakeholder management and influencing skills.
Experience gained in corporate PR, ideally in a consumer facing business, is essential and with a primary expertise in media relations, you’ll be well placed to work with colleagues to develop positive stories and maximise agency output. Budget and team management experience is a must.
