  • Working effectively and collaboratively with Account Managers and colleagues across the business to ensure campaigns run smoothly, proactively communicating updates to both Account Managers and your line manager, as well as answering queries promptly.
  • Staying up-to-date with the latest industry news and trends and communicating this with colleagues and clients.
  • Producing insights for the Evolved Search blog.

  • Creating and delivering campaigns from start to finish, securing exceptional coverage and results for clients.
  • Providing digital PR support with an understanding of the latest best practice, techniques, technology, and terminology.

We’re after someone who can slot into the team and take on the responsibility for a diverse range of client accounts.  

Other desirable skills and attributes include:

  • At least 2 years experience in Digital PR, or a similar discipline.
  • Demonstrable experience in overseeing campaigns that generate coverage and links in target areas for the client, which may include national, regional, and local publications.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of SEO best practices as relates to digital PR, as well as an understanding of digital PR’s value in the overall SEO strategy.
  • Exceptional content writing skills, with the ability to deliver all tasks associated with a campaign to a high standard, from ideation and research to copywriting, prospecting, outreach, and reporting.
  • Proactive and independent working where required.
  • Able to give, as well as receive, constructive criticism and provide feedback to team members, managers, and clients as it pertains to campaigns.
  • Excellent, persuasive verbal and written communication skills, both internally and in client-facing situations.

  • Able to confidently use tools such as Mailshake, Moz, Majestic, Ahrefs, SEMRush, SharedCount, and Google Analytics or equivalent software, to review performance and increase value to the client.
