Your new company
I am working exclusively with Sony Europe, a multinational corporation whose diversified business includes consumer and professional electronics, gaming, entertainment, and financial services. You will be working within Sony to support the UK PR Manager across all PR functions. Due to a high workload, the job of PR Executive is available on an initial 12 month contract.

Your new role
As a UK PR Executive, you will be supporting the PR Manager across all PR functions including the day-to-day running of the UK Press office and PR campaigns. You will support various business areas across Digital Imaging, TV and Video & Sound. Due to the large workload there's a possibility of taking on responsibility for one of these categories exclusively. You will develop written materials such as press releases, plans and copy calls and build an understanding of consumer insights and target audiences. You will be required to take a leading role in reporting of both Press Office & PR campaigns & help organise the press trips & events. You will also be working closely with agencies and take on administrative tasks where necessary.

What you'll need to succeed
You will have either studied or have experience within PR that could include either agency or in-house. You will have to fully commit and have a level of flexibility as this role involves occasional travel to London & overseas and you will be prepared to become available if any issues, crises or any breaking news arises. You will need strong planning & organisational skills and will quickly learn how to prioritise your busy schedule. You will demonstrate excellent verbal and written skills and be a confident speaker who can handle high pressure situations like dealing with the press.

What you'll get in return
You will receive a rate of £22,000 - £26,000 per year, depending on experience. As a UK PR Executive on an initial one year contract, this will be a great opportunity to gain valuable experience in a fast paced diversified business.
