Senior PR Executive - Perm opportunity - Peterborough or London - Hybrid/Remote working options

Marketing is excited to be working in partnership with The Institute of Export & International Trade who are based in Peterborough. Brexit has had a really positive impact on their organisation and in the last year they have grown considerably which is why they are looking for a Senior PR Executive to join their team and be based in either their Peterborough or London office which they will be opening in the summer.

The Institute of Export & International Trade (IoE&IT) is the professional membership body representing and supporting the interests of everyone involved in importing, exporting and international trade. Established more than 85 years ago, the Institute is the leading association of exporters and importers. They provide education and training to professionalise the UK's international traders.

The Senior PR Executive will be able to display enthusiasm, creativity, resourcefulness with a meticulous eye for detail and an understanding of policy formulation probably gained through experience of working in a policy focused environment.

The candidate:

They are seeking candidates with the following skills and experience:

* Experience to make a significant contribution to the development and delivery of a proactive, nimble and effective Communications Strategy
* Strong verbal and written communications skills in all channels, formulating and tailoring persuasive messages quickly and incisively to enhance IoE&IT's share of voice
* Strong experience of developing and communicating key messages to multiple audiences and stakeholder groups, delivering increased visibility/recognition and impact

Role requirements:

* Work with a range of internal and external stakeholders to translate the Institute's thinking into appropriate, timely and proactive external communications through the media and other communications channels, including social media where appropriate
* Identify PR opportunities and implement an integrated communications strategy to raise the Institute's profile and to promote the work and contribution made to the UK (and beyond) by individuals and companies involved in export, import and international trade
* Building and maintaining a relevant database of media contacts
* Support the Public Affairs Director in building the IoE&IT's relationships with key UK and international bodies, including politicians and advisers, senior officials, government departments, regulators, relevant professional and industry associations and other opinion-formers
* Work collaboratively with all areas of the business to ensure that it maximises opportunities across the full range of its products and services

The IOE&IT is based in Peterborough. While current restrictions on travel and meeting remain in place, they expect this role can largely be carried out remotely, although (when regulations allow) the successful candidate should anticipate spending around a few days a week in either Peterborough or London depending on your location and for team meetings and other necessary face-to-face commitments. All travel expenses will be covered.

The benefits:

In return they are offering a salary of £30,000 to £35,000 (DOE). A bonus based on the achievement of corporate and individual targets, and other benefits including pension scheme membership and private medical cover, free parking onsite in Peterborough and 25 days holiday plus bank holidays.
