CMS Strategic, a London-based PR agency, provides media and government relations to companies within the defence, aerospace and security industries and has clients in the energy services and civil aviation sectors. An opportunity is now available for an Account Executive to join the team.

Working as part of the CMS team, the successful candidate must be able to manage day-to-day PR activity across several existing accounts. Key responsibilities for this role will include:

  • Researching and securing relevant forward feature opportunities;
  • Researching and developing stories for pitching to appropriate media;
  • Distributing high quality copy for press releases, feature articles, white papers, company newsletters/magazines, advertorials and publicity material to target media;

Strong writing, communication, research, administration, and organisational skills are essential, as is attention detail, as is the ability to work on a variety of projects and to tight deadlines.
