The ideal candidate will be; confident on the phone, intelligent, switched-on, aware of what is going on in the world, well-read, well-watched, digitally connected and quick-to-learn. It goes without saying that they will have great attention to detail, lots of ideas and be highly-driven. They will also be a proactive self-starter and ambitious to achieve individually and also working as part of a team.

The successful candidate will benefit from a three month structured training scheme, aptly named ‘GetMashed’. This consists of specific learning modules – covering all of the essentials for a long and successful career in PR as a media publicist.  Each module combines hands-on tasks, real work projects, dedicated training, learning workshops and ongoing assessment. 

Each and every step of the way you will know how you are doing and we will work with you to ensure you develop the skills needed for your career with us.  After completion of our exciting, innovative and challenging trainee scheme you will attain the title of Publicist and a contracted salary rise to £19,000pa.
