PR Executive – Slough Business Support Centre

Are you passionate about comms? Is your dream job a hands-on PR role that drives the reputation of a leading foodservice business?

You would be part of a creative, cohesive Corporate Marketing team responsible for protecting and promoting our reputation as the best foodservice provider through external communications.

We are looking for someone who possesses the right blend of passion, experience and skill to plan and execute a communications strategy that aligns with our business’ strategic priorities, ensure the right messages and stories are told on the right platforms, at the right times, to the right audiences, and who can help to build a strong brand that really connects with customers and employees.

This role has a great opportunity to work with stakeholders at all levels and across many teams in our business, with key editors and journalists right across the foodservice industry and of course to work hand-in-glove with our PR agency.

You will be managing our PR agency day to day on press office, local PR, as well as supporting PR campaigns, events and seasonal launches to the media. You’ll help to build our reputation through management of speaker plan, an awards plan as well as tracking our progress on coverage and against campaign KPIs. You’ll need to build great relationships with trade journalists and editors, and across our business to find stories that bring to life our proposition.

What do you need to be successful?

This role will require you to use your creative flair, great communication, sound judgment and an eye for detail. You’ll need to have the ability to manage projects, think on your feet, prioritise and multi-task. Writing is a key element of this role, and the ability to review and to create compelling and concise content for press releases, features and opinion pieces.

If you want to take real ownership, make your own mark and want your opportunity to shine in an exciting, challenging and inspiring and foodie industry then get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you.

Just a few extra things… 1 to 2 years’ experience in PR, a degree in marketing communications or similar subject, a full driving license and you’ll need to be passionate about food. You must also be eligible to work in the UK.
