Media Relations and PR Executive

We’re looking for an experienced Media Relations and PR Executive to join our team in Leeds. The quality of content we produce means our superb PR campaigns are naturally being picked up by journalists of national newspapers, as well as viral sites, online bloggers and influencers. To maximise the reach and results we achieve for our clients, our PR team also proactively push our content out. There’s a real buzz in the office as we watch the volume of coverage and social engagement go up. Not everyone in this team comes from a Digital or PR background: in fact we offer all the specialist and industry-leading training you need.

As a Sunday Times Top 100 employer, we understand the importance of working in an environment you’ll thrive in. Our current team love:

  • Research – understanding what is topical and interesting for different online audiences
  • Being part of the brainstorm process – influencing content pieces before they are created
  • Advising colleagues on how to achieve the best coverage for our content
  • Building relationships with media contacts and pitching ideas
  • Collaborating with journalists and online influencers who are interested in our content
  • Working to targets – they enjoy healthy competition and everyone wants to achieve maximum exposure for their clients

What you can expect in return

When a campaign goes live, it’s really exciting. You can read honest and open reviews about Search Laboratory on www.Glassdoor.co.uk, and our Facebook page will give you a really good idea about what it’s like to work at the Lab. You’ll see we’re a sociable bunch, and we like to reward the team well. Our benefits include:

  • Free gym membership
  • Free fruit
  • Healthcare Benefits
  • Company Pension
  • Free Drink Fridays in our games room
  • Company socials and much more
