Along with media relations, you’ll be involved in the creation and delivery of powerful communications strategies, eye-catching design and print, social and digital media comms and other exciting aspects of integrated campaigns. You’ll also be encouraged to get involved in new business activity, contributing to hard-hitting, winning proposals and presenting at new business pitches.
