Due to recent client wins, this award winning Manchester PR agency is looking to appoint a new Junior PR Account Manager or PR Account Manager.


They are looking for a confident and articulate person with a passion for PR who will relish the chance to join the team as an account manager working across a range of B2B accounts in the built environment, food and drink and tech sectors.
