Reference: BCHS874
Location: Sheffield/home
Salary: £25-32K

My client is a well-established and respected Public Affairs consultancy who has opportunity for an Account Manager to join their team of communication professionals to work on some of the most exciting renewable energy and major infrastructure projects across the UK.

 

They are looking for someone who is confident, positive, enthusiastic and hardworking. They want someone who likes making decisions enjoys making things happen and feels at ease when coordinating and planning different activities.

 

You will have proven experience of developing and managing client, stakeholder and media relationships. You will have a solid understanding of communication and consultation practice and approaches, as well as a keen interest in current affairs. You should have impeccable written and communication skills and be comfortable liaising face-to-face with members of the public and senior stakeholders.

 

Ideally you will have a sound background in communications and knowledge of the renewable energy and major infrastructure sectors. Knowledge of the planning system and the structures of local government would be helpful. You may have experience working for a comparable agency or in an in-house role in communications, stakeholder engagement or consultation, or you may have transferable skills gained through a career in planning, architecture or local government.

 

The Role

Your role will involve:

  • Working with our Directors to design stakeholder engagement, consultation and PR strategies and activities across a range of client projects, supporting property and regeneration schemes and/or policies.
  • Leading on the delivery of these strategies, including client liaison, stakeholder analysis, managing the production of communication materials (print and digital), consultation analysis and reporting
  • Managing and organising consultation events, exhibitions and stakeholder briefings
  • Developing and managing media relationships for clients both locally and nationally
  • Managing project finance, budgets and suppliers
  • Contributing to proposal documents and pitches for potential client projects
  • Staying well informed about new trends and best practice in PR and engagement and imparting this knowledge to the wider Account Management team.

 

The agency will go above and beyond, to give you the complete package. You will enjoy family friendly working, enhanced employer pension contributions and a complete health and wellbeing package. Most importantly, they offer you a place in a close-knit team who work hard, care for each other and want to make a difference.

 

Their Energy and Utilities team operates out of their offices in Sheffield and London. The pandemic has shown they can work from anywhere, but it’s also taught them that spending time together is really important. They are working towards a flexible hybrid model of home and office working, so they are seeking applications from candidates who can easily access one of their offices.

 

Most importantly, they offer you a place in their growing agency and within a close-knit team who work hard, care for each other and want to make a difference. They have been trading successfully for 26 years. The last three years have been our most successful ever. They are looking to hear from people with a passion to be part of this and to grow with us.
