Account Manager – Travel PR
What’s the gig?
FINN Partners is on the hunt for an Account Manager to join our UK travel PR practice. Ideally you will have three or more years’ experience in travel PR or within journalism and of course; have a strong knowledge of the media landscape. You will have the desire or impulse to travel, wander and explore this beautiful world and be ready to bring your passion to an award-winning integrated agency.
What you’ll be up to?
As Account Manager you will run the day-to-day operations for some of the best destinations and brands in the business. Manage a small team and work closely with several Account Directors, across a portfolio of exciting travel clients, to deliver varied consumer campaigns across a variety of platforms including print digital and broadcast. Projects will be strategic and innovative, from concept through to execution to ensure excellent client exposure. You will oversee the creation of media lists, activity reports, content creation, organise and host events, sell in stories, and attend client meetings. Hosting media and keeping on top of journalistic needs and deadlines is integral to the role as well as arranging those all-important press trips. You’ll lead brainstorms and oversee campaign delivery; we are a collaborative bunch here at FINN and want the opinions of all team members.
Day to day?
There is no typical day… generally, working hours are 9.00- 5:00pm, Monday to Friday but sometimes there are times you will be out until late or up at the crack of dawn organising photo shoots or attending events – that is the nature of PR. We offer a hybrid working structure that offers a mix of WFH and WFO and our gorgeous new office next to Liverpool Street Station is designed for hybrid brainstorms, meetings, and get-togethers as a team. Not based in London? That’s ok – we have team members scattered across the UK who visit the office on occasion, so we welcome remote applicants, and we offer flexible working options.
