Job Description

Description

Boldspace brings together advertising, marketing and PR through a pioneering approach – fusing the finest strategic and creative minds with our award-winning proprietary analytics platform BoldLens™. We discover what we call the bold space, the place our clients will win – building meaningful brands and bold communications with brand strategy, creativity and effectiveness always paramount.

We are a growing team of 50 people and were recently published in PR Week as the fastest growing PR agency in the UK. See some examples of our awesome work here – Brand Reputation | Boldspace

Requirements

Boldspace is looking for a Consultant (Account Manager) to take on a leading role across a variety of B2B clients that facilitate our purpose of making an objective, positive impact by building meaningful brands and creating bold communications.

The ideal candidate will have 3+ years’ experience and bring a supremely organised approach to the role, with proven B2B client experience in PR & Communications. The Consultant will be responsible for managing the day-to-day delivery across a number of our brand reputation accounts. 

  • Exceptional client management skills: you will be used to managing varied clients – from household brands to ambitious start-ups. You will excel at building trusted relationships with clients, stakeholders and budget holders, catching any potential issues before they happen. You will build a commercial relationship with your clients from the outset, ensuring they understand the value Boldspace brings. You will be comfortable managing client expectations and pushing back when required.
  • Account delivery: you will ensure client account teams have the understanding, knowledge, and enthusiasm to deliver high quality work and results for clients. You will ensure team members are briefed thoroughly on work delegated. When working with external suppliers you will ensure they have a clear scope of work, objectives, budget and timeline to manage output successfully.
  • Creative thinking & strategic advice: there will not be a day that goes by where we aren’t spending time coming up with creative ideas to solve our clients’ biggest problems. This is our absolute focus and what sets us apart. You will strive to produce work the rest of the industry talks about, staying abreast of what is happening and work to implement new thinking and behaviour. Leading by example you will motivate your team to constantly think of ideas to pitch proactively, and reactively, to clients.

THE SKILLS WE’RE LOOKING FOR

  • Multi-sector experience: on day one you will be working with clients in multiple sectors, delivering work across trade, national and international media. You will have worked with clients in different sectors in your career and be excited at the variety of work that comes with this role. 
  • B2B experience: you will have experience working with B2B clients, and will be as comfortable handling announcements and providing strategic advice as you are thinking about creative concepts, working with our creative team.  
  • Media relations expertise: you will have a wide-ranging knowledge of media tactics and best practice. 
  • Multi-channel experience: you will equally understand that PR is not all media relations, and will understand how to ensure the full channel mix is brought to the fore for clients. 
  • Intelligence and problem solving: fundamentally we want smart people who can provide deep advice to our clients on some of the biggest issues they face, and do so independently. You will be able to address these problems on a day-to-day basis and provide solutions to clients without needing regular input. 
  • Writing: you are a strong writer with an ability to think and create at pace. 
  • Attention to detail: you are an account lead that never allows a document to leave the agency with a single mistake. 
  • Independence: our culture is about getting the job done, it’s not about a 9-5 job in the office. We want people who are flexible and take responsibility and initiative for their own work, development and careers. We trust you to do your job and put in 110% – and for that, we provide a culture of ultimate flexibility and trust. 

Upon submitting application, please include examples of your work by adding a file or link to a portfolio if at all possible.

Benefits

  • Learning & development: everyone has a compulsory 1/2 day a month to learn, read and develop where they see fit. We also have 24/7 access to our very own integrated learning content authored by ourselves, we call it the Boldspace Academy. Here you can learn about other channels to broaden your knowledge across the marketing mix.
  • Pensions: a 5% employer contribution.
  • Equipment: choose your own equipment – let us know which tools you need and we’ll do our best to get them for you.
  • Holiday: unlimited holiday (including all UK public holidays) – we trust our staff to take the time they need and still excel in their jobs – and days off for birthdays and moving house are guaranteed!
  • Flexible working: complete choice over where you work each day.
  • Regular salary reviews: in line with a salary framework, to ensure equal pay for equal work and that we recognise and reward when your responsibilities increase.
  • Socials: team socials regularly, chosen by the team.
  • Team retreats: time to get to know each other away from the office.
  • Bonus: transparent bonus structure where you can receive a % of base salary based on personal and company performance.
  • Supporting good causes: we contribute some of our outperformance to charitable causes which the team help choose.
  • Wellness: time within working hours every week for those that want or need it.
  • Monthly benefits budget: £50 per month, every month, to spend on whatever you want – from a home delivered vegetable box and discounted gym memberships, to mental health support and professional coaching.

A CARBON NEUTRAL BUSINESS

Boldspace measures its performance on profit, people and planet combined. From day one, we will offset your carbon footprint entirely. The cost of this is covered 100% by the company.
