You will be a senior PR, ideally with some B2B PR experience and have worked within an agency. What you really need, is a genuine interest in the tech sector and be excited at the idea of working with clients across healthcare tech, retail tech, marketing tech, cyber security, and robotics to name a few. Technology is everywhere and surrounds our daily lives, who cannot get excited about it!

You will have some experience in line managing or nurturing more junior members of the team, helping them grow in their careers. You will be the lead on a portfolio of accounts, meeting clients to develop their PR and content strategies. You will be relationships focused and enjoy spotting opportunities in the market. Not only will you love working with your clients, but you will also enjoy building relationships with the media, maybe you will be coming with some great contacts in B2B pr already.

The Company

BTB is proud to partner with Neo PR who are a brilliant tech PR agency based in Buckinghamshire but fully embracing this hybrid way of working. They are giving the option to work almost fully remote if you wish (just showing your face in the office once a week), but, have an office space in case you prefer being around people. They have an impressive client base spanning the UK and internationally and work across sectors such as retail, healthcare, logistics, IT, Cybersecurity, professional services and marketing tech. Their client base is so broad that there is something for everyone to get excited about! One of my favourite things about Neo PR, having worked with them for a number of years now, is their attitude and commitment to culture and their team. If you are looking for a ‘home’ where you feel safe, nurtured and valued then I think you will fit in well. They offer a brilliant benefits package from pension, flexi-working, training and development allowances, incentives, rewards and some of the best socials and Christmas treats that I have seen! Oh and not forgetting Sam their office dog, is guaranteed to bring a smile toyourface.
