THE SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATE WILL

Be creative, collaborative, strategic, positive, organised and enjoy being part of a small team – as well as the changing possibilities of the industry.

Have at least 2 years of relevant experience in public relations with strong media and industry contacts, a passion for music and the creative industries and a fundamental interest in developing careers and long-term strategies for an exceptional client base.

Highly creative and emotionally intelligent, able to capitalise on clients’ unique passion points in order to create strategic promotional plans and long-term vision for clients and the business. Full of integrity and highly ethical, loyal and driven by the manifesto of making good things happen for good people.

Use their own initiative and be creative with expansive, big ideas for their own projects as well as the rest of the team if called upon. It is important that this person is independent but also actively collaborative.
