Freelance PR & Communications Account Manager
David B Field Consulting

Opportunity closes: 4th Jul 2022
Type: Freelance
Based: London
Salary: min £300.00 per Day

David B. Field Consulting is looking for a highly driven, proactive, and enthusiastic Communications and PR freelancer to support a growing roster of international visual arts clients during a busy period.

Our focus is on long-term strategic communications for a small number of high-profile international clients, including arts businesses, not-for-profits, and consumer brands.

The position is a highly flexible and remote fixed-term contract for six months initially, offering 20 hours per week with potential to extend, subject to candidate and campaign performance. The position would suit someone who is interested in going freelance, or an existing freelancer.

The team is small, agile and works remotely, so it is essential that applicants are confident in their abilities to work independently to deliver successful results.

We occasionally collaborate on projects with experienced freelancers who operate autonomously and collaborate across accounts, which means you will not necessarily have a line manager – instead, you will be working with a team of likeminded individuals with a variety of skill-sets.

The ideal candidate has worked in an account management role previously (or managed client accounts as a freelancer) and will have experience in account management and end-to-end campaign delivery – including research and report writing, media relations / securing coverage, social media strategy, and VIP management.

Tasks include, but are not limited to:

  • Copywriting (e.g. press releases and blasts, event invitations, client social media posts and newsletter content)
  • CRM management (e.g. drafting and researching event guest-lists and managing RSVPs)
  • Researching press (and wider communications) opportunities and risks
  • Media monitoring and campaign reporting
  • Supporting events on the ground where needed (e.g. press launches, press previews and VIP events)

Experience in Design PR specifically would be desirable but not essential. Organisational skills are essential, as well as fluent (spoken and written) English.

The candidate should be able to work independently and collaboratively under tight deadlines with different partners and stakeholders.
