Automotive Technology
PR Account Manager
Highly capable and confident PR practitioner to take up a central role as one of the company’s lead account managers handling a portfolio of automotive tech accounts.

The role

We’re based in the fizzing, bubbling cauldron of auto-tech innovation in Oxford, where world-class innovations are at the forefront of the automotive industry. As an established company, we’ve made a name for ourselves as a go-to consultancy for scaling companies wanting to be known as well as established businesses want to reposition themselves in an ever-competitive market place.

Our clients are endlessly fascinating, helping to electrify the auto industry, power it with hydrogen tech or harnessing AI to power new, exponential ways of doing things.

We want to find somebody excited about trailblazing these frankly amazing companies. But you’ll also need some old-school skill sets including competence and enthusiasm to pitch media, knowing how to find a story amid piles of complicated tech and highly capable writing and editorial skills – from drafting long-form white papers to storyboarding a social video.

You might be a more experienced AE looking to take a step up, or an AM who wants to broaden their skill set. As we grow, you can have a transformative impact on our business as an individual. And if you’re on it, we’ll willingly pass on responsibility and rewards. As well as delivery of a five-star service to our lovely clients, you’ll have the chance to influence our future growth – whether business management, client growth, talent and team leadership or helping to evangelise about the agency’s capabilities.

The Responsibilities

About You
You’ll be a future leader and doer, smart but enthusiastic and motivated in equal measure. You’ll also be happy to roll your sleeves up and get stuck into a little bit of everything – a comms all-rounder.

Passion for all things automotive and technology and its capacity to solve intractable problems would form part of the match criteria for us – and for that reason, your most likely highly enquiring and have a sense of the world beyond. Equally, you will have some unhealthy obsession with some part of the media landscape – rolling news junkies, staunch defenders of the BBC charter or social media obsessives are welcome in equal measure.

You’ll bring with you knowledge of the AutoTech space – ideally the commercial rather than consumer markets, but a strong contact book of AutoTech media and with it some first-hand agency experience. You’ll be able to write persuasively and be happy on the end of a phone pitching journalists.

It’s our gameplan that this new AM will build a team in time, so aspiration to lead and develop a team would be no bad thing.
