We are currently looking for an adaptable and hardworking Senior Account Executive to join our innovative and dedicated PR team. You will be working with a well-established team of PR professionals, who are focused on supporting you to reach your career goals. You will be working on a fast-paced, science-driven account with a collaborative team based across multiple international offices.

Your responsibilities will include (but are not limited to):

  • Contributing to the development and execution of PR programs
  • Developing client relationships

  • Creating a range of communications materials
  • Attention to detail and good quality-control skills
  • Supporting with the development of client plans.
  • Supporting with the day to day management of the account
  • Adhering to budgets

At AXON we actively encourage the team to be involved in activities outside of their day-to-day work. Whether that’s being involved in our social, marketing or CSR Electives, attending networking events, or running training sessions on topics they have a personal interest in (some recent examples include mindfulness and nutrition). We have a keen focus on training and development and as a rough guide, suggest employees aim to complete 37.5 hours of learning a year.  Whether that be through online learning, classroom training, or attending external events, that’s one week a year dedicated to your development.

  • Relevant account handling experience in a healthcare PR setting
