We’re Press Box PR!
We’re an ambitious and growing agency made up of ex-journalists and PR professionals combining their experience of generating online media coverage for a range of clients in the sports, consumer and professional industries.
The Press Box team takes pride in media relations and we work hand-in-hand with journalists at publications around the world, generating stories, creative campaigns and ideas based on a thorough understanding of what makes online media tick.
It’s a place where you get out what you put in, with regular social events and a commitment to ensuring staff all benefit in career terms and financially from the growth they drive. After a successful year working with a leading international investment bank, we’re looking to bring in the right person to keep up our national and regional coverage of personal finance from energy bills to popular stocks such as Tesla and Apple with the view to expand this area of the business.
Press Box PR was founded in 2020 and began as a one-man band before growing into a fully-fledged agency, bringing in some of the best editorial and PR minds to gain coverage for brands in the media around some of the biggest news stories in the world – from the US Election to the Premier League title race.
Press Box PR are looking for an individual with a finance or news journalism background, who understands the media appetite for financial and economic news that affects consumers directly.
The successful candidate will be able to turn technical analysis of stocks and shares, commodities such as oil and gas prices, inflation and interest rates, into digestible, newsworthy press releases that match up to the news agenda.
Your primary objective will be to achieve coverage for our clients in this sphere by proactively and reactively using events in the news – such as the Budget, a Bank of England statement or a Tesla quarterly report – to offer the right tone of personal finance content to busy journalists.
You will also be responsible for devising interesting, insightful and well-researched set pieces for clients and delivering them to the media in an engaging and efficient manner.
Your unique insight into the media and your strong contacts book in either news, finance or both areas will be your key to success as you produce content based on informed knowledge of what journalists are looking for.
We want you to join our team and grow with us as we expand into new, important areas and bring on bigger and better clients working on some of the most newsworthy stories around the UK and across the world.
To apply, please send a short covering letter explain why you would be the best person for this role and why you would like to join Press Box PR along with your CV by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
