Account Executive

PR

London, Victoria • Full Time

PR

We are Harvard: a multi award-winning agency for tech brands big and small. With services spanning creative and marketing, planning and PR, we help our clients make their move and our people make their mark.

We’ve grown phenomenally in the last few years to an 80+ strong business with global clients, and this expansion is set to continue. We are now looking for an Account Executive to join the team and build a career here.

About the role

Reporting into a Account Director and working in a high-performing team, this is a fast-paced and varied role. You’ll be client facing and will have the opportunity to get involved in a wealth of different projects and pieces of work.

The team you’ll join focuses on B2B technology that impacts businesses, society and the world around us. This is an opportunity to get stuck in and tell stories about how technology is transforming everyday life.

Ideally, we’d like someone who has experience in Public Relations working with technology businesses, but we’re absolutely open to hearing from anyone who shares our passion for technology and PR – and has experiences they feel may be relevant to the role. A client-centric, proactive approach with a willingness to go the extra mile will put you in good stead.

At Harvard, we’re very proud of our people-first culture and are 100% committed to providing an environment where each-and-every employee feels empowered to be themselves and thrive every day. In February 2021 we were awarded The Blueprint Ally status – a diversity mark launched in June 2020 by BME PR Pros founder Elizabeth Bananuka – which we feel demonstrates our commitment to the positive D&I journey we are on.  We would love for you to add to the tapestry that is our culture.

We provide all of the benefits you’d expect – profit-related pay, up to 5% matched pension, private medical insurance and structured training to help you develop and progress your career. We also have a few special perks to help our people get through these weird times, such as free (virtual for now) yoga, virtual gym membership, and full access to the mindfulness app Calm.

The day to day will be:

You will be keen team member helping to provide consultancy and develop strong relationships with your day to day client contacts. Whether that’s supporting on client calls and meetings or overseeing account administration to ensure accurate and efficient reporting. You will be drafting written thought leadership content and pitching to trade and vertical media behalf of your clients. Therefore, nurturing your own personal media contacts and knowledge is essential. Finally, you will be involved in the development of media strategies for you clients as well as integrated comms campaigns and media launches.
