We are looking for an Account Executive to join our growing team at Here Be Dragons.
Here Be Dragons is a creative communications agency. While focussed on the discipline of PR, we believe in a modern definition of this term, focussing on creating bold work that drives conversation and WOM across earned media and social. To do that we use a broad range of disciplines which form the base of our service offering to clients, split across two sides of the business.
Here Be Dragons Agency: PR & Press Office, Digital PR & SEO, Brand Strategy, Social, Experiential & Media, Tailwinds & Foresight
Here Be Dragons Studio: Creative, Digital & Brand Design, Content Production
Our work is very varied and can encompass a product launch one day, a media event the next, or any level of stunt or brand activation. We work across many verticals - film, music, technology, telecoms, entertainment, food & beverage, so no two days are the same.
We work hard but we like to enjoy life, so work life balance is pretty important to us. We also like to spend time together, so regularly organise cultural days out, team training sessions and after work drinks.
Culture-wise, there are six key values of Here Be Dragons, which we ask all our staff, clients and partners to adhere to:
Progressive - we are an inclusive and forward thinking agency. We never stand still and always move forward. Stationary is stagnant. We reflect this in our hiring process, our work, our clients, our ethos.
Curious - We look, we discover, we don’t wait to be told or shown. We are curious about the world and discovering new things
Playful - Our work is serious, but it doesn’t have to not be fun. Our work and our agency has intent but that doesn’t mean it can’t be entertaining.
Current - Our work and outlook reflects the world around it, we don’t look back.
Opinionated - we speak up and have our say, we are bold. We value respect, not likes.
Good Vibes - We are nice people.
We are looking for an Account Executive which would suit someone with about 6 months/a year’s experience. This is a PR role so a love of earned media, and understanding of wider culture is a must.
Key to this role is a wish to learn, and someone who will relish being part of a dynamic, growing team.
Speaking to media on a daily basis, building relationships and getting coverage for our clients
Contributing to media materials
Monitor media coverage and social
Doing product drops to media via courier
Good writing skills
Ability to pick up the phone to any media and speak to them with confidence
Love culture, news and the internet (hills, mountains, sheep okay too)
We are based in Shoreditch, East London, where we have revamped an old art gallery into a new, multifaceted and modular studio space. We’d love you to be able to work from there, but we are also operating a hybrid working model, so a combination of physical and remote working is preferred.
We are an equal opportunities employer and positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
