WANTED: Shiny, new member of staff

Stone Junction is on the lookout again – this time for a brand new, shiny member of staff. The new recruit will help us cope with the exciting new accounts we've added to our portfolio.

Are you a bright spark? A creative copywriter with lots of energy? Can you put up with bad jokes on a day to day basis? Just kidding. If you can tick all the boxes above, Stone Junction may be the place for you.

We're looking for ambitious individuals to fill in the following roles:

Account executive
Tired of reading job ads that say you will spend the first year of your career making coffee, washing the MD’s car and collecting your colleague’s dry cleaning? Look no further, an account executive at Stone Junction is required to do none of those things. Often.

Instead we offer a friendly and relaxed, but committed, environment focused on developing your professional skills and allowing you to deliver real projects for real clients as soon as possible.

The ideal candidate would be a graduate with the ability to write compelling copy, grasp technical arguments quickly and form a rapport with clients and journalists both face to face and over the phone. You will also require a keen understanding of the online landscape and strong communication and time management skills.

Engineering experience and/or European language skills are a bonus but not essential.

Salary band: £16K to £22K plus benefits, depending on experience

Senior Account Executive
If you have two or more years' experience in PR and would like to take the next step up in your career then this opportunity is for you. Stone Junction is recruiting for a Senior Account Executive with good copywriting skills and the ambition to grow professionally.

The successful candidate would be an agile communicator able to build strong relationships with journalists and clients.

Engineering experience and/or European language skills are a bonus but not essential.

Salary band: £22 to £28K plus benefits, depending on experience

Account manager
Are you a bossy so-and-so with experience of managing PR campaigns in the technical sector? If so, this role could be for you.

The perfect candidate will have at least three year’s experience in PR as well as an excellent grasp of PR tactics and strategy. The ability to manage clients, prioritise tasks against tight deadlines and work proactively in a fast paced environment are all essential. Outstanding attention to detail and well developed writing skills are also crucial. Maintaining good journalist relationships, as well as editing and proofreading abilities are also essential.

Engineering experience and/or European language skills are a bonus but not essential.

Salary band: £28 to £32K plus benefits, depending on experience
