About the Role
You will be responsible for developing and nurturing relationships with key media contacts and growing the community of users on TheNewsMarket through positioning and pitching our latest stories to the media (via phone and email), placing live interviews and conducting some newsroom visits.
You will also be responsible for gathering content feedback from journalists and working with our technology and client team to tweak the platform accordingly and provide editorial content suggestions in order to optimize performance across the board.
Social Media expertise will also be a plus, since we would like you to help update all our social media pages (Twitter, Youtube, Facebook & Pinterest) with new content, videos and photos and to share great posts on our blog http://blog.thenewsmarket.com.
Ideally, you have worked as a Media Relations executive, PR or Journalist for 1-2 years, with a degree in communications, media or a related field and a definite passion for new and a good knowledge of the media industry, both national and international.
You will be used to handling high-profile international stories and dealing with the media on a daily basis.
This calls for a creative mind with excellent communication skills including the ability to build relationships, manage stakeholders and handle a wide range of contacts.
Detail orientated and highly organised, you will be able to prioritise and manage multiple projects.
You’ll certainly have excellent writing skills.
Decisive, organised and determined, you’ll be prepared to give expert advice and take responsibility for specialist subject areas.
Due to the global nature of our business, mastery of a foreign language would be preferred, with Russian, German or Mandarin being a clear advantage and other European languages, such as Italian, French and Spanish will be considered a plus.
