We’re Looking for Maternity Cover!

Senior Account Executive (Maternity Cover)


Salary: £21k – £22k

One of our Shooting Stars is having a baby, so we’re looking for a capable PR account executive to help provide cover while she’s away.

If you’ve been working full-time in PR, journalism or marketing for at least a year and you thrive on hard work then this role could be for you.

You’ll be working for our Interim Account Manager and supporting her on some of our busy client accounts, in sectors ranging from beauty and tourism to sport and food.

Are you a good fit for us? You must be self-reliant, confident, friendly and efficient; you’ll enjoy working as part of a team but equally you can roll your sleeves up and get stuck into work using your own initiative. And you’ll be bursting with ideas on how to raise the profile of our clients.

It goes without saying that you will be a news junkie who loves to write, an expert at digital and social media with a solid practical knowledge of marketing. You will have creative flair, strong communication skills and a willingness to take on hard work and exciting challenges.

Are we a good fit for you? We’re a close-knit and friendly team and we look after some amazing clients, including the Midlands Engine for Growth, Snowsport England, global fine food producer Labeyrie and national health awards scheme Our Health Heroes.

We can offer a busy and rewarding working environment, a competitive salary and bonuses for bringing in new business. The initial contract will be for six months, although it could be extended, and we expect the successful candidate to start work in September 2019.

If you’d like to work in the beautiful cathedral city of Lincoln and you think you’re the right person for this job, email your CV and a covering letter before 5pm on Friday 28th
June 2019 to hello@weareshootingstar.co.uk. For an informal chat about the role call 01522 528540 and ask for Jez or Kate.

Additional information

It’s busy, don’t get us wrong, but when it’s time to get together to chuck a few ideas around for a new campaign or come up with a snappy headline, we like nothing more than settling down with a brew and a bacon bap (or a teacake, if you prefer).
Which brings us nicely on to another subject: food. We love cake, and luckily for us we look after the social media for a bakery (dream come true!). And when you work with us you’ll be showered not only with sweet treats, but a range of other benefits too. These include:

  • A free breakfast once a week 
  • After work (payday) drinks
  • An extra day off on your birthday 
  • Christmas parties
  • Office dogs
  • A pension scheme
  • Perkbox treats
  • Team building days
  • A supply of fresh fruit
  • And (last but not least) top banter!
