We are looking for a talented and versatile writer and content creator to join our PR agency in Lightwater, Surrey, as a Content Executive.
An ideal candidate will have 1-2 years of experience in B2B PR, but related fields such as journalism and sufficiently experienced graduates will be considered. Writing ability is more valuable than specific experience, but cybersecurity or business technology industry knowledge is favourable.
