Adzuna is a next-generation search engine. We list every job, home and car in the UK & 5 other countries & aim to make your search experience better.

Probably the best in-house PR Manager job in London! Adzuna is growing like crazy, has a top class team and investors, and has achieved incredible press coverage already. Go on, apply and make yourself famous as well as us.

We’re hiring for a PR Manager, based in our office in Clapham, south west London. It’s a challenging, high responsibility role.

PR is fundamental to the growth of our global business and we're looking for an individual to build on the early success we've already had. 

Reporting to co-founder Andrew Hunter, the role involves leading the PR and Social Media activities of the company and the overall brand building strategy for the business. 

Key responsibilities:

PR

  • Achieve a sustained flow of high quality, on-brand press coverage for Adzuna internationally in national, regional, broadcast and trade/online media.
  • Act as an ambassador for the brand in communications with journalists, bloggers and other influencers, become the spokesperson for the brand in broadcast media.
  • Generate PR ideas for all markets, research data and write press releases, with the aim to produce at least numerous high quality releases and one other ad hoc / exclusive / feature piece throughout the month.
  • Build target journalist lists, and develop relationships with key journalists as well as selling in stories directly.
  • Maintain a list of coverage achieved and press pages on the Adzuna website.
  • Work with and manage agencies or freelancers when relevant.
  • Lead development of international PR strategy & execution and manage country managers to deliver consistent, high quality PR. 

Social Media:


  • Twitter: Manage the company's twitter account. Duties include sharing news, Adzuna developments & competitions, interactions with users and friends/customers/journalists. Build followers & project the right brand image.
  • Facebook: Manage Facebook account and build engagement from the current Adzuna community and grow likes / new users 
  • Blog: Maintain the Adzuna UK blog and write relevant, interesting, high quality articles – and manage other contributors. Supervise multi-country blogs on an ongoing basis.
  • Continuously evaluate best practise from other brands and develop our approach to be recognised as a market leader in this area.

Other:

  • Develop competitions, quizzes/polls, infographics, videos, company merchandise and other relevant content to support social media and development of the Adzuna brand.
  • Support product development projects based on user feedback from public channels
  • Manage freelance content writers, marketers and others to grow brand awareness
  • Anything else that the company needs to help get the word out!

Desired Skills & Experience:

  • You must have between 1 and 5 years of PR & Marketing experience at a startup or blue chip web brand.
  • You must have a great university degree, and can demonstrate strong analytical and copy writing skills and attention to detail.
  • Most of all, you must be hands-on, entrepreneurial, organised and thrive on juggling a lot of balls. You must be a native English language speaker. 

In exchange for your hard work, you’ll learn a ton from some of the top experts in the functions you deal with, you’ll get paid a market competitive salary and be granted stock options, and if you’re successful your career can progress quickly in a low-hierarchy, fast-growing company.

We are people who want to make a difference, to move fast, innovate and strive for excellence, and who work together well as a team. Impact, results and commitment to the cause are what we measure ourselves on, not how many hours are spent in the office. We are all owners of our business.

From launch in the UK in 2011, we now have more than 2 million visitors a month and are busy conquering the world from our small, cool office on the top floor of a brewery in Clapham. We need your help. It’ll be fun, hard work, and rewarding.
