PR Account Manager - Jersey Road PR

PR Account Manager - Jersey Road PR

Be part of a small, vibrant and creative team in this flexible full-time role.


We exist to help give faith-based organisations a voice and influence through the media. In national media, the church and Christian organisations are often presented in narrow and negative terms and we want to help reframe that narrative and share positive, stories of impact from faith-based organisations, resource them to build their reputation and position themselves as thought leaders in the issues that matter in today’s society.

From rescuing victims of human trafficking to tackling issues of climate change, supporting children in poverty to raising awareness of the issues of mental health, we believe Christian organisations have a story worth sharing.

Over the past few years we have experienced significant growth as an agency, working with organisations who are passionate about what they do and making a difference in the world. In light of this the Directors of Jersey Road PR are seeking to grow the team of this small, vibrant and creative team and recruit a PR Account Manager to manage more of the day-to-day activities of client accounts, thereby increasing our impact, reach and influence not only as an agency, but on behalf of the clients we serve.
