We are Magenta Associates, a fast-growing, award-winning B2B communications, PR and content marketing agency for the built environment. We’re a playful and creative consultancy that’s serious about getting results, and we’re on the lookout for two new brilliant people to join our talented team.

Account executive, Brighton – c.£18k + profit-related bonus The account executive makes up a key part of Magenta’s client-facing team and has a critical role in determining the future and long-term success of the company. Acting in a support capacity for your specific portfolio of clients, you will have a proactive, enthusiastic and creative approach when it comes to providing day-to-day PR, communications and content services to your team’s client base, as well as providing research and administrative support to your account director. The role involves working closely with clients and journalists. If that sounds like your cup of tea, give us a bell if you have –

· hands-on experience in a PR agency, or in an inhouse PR and communications role, whether that’s as an intern/ sandwich year or as a graduate

· great copywriting skills and [even better] ideas

· a proactive, ‘can do’ attitude

· confidence, charm and charisma

· energy and drive

· creativity and an eye for detail

· the same values as us – we’re curious, we love learning, we’re not afraid of trying new things, we work hard and play hard, we support each other, and we’re loyal cats

Content writer, Brighton – c.£20k + profit-related bonus The content writer makes up a key part of the Magenta team and has a critical role in determining the future and long-term success of the company. Acting as the content lead for your specific portfolio of clients, you will have a proactive, enthusiastic and creative approach when it comes to story-creation, synopsis / pitch development, content writing and editing. The role involves producing everything from short blogs and press releases to longer commissioned articles, papers and guides. Working closely with our account director and content manager, there will be the opportunity to develop your critical and creative writing skills, and you will also learn more about content strategy. If that sounds like your cup of tea, get in touch if you have –

· hands-on experience of content creation within a PR/ comms agency or other business environment, whether that’s as an intern/ sandwich year or as a graduate

· a journalist background (professional or amateur) or a demonstrable portfolio of work (creative / critical) either as a published or self-published writer

· second-to-none copywriting / editing skills

· the ability to grasp and write about complex topics

· research and investigation skills

· a track record in adapting your writing style depending on the brief in question

· a proactive, ‘can do’ attitude

· confidence, charm and charisma

· energy and drive

· creativity and an eye for detail

· the same values as us – we’re curious, we love learning, we’re not afraid of trying new things, we work hard and play hard, we support each other, and we’re loyal cats.

We’re a passionate bunch and so we naturally go beyond the call of duty for our clients. And it’s because of this that Magenta takes rewarding hard work seriously. Employee benefits include $50 Magenta Dollars per quarter that can be spent on everything from massages, gym subsidy and swim classes, to cinema trips, rock climbing adventures and dining experiences. We also have quarterly team days (in the past, we’ve enjoyed curling, brewery tours, GoApe and wine tasting together), wellbeing workshops, free fresh fruit, barista-style coffee, a weekly team exercise class (bring your trainers!), ‘Bank of Magenta’ cheque books (so line managers can issue tangible thank yous to their teams), and an annual team trip abroad to explore a new culture and spend quality time together. Oh and we offer flexible working, too.

We offer a competitive salary plus a bonus linked to the company’s profitability, 25 days’ holiday (which increases after three years of service) your birthday off every year, private healthcare, childcare vouchers, flexible working, and all the other benefits listed above. From access to an array of learning and development courses and flexible working, through to opportunities to take part in the ‘Time to Change’ mental health campaign or Magenta’s pro bono work with our corporate charity, Clowns Without Borders – we ensure our “M People” are supported, engaged, happy, healthy and safe (emotionally and physically) in and out of work.

If either of these roles sound like they’re for you, then email your CV to katina@magentaassociates.co.uk outlining your skills and experience and why you would be perfect for Magenta.
