Having started as a one-man-band in 2012, Clark has grown to 10 people with
87 years of combined experience, spanning 2 cities, and 1 office dog. We are immensely proud of the team we’ve built, who share a common vision and passion to help our clients shine.

But that doesn’t make us a cookie-cutter agency. No two of our colleagues have the same expertise, strengths or skills and that’s just how we like it. It means our eclectic bunch have a great balance of perspectives and personalities capable of delivering insightful and inspiring work for our clients.

Everything we do starts with a spark of imagination and an open mind. Our inclusive, grown-up culture is the perfect environment to make this happen.

We are all over nurturing talent, delivering career opportunities, and rewarding ambition. We are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community where everyone can be themselves and succeed on merit.

We’ve always had a positive attitude to flexibility and balance (even before 2020), and we know that one size doesn’t fit all – so our working patterns reflect the person and the work is better for it.

Summer Fridays, payday earlies and birthday bunk-offs are the cherries on the cake at Clark.

Hiring

Account executive (x 2)

Location: Edinburgh and Glasgow

If you’re a soon-to-be graduate looking for your first communications industry position, look no further.

We have two vacancies for graduate-level PR account executives and are seeking applications from recent graduates with a degree in PR, communications, marketing, English, or similar disciplines.

No experience is necessary; we’ll show you the ropes, but excellent writing skills and a strong grasp of grammar are essential.  You must bring a positive, can-do attitude.  You’ll be a self-starter, not afraid to take the initiative.  Pride in a job well done and a determination to succeed are highly desirable qualities.

In return, you will benefit from a fully structured development programme, where you will learn in a supportive environment and gain hands-on experience with our teams in tech, public sector and B2B PR, social media and digital comms, and you will work with our graphic design function to project manage client requirements.  A rotational structure will ensure you learn from experienced practitioners across our business, supplemented by in-house coaching and mentoring, as well as industry-approved training opportunities.

Specific tasks and duties include (but not limited to):

  • Participate in creative idea sessions for existing client PR and social media strategies and new business proposals
  • Drafting a range of content, including news releases, opinion articles, blogs, newsletters, and social media posts
  • Client research to support the development of new ideas and opportunities
  • Monitoring, tracking and reporting media coverage, social media reporting and analysis, and measuring and evaluating other PR outputs and metrics
  • Briefing and managing graphic design briefs and collateral production
  • Client liaison and account handling, including attendance at client meetings

Clark is an award-winning, ambitious and growing agency, and you will be an important part of our success.  We have a strong employee culture, driven by our desire to be a place where people enjoy their work and feel rewarded.  We offer an attractive benefits package, and because work-life balance is really important to us we have a range of flexible working arrangements and informal perks too.

If you’d like to be considered, please submit your CV by Friday 11 June 2021 along with a 300-word statement explaining why you’d like to join our team. Email angela@clarkcommunications.co.uk
