The company

Right Angles is a small, tight-knit team of PR and CEO reputation specialists. Based in Central London, we have an incredibly niche offering, and we are looking for a hard-working, highly motivated self-starter who can take responsibility, deliver results and work at an intense level, often for long hours.

 

The opportunity

This is the perfect opportunity for a determined self starter who wants training and experience in PR and reputation management. A small practice, like ours, gives you a huge opportunity to get stuck in, get the training and exposure you need and get support from those who have been doing this a long time. You won’t be making the coffee (ok sometimes…we all do!) you will be learning invaluable skills and working as part of a team with a flat structure. Experience preferred but not necessary! We will give you all the tools you need for a successful start in your role as long as you are willing and driven to learn!

 

What we do

We do CEO PR. Take a look at what that means here.

We don’t do ‘regular’ PR in the sense of corporate or consumer PR. We look after the CEO only, doing their personal PR – positioning them as a thought leader on the global stage, getting them keynote speaking opportunities around the world, making introductions to the most senior journalists/editors, arranging feature interviews, creating and running their social media profile and blog, writing articles, speeches and presentations etc. We also work with Family Offices, managing and controlling the personal and business exposure for individuals.

A significant portion of our activities is not strict PR, and may involve turning our skills to helping secure investment, company acquisitions/disposals, extending a client’s professional network, or building strategic sales partnerships for their companies in the UK and internationally. All executed behind the scenes.

We look after them as a ‘person’ too – coaching, advising, and acting as a ‘sounding board’ – generally ‘being there’ for whatever they need. Our services work alongside, and build upon, their existing corporate media team. We are not publicists and we are not their press office.

This service is something really new, very niche, and wholly bespoke. We never get a brief. We tell our clients what they need to do, and then we make it happen. They rely on us 24/7.

 

Company culture

We are ambitious and highly motivated individuals. Everybody in our company is a self-starter, flexible and comfortable working with very little guidance. Due to the nature of our work, we operate at an incredibly fast pace and thrive when working to very tight deadlines. We often work unsociable hours including weekends and are happy to share responsibility for all tasks.
