Current vacancy

Account Executive – Glasgow

Location: Glasgow
Type: Permanent
Deadline: 09/05/2021

We are looking for an Account Executive to join our team at Grayling. This role will involve both corporate and consumer PR work with day-to-day responsibilities including client servicing, problem solving, researching, writing and media and influencer relations.

This full-time role will be based in our Glasgow office. Some prior experience would be valuable but is not essential.

Join the UK’s best-connected agency, winner of this year’s Best Place to Work by PRWeek.


Key requirements

We are looking for an excellent communicator, team player, creative thinker and naturally curious individual. If you’re looking to kickstart or progress your career in PR within an exceptional agency, a ‘can – do’ attitude and ambition are hugely important for us and you don’t need to have a specific educational background. We are looking for two account executives that can demonstrate that they have the enthusiasm, passion, drive, creativity, hunger and hard working ethos to make the most of the opportunities at Grayling and a career in communications.


Who we are?

Grayling is a PR and communications agency with global reach. Our core teams cover consumer brand marketing and corporate reputation management, public affairs, public sector, digital marketing and content creation, crisis support, consultation and stakeholder engagement services. We have a great bunch of people across our nine regional offices, with two offices in Scotland – one in Glasgow and one in Edinburgh.

We are incredibly proud to have been selected as winner of PRWeek’s Best Places to Work. We hugely value our brilliant colleagues and work hard to provide the best possible working environment. We have also climbed five places to reach 22 in the publication’s Top 150 Consultancies, and we have just been shortlisted for Large Consultancy of the Year at the CIPR PRide Awards.


What you can expect?

You can expect an exciting, diverse and dynamic working environment, set in a culture that’s driven by our values; to be Curious, Connected and Committed.  We have regular team socials and finish early on Fridays. We also run regular Lunch and Learns, where (when restrictions allow!) you can grab a free pizza and learn about a new topic. Other benefits include a competitive salary, flexible working, free fruit, a company pension scheme, discounted gyms and an increasing holiday scheme up to 30 days.

We encourage personal development and will set out a clear career path for you. From day one, you will be given autonomy and exposure to our interesting and varied clients. You’ll also be able to sign up to our range of training workshops, from writing courses to sessions on commercial finance, resilience, creativity and many more!
