PR Intern (STEP Programme), A New Direction


Job Summary

Hope & Glory are a consumer brand and lifestyle PR agency that helps organisations connect with consumers through the channels and media that influences them most.

Job Description

On starting with us you'll work on around three to five client accounts as support for the team. That involves looking after the coverage monitoring, creating media lists, putting together activity reports, doing research, helping with the account admin. Depending on what's going on you might also end up helping with events, photoshoots, writing press releases, selling in stories to media or sitting in on client meetings.

And there's a lot of reading the media. Papers, magazines, online, social. That's the best way to spot opportunities, learn who writes what (and when and what their deadlines are) and start to understand what makes a good story.

We always make sure that, on the one hand, you get a decent view of what it is to work in PR and an opportunity to do the fun stuff, while, on the other, you don't find yourself thrown in at the deep end without the support you need.

Job Requirements

About STEP

STEP is a training programme for young East Londoners local to the Olympic Park, who are ready to bring ideas, creative energy and perspectives to the creative and cultural sector.

You must be;

  • Aged 18 to 30
  • Resident of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest
  • We welcome applicants who have been educated outside of the above boroughs but priority will be given to those that have attended school or college in these boroughs

Through STEP, you'll get paid London Living Wage over a 12-month training programme to develop a range of skills and creative approaches and build on your network across different organisations or departments. You'll complete a work-based placement, grow as part of a peer network, take part in regular professional development workshops, and get a budget to produce a collaborative project. We'll also connect you with a specialist industry mentor, provide careers coaching and continue to offer support as part of our community.

Job Responsibilities

No previous consumer PR experience is required for the role, but a decent idea of what PR is about is a good thing. And a clear idea about why you want to get into this industry - as well as what you're going to bring to it.

What is important is that you've worked in some capacity before, either during studying or at a weekend, and you can demonstrate both strong written and spoken English.

Beyond that, enthusiasm, a willingness to learn, a can-do attitude, an inclination to work pretty hard and get the job done is what we'd be looking for.
