  • Manage media inquiries and coordinate responses across business units, maintaining a library of responses.
  • Monitor daily media coverage and leverage opportunities for engagement.
  • Measure PR impact through regular metrics and reports.
  • Coordinate with Digital Communications and Stakeholder Engagement teams to create accurate and compelling external content.
  • Provide media training and connect Directors and Senior Leaders with relevant media and agencies.
  • Oversee content publication and act as editorial oversight for other content creators within the organisation.
  • Draft proactive and reactive media releases with input from subject matter experts.
  • Maintain and execute crisis communications plans.
  • Offer support and advice for colleague events and other communications activities.
  • Stay updated on marketing and communications best practices to enhance strategies and materials.
  • Ensure communication aligns with TAG's brand guidelines and tone of voice.
  • Collaborate with Group Communications team members to deliver top-notch PR and communications support.

Who are we looking for?

  • Experience in PR management, with exceptional content writing abilities.
  • Skilled in managing PR agencies, media inquiries, and press release distribution.
  • Degree-level qualification in a related field and CIPR membership/qualification.
  • Experienced in omni-channel B2B and B2C communications, including direct engagement with journalists.
  • Able to handle reactive media inquiries alongside proactive PR campaign management.
  • Proficient in managing social channels to complement media relations and other PR efforts.
  • Capable of developing presentations, scripts, and corporate materials such as annual reports.
  • Self-motivated with a strong team-player mindset, capable of responding dynamically to changing situations while maintaining quality.
  • Proactive, positive, and creative communications professional with exceptional written, editorial, and presentation abilities.
  • Able to manage own workload, drive collaboration, and coordinate campaigns with key stakeholders to achieve objectives.
