As well as this, you’ll be expected to speak to journalists and bloggers on a day-to-day basis about campaigns, proactive ideas, providing quotes and offering product samples from ecommerce clients in exchange for reviews.

As a specialist or senior, you’ll be expected to be involved with clients from pitching, straight through to delivery. This may include creating digital PR proposals, strategies, attending in-person pitches and completing deliverables for a client.

In turn, Liberty offers a unique company culture, great perks and the chance to develop your skills in an ambitious, innovative and supportive environment.
