VACANCIES

Thinking of taking your career to the next level? Enjoy brand communications work in a fast paced and exciting environment?  Wild Card is always looking for experienced specialists and new talent to grow and develop.  If you’re ready for the next step, drop us a line below with your CV. Let’s talk.

Standout Senior Account Execs: we need you!

Do you have two or more years PR experience? Are you looking to change jobs? Make the next step up in your career? Then we want to hear from you!

But before you pitch your experience to us, let us pitch Wild West to you… it’s quite simple: if you love food, travel and storytelling, want to work for a national PR agency while breathing in the fresh Cornish air and want to shape your own direction, we should talk.

We’re the people that launched the world’s first Cornish spoken TV advert for Kelly’s ice cream, got UK dog owners barking about Clean Eating for Dogs with Forthglade and, not forgetting, turned a penalty box D into a Ginsters Cornish Pasty for April Fools. Wild West is an award-winning agency, where the team deliver impactful, engaging and creative campaigns daily. 

A bit more about the role… exciting, creative and you’ll make things happen. As part of our Project 2020 initiative, you’ll get to develop those areas of your job where you have most affinity and interest – recent promotions have focused on news, media relationships, travel and influencers as specialisms. You’ll get out and forge media and influencer relationships rather than be desk bound. You’ll be client facing and important to both long term and new client names for us. You’ll pitch and work on the business you win. Leads you bring to the table will be rewarded. We have a London office, which you will visit and work from regularly.

We’d love an experienced Account Exec to come with built in ideas; a tenacious attitude to media outreach and relationships; a keen copywriter and a spring in their step. Cakes are optional but advisable.

If the above has whet your appetite for a career with Wild West, Truro Office please send your CV to Katherine.clark@wildcard.co.uk

ARE YOU OUR NEXT EXCEPTIONAL ACCOUNT DIRECTOR?

Our Account Directors are inspiring, experienced and hugely effective operators.  They know what it takes to win new business, develop commercially-minded campaign strategies and deliver award winning programmes. And we’re looking for another to join the team.

If you have a minimum of five year’s PR agency experience, ideally FMCG brands, your specialisms could include (but not exclusive to) food, drink, travel and (West Country) lifestyle, then read on.

What’s in it for you? You get to work with a pretty awesome team of individuals who love cake as much as they love double page solus client features, a roster of clients that span FMCG, challenger brands and game-changing start-ups – and you get to do this 30 mins from a beach! We have a sister agency in London, so you’ll also get to spend time in the Big Smoke.  Plus, our benefits package is highly competitive and reflects the level of seniority this opportunity offers.

What we need from you…

Drive a team through your brilliance and guidance

Provide considered client counsel

Strategic, creative campaign thinking

A keen eye for the numbers and a budget

Digitally confident with a multi-channel approach

Have amazing media and business relationships

Coach, mentor and motivate

PR ACCOUNT EXEC

Our pitch story is simple.

“If you love food, drink and the finer things in life, want to specialise in a space that already fuels your everyday, and want to feel like an individual who can shape your own direction, we should talk”.

It’s less about hyperbole for us, and more about an agency very comfortable in our own skin where the team deliver creativity in context.

We are the people who set up and ran a ‘ricestaurant’ for Tilda to capitalise on freestyle cooking trends from one core ingredient kick off,; who built and ran an authentic New York style bagel shop to revamp family breakfast thinking; who have struck commercial deals with the likes of Harvey Nicks and Dirty Burger for our creative client concepts; and who this week have launched a ‘taste not waste’ café with longer lasting cream Elmlea for ‘Stop Food Waste day’ as well as landing a swathe of Games of Thrones themed coverage for our life sized House of Stark cakes for (the House of ) Stork. Not to mention smart campaigns for clients with legendary chefs, front of camera talent, and influencers such as Theo Randall, Judy Murray, Jamie Laing, Ruby Bhogal and Gino D’Acampo.

All without losing sight of what matters to you as an individual. This opportunity is about you as much as it is about us if you are thinking of changing jobs.

So you’ll be busy, not bored. As part of our Project 2020 you’ll get to develop those areas of your job where you have most affinity and interest (recent promotions have focused on news, media relationships, travel and influencers as specialisms). You’ll have the proactive remit to get out and carry on forging media and influencer relationships rather than be desk bound. You’ll be client facing and important to both long term and new client names for us. New business leads you bring to the table will be rewarded. We have a Cornwall office we will encourage you to visit and work from. We’ll listen to what you want to add to our weekly drinks trolley. And you’ll be able to indulge your love of food as the fabric of our everyday office conversation, opinion sharing and Friday quizzes. And bring your playlist A game to suit the democracy of Sonos.

We like our hires to come with opinions on life; an attitude to media outreach and relationships that is strategic rather than scattergun; questions and suggestions; and a zip in your step. Cinnamon buns are optional but advisable.

Exact portfolios tend to be fitted to the individuals we hire, but current clients include: Highland Spring; New York Bakery; Tilda; Bertolli; Stork; Gu; Mazzetti Balsamic Vinegar; Allied Bakeries; Starbucks; Tetley; Elmlea; Gin Mare; Donald Russell; Monin; Exclusive Hotels; Arlo and Jacob; Villeroy and Boch.

If that’s a yes – we want to hear from you! To get in touch, please send your CV to Katherine.clark@wildcard.co.uk.
