Join a winning team
Platform Communications is a rapidly growing, independently-owned B2B technology agency. We work with brands that shape our everyday lives – from “prop-tech” that makes it easier to buy a house to companies that enable live news, sports, and entertainment leaders to keep the world captivated, informed, and connected.
We are proud of our friendly, collegiate team culture and offer excellent work-life balance, including flexible working hours and a hybrid office/home working policy.
As we continue to grow, we are looking for a Junior Account Executive to join us with an eye on taking the first step in their PR career.
You will have the chance to develop your abilities in an environment that offers excellent on-the-job training and mentoring. You’ll be working with a senior management team that includes the previous head of Fleishmann Hillard Tech, senior director of Weber Shandwick’s Technology and division head at Hotwire. Collectively, they’ve led global campaigns for clients including Microsoft, Symantec, Qualcomm, Verizon, EA, Sonos and many more.
