Public relations is an exciting industry that will see you work with a multitude of different clients. When starting out in the PR industry, most young professionals will begin their career as a Junior Account Executive.
At Voice, our brilliant Junior Account Executive is Katie, a graduate from Exeter University with a degree in History. After first joining the Voice team on work experience, Katie’s superb work ethic led her to joining the team full time. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a Junior Account Executive, read on to see what Katie enjoys so much about her role at Voice…
“No two days are the same and I’m always working on something different”
Katie is exactly right. Everyday is different and she might spend her morning drafting social media content for clients or drafting press releases and in the afternoon Katie could be liaising with the media or arranging press opportunities for clients. Katie particularly enjoyed designing newsletters for a client and welcomed the opportunity to explore a more creative side to the role. That is the great thing about working in PR, you never get bored!
“I enjoy getting to know my clients and working alongside them”
As a Junior Account Executive, Katie spends time growing client relationships and working closely alongside them to help grow their brand. She’s already made a big impact on the clients she works with and it’s fantastic to see her build up a strong working relationship with our clients like Oltco, Chris Riley and Food Circle Supermarket to name a few.
“Exploring press opportunities for clients”
At Voice, we strive to help our clients reach their goals and objectives. In most cases, one of the main goals will be to help raise brand awareness with customers and across the media. Katie spends a lot of the time liaising with the media to help secure these opportunities and it’s an absolute buzz for Katie when she secures them!
“Getting to spend time in both Essex and Cornwall for work”
Another exciting dynamic for Katie’s working life is that she has the pleasure of working in both the Essex and Cornwall offices. Katie visited Cornwall back in September for client meetings with Oltco and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the coastline.
“I love being part of a company that is B-Corp Accredited”
At Voice, we are a team of change makers. Like the rest of the team, Katie is passionate about giving back to the environment, community and to those around her. Katie has always been a kind hearted and thoughtful individual, so she is proud knowing that she is part of a PR agency that is committed to championing social good.
“I enjoy our team walks and our team lunches”
Friendship is a big part of life at Voice. As the Essex office is based in the historic Layer Marney Tower, Katie loves being able to explore the grounds and go for team walks and lunches.
We just want to say a big well done to Katie for all her hard work and we love having her as part of the team.
