Senior Consultant or Account Director

We’re looking for a first-rate corporate communications / PR professional with experience working in the real estate industry and a strong sense of entrepreneurialism.

SEC Newgate Birmingham office — Start date Sep 2021

Senior Consultant or Account Director

With 600 professionals working across six continents, we are relative newcomers to the Midlands, where there’s an exciting opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing team. Our work in the region is particularly focused on supporting clients from the real estate space, a sector where we’re already one of the largest players in the UK.

This exciting role couples working on some of our existing clients, which include the likes of Countryside, CBRE Global Investors, Gerald Eve, Vistry Partnerships and Cain International, with a strong new business and marketing focus to help grow our Midlands office.


In this varied role, no two days would be the same. Working across a portfolio of clients, predominantly from the property and housing sectors, you’d be advising clients on opportunities to raise their profile or protect their reputation, liaising with journalists, drafting content such as press releases, blogs and award entries, managing social media feeds, and running events. As part of a small but ambitious team in the Midlands, you’d also have strong involvement in networking, marketing to potential new clients, pitching and proposal writing, and recruiting new hires.

The person

If you’re a motivated self-starter with very strong writing skills, a collaborative approach, an established network of journalists and industry contacts in the Midlands, and experience of advising clients on strategic communications, this could be your opportunity to help shape the newest office of an established and dynamic global business.

The benefits 

As well as an exceptional salary and benefits package, we offer 30 days’ holiday each year (plus a day off for your birthday and a day off for charitable activity), as well as opportunities to work flexibly and be part of a fun, friendly and high-calibre team.
