We are looking for a communications consultant – account manager or senior account executive level.
You will be an integral part of our team, working alongside fellow consultants, three senior consultants and supported by our leadership team. You’ll typically be managing up to five client campaigns.
You’ll be required to run day-to-day communications with our clients, implement our strategies for them, and manage the progress of their campaigns. You’ll be responsible for progressing client relationships with the stakeholders they have tasked us with influencing, which could include; traditional media, social media, customer programmes, public sector organisations, internal communications and partners.

The salary range offered is £29-£37k per annum full-time. We’re very open to considering any flexible working patterns.
Other benefits to working with us include:

Who you are
The right consultant will be able to show solid technology public relations experience – the issues, the media and social media landscape, and the technology itself. Our clients provide B2B tech, predominantly, so you’ll need to understand, and be able to demonstrate experience of working with complex tech. Think in terms of cloud, enterprise big data storage, exascale computing, hybrid networking and managed security.
As Mantis’ clients focus on providing tech to the public sector, we’re really looking for somebody who knows this industry too. We need team members who are either passionate about NHS transformation, Govtech SME targets and social care policy, or think they’d like to become an expert under our guidance.
Good media relationships are an absolute minimum requirement, because ours are, in the tech and public sector, second to none. However, it doesn’t stop there for us. Extra experience of working with other influencers, such as analysts, trade associations, and important government officials, NHS trusts, local government would be very advantageous.
Our clients expect digital experience, from writing for blogs to social media management, so some experience here would be preferable.
Client service is everything to us. The proven ability to ‘win over’ clients in a short space of time, so that they trust and value your input, will be pivotal in this role.
