We are recruiting again, looking for an SAE or AM with recent, eye-catching B2B tech PR experience. If you see yourself as ready for more responsibility with clients and can show us how dedicated you are to hitting targets, we’d love to hear from you.
Mantis is growing fast, and we need articulate, independent thinkers who thrive on delivering. Furthering your career with us would suit someone who never fancies settling for an average life. We encourage you to thrive in and out of work.
You will be an integral part of our team, working in teams of between three and four people.
You’ll be used to running day-to-day communications with clients and the media, and comfortable with picking up the phone and making things happen. At this level, you’ll be implementing our strategies as well as helping create them, so we’d like you to have experience of:
- Attending and taking an active part in client meetings
- Meeting the media and other influencers face to face
- Executing customer relations campaigns
- We don’t want you just accepting our take on things, especially when it comes to the media. We want to hear about the opportunities and contacts you think are worthwhile, too.
It goes without saying that your ability to report, analyse success and communicate that back to clients is decent. Although, rest assured, you won’t be the one stuck with all the reporting – we’re not that sort of agency.
You’ll also be part of the team that delivers our Mantis insights such as perception and awareness audits, research and competitor analysis, and training in areas such as crisis simulation and stakeholder communications.
We are headquartered in Paddington, London, with an office in Bristol.
Why join Mantis?
Mantis is a communications company. We specialise in creating stakeholder dialogue for, and increasing the profile of SME technology companies that target the public sector.
We help technology providers tell stories using clever content circulated through the right channels, to reach the right people.
Founded a decade ago, over the last 11 years we have evolved from a small group of technology PR specialists to a wider team of engagement and marketing campaigners, storytelling and issues management talent.
We have 10 staff, working in locations across the UK, and our office is in Paddington, London. Mantis has been profitable since its existence and currently has 17 international and UK clients.
Mantis salary and benefits
The salary range is competitive, and dependent on experience. We’re very open to considering any flexible working patterns.
Other benefits to working with us include:
A Macbook air, an iPhone and calls, printer and other associated technology, plus help with your utility bills as part of your home office.
Good holiday allowance plus additional day’s holiday on birthday and anniversary
Regular in-house and external training.
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 services and web applications, 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, and social care policy, or think they’d like to become an expert under our guidance. Any healthcare technology experience would be greatly favoured.
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.
