Irvine Partners is a full-service integrated public relations agency working across the UK, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and now Ghana. We serve a diverse international and regional client base across a broad range of industries.

We are looking for an experienced, dedicated, creative, and hardworking PR Account Manager based in Accra to work on some of the biggest brands in the world. The ideal applicant will have 3-5 years of PR agency experience.

The job includes, but is not limited to, developing strategies for clients, creating tactics and editorial calendars, writing pitches and editorial content, and liaising with clients. You will have to own client relationships and work with exceptional organizational and relationship skills to maintain these accounts.

You need to be a pitch demon, a truly outstanding writer, an excellent time manager, and understand that PR is all about client service. Digital and social media skills — and the ability to integrate these with traditional PR — are a bonus. 

This is a hit-the-ground-running position. You must understand the business of PR inside out and demonstrate a sound knowledge of the Ghanaian media landscape. A minimum of three to five years of relevant experience working across both consumer and corporate brands is required and you’ll be asked to back up your CV claims with writing and pitch tests.

This is a remote working position and, as such, the ideal candidate will need to be self-disciplined, accountable for results, and have the ability to work without constant supervision.
