Brodcast Media Internship at Leading Broadcast PR Agency
Are you a recent graduate with at least a 2:1 or higher in Journalism, English, Media, Marketing or Public Relations with a desire to fast-track your career?
The Relations Group media and client teams are so busy right now and are looking to recruit a few enthusiastic and creative Interns to join our team!
Our paid Internship allows you to dip your toes in a variety of tasks - the responsibilities range from liaising with the media, generating ideas, researching news stories and stats, tracking coverage and media relations. The ideal candidate will have first class communication skills and a passion for broadcast and radio.
The candidate should embody the following attributes:
Personality: You will need to stand out from the crowd and put your personality into everything you do, whether that’s talking to media contacts like radio presenters, TV producers or news editors, or holding brainstorms with other colleagues.
A Natural Communicator: You will be spending a lot of time talking to seasoned journalists and producers so the ability to be articulate and eloquent is very important.
Phone Friendly: This is no place for anyone with a fear of the phones, it’s a busy environment and may require patching in on conference calls, networking and building rapport to influence broadcast journalists and radio presenters.
Enthusiasm: All team members at the Relations Group are passionate about what we do and we’ll expect no les from you. We want someone who has a fresh perspective and is creative and eager to learn and develop new skills.
Tenacious: In the early days you may spend lots of time contacting the media to sell-in news and feature stories and not all ideas and content will generate interest, therefore you need to be adaptable and tenacious – maintaining focus and drive.
Creativity: You will need to identify what makes a story interesting for different radio presenters, TV newsrooms or websites. Identify the hook and make it relevant to their audience and your ideas will turn into stories that will be broadcast to millions of people throughout the UK - week in, week out!
Calm Under-Pressure: This is a role where you need to influence people every day! You will have targets and deadlines so if you are easily stressed then please don't apply.
Research: You will need to create original content and may need to do desk research or track down new media contacts - so an ability to research quickly is essential.
Writing: There will be opportunities to write content for the company websites, blog, and media property platforms. You must have a keen eye for detail and a fresh outlook.
As a growing agency, we like to nurture exceptional talent; some of our best staff became full-time employees after an initial internship. You will be contacting radio presenters and producers offering them spokespeople for radio interviews, writing engaging blogs for our sites and social media, researching celebrity spokespeople and brainstorming ideas based on the current news agenda.
It will be a steep learning curve in the world of broadcast PR with a genuine opportunity to impress and be offered a full-time position. Enthusiasm and determination are more important than qualifications. If you have the right qualities, then get in contact.
