Senior PR/Communications Manager EMEA

Quartz is Atlantic Media’s ambitious and fast-growing global business news brand. Our mission is to create high-quality global business journalism that thrives in the digital age.

 

We seek a senior PR/Comms manager to specifically help bring Quartz’s brand in the UK and EMEA region to the next level of fulfilling that mission. We want to reach more people, more frequently and in more places.

 

What you’ll do:

—Lead the next phase of Quartz’s EMEA communications strategy in collaboration with Quartz’s communications team in the US. In partnership with the EMEA management team and communications colleagues, develop a strategy that maps to our ambitions for the next several years, including selecting our areas of focus, setting goals and milestones, resource planning, and following through on execution.

Proactively identify PR opportunities—and be ready to capitalise on them. Seek ways to regularly grow Quartz’s exposure and ensure that we’re primed to act on them. This entails:

  • Continuously pitching Quartz staff for broadcast appearances in outlets that reach EMEA-based audiences, handling the necessary logistics, managing preparation and research, and conducting follow up
  • Collaborating with leads in editorial, marketing, and sales to uncover and develop potential PR stories that are relevant to the EMEA market
  • Forging and nurturing relationships with journalists, bloggers, PR agencies, and other key contacts in the EMEA market
  • Leading PR planning and execution for EMEA-based launches, initiatives, and other major events
  • Supporting the awards submission process and prep for speaking engagements
  • Collaborating with leads in editorial, marketing, and sales to uncover and develop potential PR stories that are relevant to the EMEA market

— Empower our staff to readily, accurately represent the brand as needed. This entails:

  • Identifying opportunities for staff training in our London office (e.g., media training, panel participation, presentation 101)
  • Helping spokespeople to prep and practice talking points and interview approaches
  • Monitoring day-to-day PR activity in the EMEA marketplace
  • Providing up-to-date core communications materials to staff as needed

What you’ll bring:

  • An entrepreneurial, non-traditional approach to PR. You think in terms of the story and the audience, not the format or the traditions of an industry.
  • A diverse and ever-evolving network of journalists, writers, broadcast, PR agencies, and other key contacts with a EMEA focus.
  • Excellent writing skills. You treat every word with purpose and every sentence as an official statement from the brand.
  • Confident, comfortable in-person presence. You’re able to drum up excitement for your ideas and earn the respect of both your colleagues and external contacts.


This hire will report to the MD of EMEA and have a strong working relationship with both the Director of Communications for Quartz in NY and SVP of Communications for Atlantic Media and regularly collaborate with stakeholders across the company.  This role is based in our London office.

 

Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates.  In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.

1. Force of Intellect - Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.

2. Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.

 

Quartz UK is an affiliate of Atlantic Media and is the sole representative of Quartz in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). 

 

Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
