Main Duties

We are:

PR Dispatch is an online PR membership platform supporting product-based brands in pitching their products to the press by providing step-by step online learning, weekly troubleshooting calls, up to date press contacts, pitch templates, Facebook support and much more.

We have over 200 members which product areas include fashion, homeware, gifting, food, kids and beauty.

We exist to get our community of members on the radar of the press and to help them achieve continuous press coverage.

You are:

Someone who is passionate about small businesses and independent brands. You will go above and beyond to support our members and in turn keep customer retention high. You have incredible attention to detail, picking up on problems you might notice in our marketing and sales funnels whilst working on administrative tasks.

You have excellent written English and can articulate yourself well via email and will pick up the phone when required. You’re a team player and will celebrate the wins with us and our members.

You genuinely care about each of our members’ successes - and above all, you have an incredible work ethic and can solve any problem you might face.

Your role:

A unique opportunity to make a real impact in a small business that so many small businesses rely on. You’ll work remotely alongside a team of 4 that communicate via Slack daily (3 based in London, 1 in Devon). The hours are flexible and can be spread out over 5 days a week but we do expect enquiries and questions to be responded to on the same day. You’ll be an integral part of the team - our members will know who you are and rely on you (meaning a photo of you on the website is a must). Once trained, you’ll manage your own area (Customer service and platform admin) but we will be on hand to help should you have any questions.

As a team we love to catch up over a beer / wine / coffee, so depending on location we’ll meet up every now and again or have a social over Zoom.
