The role

You’ll lead Prospa’s external communications and PR strategy during an extremely critical turning point. With a new brand approaching and a new product suite that takes us from a lender to a true partner for our customers – this role will see you drive our owned and earned messaging in market.

  • Cover print, broadcast and online media and monitor performance by reporting to key stakeholders

What you’ll need to succeed

  • You’re a seasoned PR/ Communications professional with either in-house or agency experience – across the full gamut from strategy through to pitching and placing stories.
  • Your storytelling and written communication skills are next level – clear, tailored and easy to understand.
  • You’re strategic in your thinking – you’ll need to be just as comfortable making snap tactical decisions and judgement
  • You’re cool as a cucumber under pressure, and you can juggle competing priorities under strict deadlines
  • You have an excellent ability to deal with a wide range of partners – journalists, other team members, company leaders, investors, and Prospa’s community.
