Job Description

If you’re looking for a new challenge, and want to work on some interesting global sports clients and develop your career in PR within a fast growing agency, then this is for you! We’re looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic PR Executive to join our PR team, to work across the agency’s roster of cycling clients.

As part of the PR team you will provide assistance on campaign management, product launches and media outreach day-to-day.
