Job Description and Requirements:

Brilliant opportunity for a Junior PR Account Executive to join a top events management and PR company in Jordan! We are looking for an innovative individual with beginner, or entry-level experience in PR and working with the media, to join our fast paced, creative team.

iJordan, the Kingdom’s first multidisciplinary Events Management Company, is now growing its PR division to bring its clients – including corporate entities, NGOs, governmental establishments and independent campaigners – a one-stop-shop experience to satisfy their communications, events and PR needs.

As a Junior PR Account Executive you will play a vital role in supporting iJordan’s PR and media departments. The work of the Junior PR Account Executive is an entry-level position, with candidates preferably being either graduates in a communications or media discipline, or journalists and marketing professionals looking to change career. A Junior PR Account Executive covers much of the day-to-day work on around four to five accounts, including liaising with key journalists and other media professionals, as well as drafting press releases.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities: You will be part of iJordan’s creative culture, which places a great emphasis on team-playing, out-of-the-box thinking, and professional development.

Key tasks include:

  • Drafting press releases
  • Building relationships with journalists
  • Monitoring the success of a campaign and collecting press clippings
  • Providing materials for press conferences and client meetings

Key attributes of a Junior PR Executive:

  • A degree in media, journalism or communications is an advantage but not essential
  • An understanding of the media – this can be either through personal interest, or work experience as a journalist in a media setting
  • Good written and verbal communication skills, in both Arabic and English
  • Excellent networking skills and a confident manner
  • Creative thinking
  • Attention to detail
  • Willingness to learn and evolve in a fast-paced environment
  • A team-player
  • Strong work ethic, i.e. someone who really cares about the quality of his/her work
