KFC Recruitment for Senior PR Executive

Website KFC

Job Description:

This role is an unbelievable training ground – offering the unique opportunity to build a career and expertise that’s got everything from cheeky stunts and product launches to more substantive comms strategy in support of major responsibility areas. The unpredictability of the press office means no two days are the same… it’s the variety of agency but working for one awesome brand. No need to restrict yourself to the ‘box’ of consumer or corporate – this role offers you both.

Job Responsibilities:

  • You’ll also be the first point of contact for the press office team (run via our PR agency) – helping to manage issues and develop, craft and approve media statements.
  • You’ll need to be on the ball with monitoring social media and customer care to help us spot potential issues. We want to find someone with a natural instinct (a sixth sense, if you will) for scenario planning and anticipating what journalists are likely to ask us next.
  • As you can imagine, issues and opportunities don’t always present themselves between 9am and 5pm (as much as we wish they would!) – so we’re looking for a candidate who’s willing go the extra mile outside of these hours (within reason!).
  • You’ll sense when great PR opportunities appear, and be proactive in taking full advantage of them.
  • You’ll develop and maintain strong relationships with other departments in the business, and key individuals and teams at our various partner agencies. We want our Senior PR Executive to be an ambassador for raising the profile of PR within the UK business, acting as an in-house consultant on all things earned media, and helping our marketing team integrate PR seamlessly into their plans

Job Requirements:

  • Company and performance related bonus
  • Generous pension with up to 11% company contribution
  • Private healthcare with the option to increase to include family cover and extra dental cover
  • Annual holiday allowance starts at 25 days with the option to buy or sell up to 3 extra days per year
  • After 5 years’ service, annual holiday allowance increases to 30 days
  • Study support may be available for job-related qualifications
  • International career opportunities across Yum!
  • Pick n Mix Benefits, options include gym membership, health screening and travel insurance

Qualification & Experience:

  • We’re looking for personality and a natural PR instinct. Great judgment mixed with maturity, flexibility and resilience are the key qualities we’re after.
  • Enthusiasm and passion is a must! A mild inclination towards poultry might help too.
  • We’re looking for a team player who embraces the company culture, gets involved with the various initiatives (…rumour has it we have a free alcohol fridge!) and enjoys working in a team.
  • You’ll need to be someone who always remains positive and motivated, inspiring colleagues to maintain a similar attitude. You’ll see positive or negative feedback as constructive and a way to help you develop.
  • There may occasionally be stressful times with this role! We’ll need you to show patience, and be able to make judgment calls under pressure.
