About the job:

This is your chance to become part of Viva’s award-winning PR and communications team in Rawtenstall.

You will be working with a number of clients — we work on everything from charity campaigns through to PR and comms activity for some of the UK’s biggest advanced engineering companies.

 ▪           A good confident talker

*          Someone who can work under pressure and to tight deadlines

It would also be great to show:

 ▪           That you’re a team player

Start date:

We’re keen to get the role filled, by the right person, as soon as we can

– 25 days’ annual holiday plus additional holidays for long-term service

– 16 hours’ off a year for volunteering

– Family flexible hours
