PRWeek is well established as the ‘bible’ for professional communicators and reputation managers around the world.

This is a new position on PRWeek as part of a strategy for the brand to provide deeper insight and higher value content for its audience.

The role sits at the heart of a highly talented, experienced and collaborative content team, which in turn is integrated into the business division of the UK’s leading independent publisher.

Main responsibilities

* To deliver market-leading research reports from initial conception to end product: generating ideas, collecting and analysing data and writing reports.

* Managing external contributors and other research staff to support production of the above

* To proactively seek out research opportunities, whether sponsored or editorially-driven.

* Liaise with third party data partners where appropriate

* To be a brand ambassador, gathering market intelligence, raising awareness of the brands’ research function, speaking at events

* To sit at the heart of PRWeek’s editorial team and produce compelling content for the title in print and online

* To support the commercial objectives of the magazine by liaising closely with the sales team and with commercial partners.

Examples of data-led products

Benchmarking services – e.g. salary surveys, Best Places to Work rankings

Trading information – e.g. listings of contracts won and lost, deal information through a new business monitor

Financial insights – e.g. detailed analysis of the financial performances of the leading agencies through an enhanced Agency Report

Trend information – e.g. developments in specific sectors (e.g. healthcare, technology etc) and disciplines (internal comms, influencer marketing ect) of the industry

Future Look – e.g. shape of the agencies of the future and implications of new developments/platforms

The bulk of these would need to be produced in conjunction with third parties but would be project-managed by PRWeek’s team.

* To maintain and build our database of research respondents and manage relationships with our core audience groups from an insight perspective.

* Be confident in commissioning and managing freelance writers, illustrators and other external resources to work on reports.

* Apply rigorous attention to detail both in written copy and in analysing data.

* Manage budgets associated with producing research and insight work.

* Contribute editorially to PRWeek
