The Red String Agency is a busy PR & Marketing company based in the heart of Perth City Centre. Working across Perthshire and into wider Scotland our aim is to deliver strategic, creative solutions for a broad mix of clients.
We also own and manage Small City, Big Personality, Perthshire’s only online magazine. This growing media channel burst onto the scene only two years ago and has developed into one of the area’s most popular digital platforms.
Due to growth across both businesses, we have an opportunity for an experienced sales person to further expand our Small City brand and work with the editorial team to develop opportunities for our partners, and interesting, high quality content for our readers.
The role will also involve assisting in research, sourcing materials for our clients’ projects and contributing to the team’s joint responsibility of office admin.
The successful candidate will have a friendly, outgoing personality and enjoy building relationships with new people. Experience in a sales environment is essential with preference given to those with a media sales background.
