PR Manager – 12 Month Contract

On Site Full TimeRemote Full TimeCopenhagen, Denmark (Remote)Pleo

Two little letters that, when brought together in harmony, can unlock a whole new stratosphere for company growth and credibility.

In just over a year the in-house PR team have managed 10 market launches, engaged a pan-european comms agency and been able to deliver a fully rounded PR strategy that has in turn resulted in doubling coverage numbers quarter on quarter.

As a company we’ve got all the pieces in place…

  1. A great vision and brand purpose that drives us: to make everyone feel valued at work.
  2. A consistently best-in-class rated spending solution in Europe, helping companies unlock autonomy, trust and better work.
  3. Charismatic founders, C-levels, board members and team altogether, ready for comment, profile or the occasional byline.
  4. Some pretty big ambitions and growth targets.

One of the biggest growth efforts we’re shooting for this year is solidifying our brand across our European markets with a focus on Spain, France, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and UK. It takes a team effort to make this all successful, and we’re looking for someone who can slot into an incredibly busy proactive press office and keep the plates spinning so our existing PR manager can have some well-deserved time off whilst welcoming a little one!

This person will play a hands-on role over the next 12 months, supporting the EU PR Lead to drive key comms and PR projects, supporting the management of key external agencies and the day-to-day press activity.

The person who steps into this role will need to be confident, forward thinking and be able to adapt quickly to new environments and juggle multiple projects simultaneously.

  • Supporting the wider Brand & Comms and Content teams with newsjacking opportunities, blended PR efforts and global campaigns that tie into the core brand strategy
  • Co-ordinating media training for all those that you determine need it

  • Have experience selling-in stories for B2B/fintech either in-house,agency side or both – with 4-6 years experience

Why join us?

Working at Pleo means you’re working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we’ve seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending. Based on some pretty amazing Series C-round investment in 2021 we think we’re onto something big.

So, in a nutshell, that’s Pleo. Today we are a 800+ team, from over 100 nations, sitting in our Copenhagen HQ, London, Stockholm, Berlin, Madrid, Montreal, or Lisbon offices —and quite a few full-time remotes in 35 other countries! Being HQ’d out of Copenhagen means we’re inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don’t work in the office with us we’ll help you get up the best remote setup possible and will fly you in for our amazing team camps ✈️
