Scandi Kitchen seeks likeminded PR Manager

We have a great opening for an experienced PR Manager to join us, a progressive thinking food company and help shape our future PR and comms strategy across both trade and retail.

Food/FMCG experience a must. 3-4 days a week. West London. Brilliant for a self-starter who are equally comfortable with strategic thinking as creating content and chatting to media folks.

Read the full description below:

We’re that nice little Scandinavian Deli and Café in Central London, now in our tenth year. In this time, we also set up a countrywide web shop for Scandinavian groceries. We became a wholesaler, then an agent for other food brands. We wrote 3 cookbooks, then a book about hygge and also Scandi lifestyle book (North). We’re about to open our second café. We’ve had a few fingers in a lot of pies – and now we want to consolidate under one PR Manager’s umbrella.

Throughout the years, we’ve worked with some lovely PR agencies, but as we grow and take on more brands into our own fold, the time has come for us to find an in-house PR who can set the overall strategy and deliver the doughnuts. Someone who can really get to know us in order to get to the next stage in our plan to get our products in to the British dinner table.

In this role, you will set the overall PR strategy for all the areas of the business. You will be looking after the café brand as well as the retail (online as well as physical shop). On top of this, you will set the individual strategies for the food brands we look after (from crisp bread to cheese) and make sure the results are measured and reported. You’ll also be assisting the publishers with PR for the next cookbook (out in March) – as well as any requests for the books already published. On top of this, you will have input to the Marketing team with regards to our Social Media strategy.

On a day to day basis, you will be doing everything from writing press releases to contacting journalists, researching new possible PR avenues for all areas of the business, manage events, follow up on any leads and keep the whole PR machine running.

What your background looks like:

  • Food PR experience with good contacts an established UK network. This is essential.
  • Broad experience in all PR disciplines. In this role, you will do everything, so you need to have a good solid understanding on how all areas of PR works. You may be more experienced in one area than the other – but you really understand how it all fits together.
  • Can demonstrate good strategic PR skills, set the general strategy for the business and report back to stakeholders.
  • Can spin many plates at the time; manage stressful situations and work under pressure. You’re organised.
  • Hands-on experience, entrepreneurial spirit and thinking
  • Excellent written and spoken English.
  • Superb interpersonal skills
  • Creative thinker and problem solver – with bags of common sense and logic skills.
  • Feel the fear but do it anyway: happy to have a go and make it work when it counts.

This role is approx. 25-30 hours a week and would suit someone who is available during school hours or maybe 3 full days a week. We can be flexible in the approach to this role for the right person, although the day-to-day role is based in our office at Park Royal (NW10 7QQ) with some press meetings at our café in Central London (this is not a work-from-home role). We are open to this role being a direct employment or invoiced.

We need someone to start as soon as possible, so we’ll interview until we find The One. Please send your CV and cover letter to bronte@scandikitchen.co.uk.

Any questions pre-application, do ask. We’ll be happy to explain the role in more detail.
