International Media Relations Specialist – proactive and reactive comms for one of the world’s largest companies

I have been approached by one of the largest companies in the world, based in the Middle East, as they enter a major phase of growth and transformation. They are looking for talented professionals to join their international media relations unit.

Operating on the front lines of media relations, the unit is entrusted with safeguarding and building the reputation of one of the world’s leading energy companies. It’s the company’s primary point of contact for journalists and media outlets around the world, performing a range of media-related tasks involving global print, online and broadcast channels.

There is flexibility on the level of candidates, so if you are potentially interested I’d encourage you to have a conversation with me. However, I appreciate being vague never helps, so this as a rough guide they’re looking at 10+ years of experience in media relations, corporate communications or journalism. Previous experience of the energy, and oil & gas sectors, would be advantageous.

Previous experience as a spokesperson would be welcomed, while a proven track record in crisis communications is also an advantage.

Candidates must also be fluent in written and verbal English.

The roles comes with attractive salary and benefits packages, including housing and comprehensive relocation assistance where appropriate. This also includes generous support for family members, backed up by an exceptional standard of schooling.
