    When recruiting for PR and communications roles, companies typically prioritise candidates who possess several key attributes. Firstly, looking for people who can seamlessly fit into the role and make immediate impact. Also having some relevant industry or sector experience is highly values as it demonstrates expertise.

Don’t forget to include end dates for each role and explain if it was a contract or interim position. Highlight your achievements—mention any impressive companies you’ve worked with or notable successes. Double-check for errors and keep it concise (no more than 4 pages). Lastly, make sure your contact details and current location are clearly listed, including a phone number for faster communication if you’re applying for urgent positions.

  • Essential skills for PR and Communications

    • Strong written capability, crucial even at VP level for creating high-level content.
    • Proficiency in crisis communications is a must-have.
    • Extensive knowledge of the media landscape and excellent media contacts.
