About LexRex

Our values are Excellence, Energy and Balance. We strive for excellence in all areas
of the business, we bring energy to everything that we do, and we want balance across our professional and private lives.

Our offices are in Bollington, Cheshire. We undertake some UK travel, rarely overnight and usually limited to the North and London.

Working hours and location

Full time role, flexible working and part-time working considered. One day per week minimum (and depending on experience) will be spent in our office in Bollington, Cheshire. We are planning for an office move closer to Manchester within the next 6 – 12 months.

Responsibilities and Duties

Account management
You will support the management of a range of client PR accounts, working closely with and supervised by our senior team. Your roll will include:

  • Social media: creating assets, drafting copy, scheduling posts, reporting.
  • Administration including desk research, preparing for meetings, preparing agendas and minutes, collating data and drafting monthly reports.

We have a relatively ‘flat’ management structure, so this role will report directly to the managing director.

Training will be provided on an ongoing basis, professional qualifications may also be available over time.

Qualifications and Skills

  • 28 days holiday per annum, pro rata plus bank holidays
  • Christmas closure
  • P/T and flexible hours available
