Please note that due to an overwhelming response, we are no longer taking applications for this role. However we’re always happy to receive prospective CVs for consideration for future opportunities at:

Our Leicester-based team are on the hunt for a new pup to join them as a PR, Social Media and Communications Executive, working in our leafy Leicestershire office based just outside of Desford (LE9 9FL).  The role on offer provides an awesome opportunity for a graduate to take their first steps into a career in PR, social media and communications working across our pets, tech, professional services and consumer client portfolios.

We’re looking for someone who’s quick-to-learn, with a proactive attitude. You’ll have the chance to develop your skill set delivering award-winning communications campaigns; from engaging social media content to thought-leading publicity. So you’ll need an inquiring mind, bags of creativity, strong copywriting and organisational skills.  In return you’ll get to work with an exciting portfolio of clients who include Hi-Life, ChuckIt, Autarky, Aqua Park, Bristan, IOSH, Leicestershire NHS and the Energy Technologies Institute.  There is never a dull moment as you juggle the diversity of working on the UK’s biggest inflatable water park, a pedigree pack of pet brands and a healthy injection of health and wellbeing clients.

We’ll be offering a salary which will be subject to degree and work experience, but starts from £18,000.  Additionally we offer an awesome package of benefits which includes 3% match pension, 24 days holiday, PRCA / CIPR professional membership, together with the option to pick from a package of additional perks which include Student Loan Repayment, Healthcare, Gym Membership, Eco-Car, fully expensed iPhone or Company Loan. We’re a work hard / play hard team, so to top it all we also offer Perkbox, an everyday rewards package which means you can grab a free coffee every week, free cinema ticket every month, plus discounts on everyday purchases, so even when you’re not at work, as a spottydog team member you can reap the benefit of being part of the pack.

If this sounds like the role for you please send your CV and covering email to by 30 June 2019, although the application date may close earlier if we are fortunate to find the right candidate ahead of this date.

Please also note the same role, but working with a different set of clients, is on offer within our Birmingham office which is based in the city centre next door to Grand Central station. If you are able to commute to either of our locations easily we are happy to consider candidates for roles on offer in both of our offices. If you just wish to be considered for the role on offer in Leicester, please state ‘LEICESTER ROLE’ in your email application.

Due to the rural location of our Leicestershire operation, together with the frequent need to visit our clients across the UK it’s essential that you can drive to be considered for this role.
