Creative Artists Agency (CAA) is the world’s leading entertainment and sports agency, with 22 global offices, including Los Angeles, New York, London, Munich and Beijing. Founded in 1975, CAA represents many of the most successful professionals working in film, television, music, theatre, video games, sport, and digital content, and provides a range of wide strategic marketing and consulting services to corporate clients. We are uniquely positioned to help brands across all aspects of what we call ‘pop culture’.
Within CAA Sports Consulting we have 200+ specialists working with over 35 leading brands. In London our clients include Allianz, Betfair, Bose, Jaguar, Land Rover and Prudential. Our service offering spans across strategy, activation, comms, digital, events & hospitality.
There is also a unique culture within CAA – for a global agency it has a ‘small agency feel’, with a great sense of teamwork, ambition, empowerment, energy, entrepreneurialism and fun.
We have an exciting opportunity for a talented PR Account Manager to join our Communications team working as the designated Press Officer on one of the agency’s flagship accounts, Jaguar’s Formula E team, Panasonic Jaguar Racing.
Jaguar, a longstanding client of CAA Sports, is approaching the end of its second season in Formula E – the Electric Street Racing Series. CAA has been appointed to refresh and reenergise its communication strategy to excite and engage fans with Panasonic Jaguar Racing (PJR).
Jaguar’s ambition is to become the number one team in Formula E and position themselves as the leader in premium electric battery vehicles. Our approach is to focus on the team’s innovative traits to spearhead a bold, newsworthy and creative PR & Communications programme that shares the visions and aspirations of the brand & team.
The role requires a strong communications all-rounder at Account Manager level with experience in a similar press officer role, managing media operations on the ground, producing and distributing news reports live from event and supporting the overarching ‘Race to Innovate’ PR strategy.
Due to the niche nature of the role, motorsport experience is preferred. We are looking for someone with exceptional written and organisational skills, a proactive approach to client servicing combined with a solid understanding of the ever-changing media landscape and PR disciplines within it. This person’s character should match that of the teams – passionate, professional and innovative.
Our objective is to create exciting and unique content and coverage to our target audience; media, markets and fans.
Travel overseas is a key requisite of the role and attendance on race weekends is mandatory.
