What it’s Like to Work at Koozai

The Role

We’re looking for an experienced Senior PR & Outreach Specialist to join our remarkable Earned Media team in Southampton. However, here at Koozai we welcome remote working, so you can work from wherever you are in the UK.

You will be expected to manage and implement PR projects, alongside the content team, that exceed client expectations and deliver amazing results.

Successful applicants will show a strong willingness to learn and use your initiative. You will have the drive and inclination to remain at the forefront of digital marketing, ensuring best practice marketing techniques are at the heart of everything we do. All candidates will be judged on their writing skills and attention to detail (we love that here).
