We are currently seeking a PR and Communications Apprentice to join the EDGE Creative team. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your digital marketing experience at the heart of a fast-paced, integrated agency through direct exposure to both national and international campaigns across a range of industries.

  • Analytics: You will monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of PR campaigns and measure their impact while conducting research for the team and/or clients.
