A little bit about Attention Media

We’re a marketing and PR agency based in Exeter with clients in the South West, London and Bath. We’re a fun loving, hard working, creative bunch that like nothing more than representing ambitious, dynamic businesses. We specialise in marketing some of the best names in property and construction and restaurants and pubs (it’s a hard life).

A full-service agency, integrated communications is what we’re all about – from crafting creative PR, to delivering multi-faceted campaigns for our clients, we love recommending the right tactics to put our clients in touch with their core audiences and ultimately, impacting the bottom line.

We’ve listed the skills we’re looking for and the type of person we think will enjoy working with our merry team and our band of lovely clients – if this sounds like you, then please drop our MD, Sarah Jepson, a line.

A little bit about the type of person we are looking for…

A key understanding of marketing trends – and in particular digital and online – is key to this role.
