What does an entry-level Executive do?

Although there is no guarantee of a job at the end of the programme, you’ll be equipped to enter the communications industry. A typical entry-level Executive will support teams and clients by providing analysis on media and digital media coverage, stakeholder opinions, and political and regulatory developments, as well as relevant trends and events. A good understanding of the client’s business, strategy and communication needs is critical. Execs use an appropriate style and tone for all communications with clients. They contribute to and sometimes lead the production of high calibre materials, showing high attention to detail. Execs also ensure the smooth running of projects and the delivery of premium client service by ensuring all logistics for client meetings and events are executed smoothly. Execs nurture a network amongst peers inside and outside their firm.
