Careers at Forster
Freelance and contract roles to support the Forster team
We’re on the hunt for media savvy account executives / managers to support the Forster team as trusted freelancers or on longer term contracts as our portfolio continues to grow.
You must be an ambitious PR professional with proven experience of generating and pitching ideas, writing both press releases and opinion pieces, and liaising with media in all its forms. Ideally you will have a live journalist contact book with business and social affairs correspondents of particular interest.
We are an award-winning and fast-paced agency, 100% focused on sustainability and working with brilliant clients to drive positive social and environmental change. We are a founding UK B Corp and published our Climate Positive Plan in January 2020 – anyone working with us must be interested in walking-the-talk on sustainable action.
We value and encourage diversity and difference and believe that we are a stronger company as a result. For contract roles you will be supported by a personal manager as well as the broad company values and culture to help you be your best, grow your skills and love the work we do together.
If hands-on opportunities are of interest, please send a blind copy of your CV (with your name, contact details and places of education removed) along with recent examples of media coverage you have generated to and tell us how you can help.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Exciting role at the forefront of social change and sustainability communications
Permanent contract, starting ASAP. Salary c£24-26k pro-rata, depending on skills and experience
We are looking for a super-smart Account Executive to join our team and help deliver stand out sustainability communications. You will be working across a diverse portfolio of business and charity clients, supporting the team with media outreach, new business research, project administration and more.
We are an award-winning agency, using creative ideas and specialist insights to deliver strategic communications, thought leadership and flagship campaigns. Our clients’ aims vary from delivering global sustainability initiatives to changing behaviour on issues such as mental health, the climate crisis, food, biodiversity and responsible business practice.

We are on the hunt for someone who is actively interested in what’s going on in the world and wants to deliver powerful PR that will make a difference.

We value and encourage diversity and difference and believe that we are a stronger company as a result. We offer flexible working hours, 25 days annual holiday (pro rata, excluding bank holidays) and an extra YOU day, plus a wide range of wellbeing benefits alongside tailored support to help you build your career.
To apply for this role and ensure we hire the most diverse team possible, please send a blind copy of your CV (with your name, contact details and any details on places of education removed), along with something (it could be a cover letter, but we’re communications agency so enjoy a range of media), to and tell us about why you are the perfect fit for us.
