We are PLMR

Welcome to the Careers Hub, where you can find out more about the opportunities available across the PLMR Group.

Everyone at PLMR is intelligent, creative, and hungry to learn more about the art of communications. To match this curiosity, learning and development is the biggest investment we make each year.   

Our learning and development support starts right from the moment you join PLMR. Whether you are starting as an Intern or Account Executive, or as a more established PR professional, we have a career development programme for you.  

We truly believe we have the most expansive learning and development offer of any communications agency with a clear focus on providing our people with the support they need to achieve their career aspirations.

Personal Development Budget 

In addition to the training programmes we have created, all colleagues also benefit from a personal development budget that they can spend on training to further enhance their knowledge and skills.  

Oxford SAID Business School

  • Oxford Executive Leadership Programme 
  • Oxford Women’s Leadership Development programme 
  • Oxford Digital Marketing: Disruptive Strategy Programme

Hannah Tait explains more about how the Said Business School course she completed has helped her advance her career. 

Coaching and Mentoring

Throughout a career at PLMR we provide bespoke mentoring and career coaching, tailored to your skills, experiences, and career aspirations.  

This includes sessions with our industry specific coach who has over 30 years’ experience in business and PR Agency leadership. These are private sessions where colleagues and their coach identify areas of development and work on these together.   

Through membership of the Global Communications Alliance, we also offer colleagues the opportunity to participate in an international mentoring programme. One recent participant, Jade Bennett, explains more about how the GCA Mentoring programme works.  

In addition to all the above, we run bespoke business-related programmes with our management and senior leadership teams, ensuring that we continue to grow the business, ourselves as a team, and our ambitions, purpose and values year on year.
