About Berkeley PR


What is it like to work for Berkeley PR

Leadership
Leadership
The Managing Director of the business sits on the shop floor rather than hiding away in an office. He is hands on with clients and account teams and assists with day to day activities. This ensures an open door policy at all times to senior management, as he is approachable, known to all staff and trusted to help nurture new starters. He is a great example of how Berkeley PR nurtures talent. He joined as a Senior Account Manager in 2007 and within four years he had worked his way up to MD. The Deputy MD joined Berkeley first time around as a junior in 1996. She left in 1999 and re-joined as an account director almost a decade later, working her way up to Deputy MD in 2013.

In an industry where only 10% of staff work part time, Berkley PR support over 30% of their staff to work part time hours. The radio is on playing music that only the under 30’s know the words to. It is interrupted every once in a while by a ‘whoop’ or a ‘shriek’ as someone sees that they have secured a great piece of press coverage for their client, some of their staff are especially good at doing this. The highest paid 24 year old earns £29,600. It’s a young and dynamic atmosphere but a nurturing one at the same time. While the vagaries of the school run, the under 10s’ football squad and chicken pox may be alien to their cohort of young aspirational millennials, they benefit from the culture and the example set by the (mostly part time) senior team that a successful, hardworking career and a happy, balanced personal life can go hand in hand.

The company's quarterly offsite meetings are a time to relax and raise consciousness about the fantastic company they are all part of. Over the many years of running QRMs they have experienced a wide range of activities varying from making James Bond films in the grounds of luxury hotels including an evening Oscar ceremony, Watersports, Boat Trips along the Thames, trips to Marbella, Longleat, etc. This is a unique opportunity, within working hours, for staff to interact and communicate outside of the confines of the workplace.
