The company

Plaster is an expanding communications agency working all over the world but with roots firmly in Bristol. Our team of exceptionally talented people work closely with loyal clients we believe in. We specialise in the events and technology sectors meaning that we can quite often be found with journalists backstage at a festival, or launching a new technology on the other side of the world.

We are a dynamic, brave, forward thinking group of people, we believe in an integrated comms approach, meaning we don’t have a separate digital department, as social is part of our daily mix for every member of the team. We work as an extension of our client’s teams, knowing their ambitions and business plans and create tailored communications strategies that are perfectly in tune with their objectives.

Benefits

Great support, training, superb benefits and salary and the chance to work with an amazing team and clients

Person specification

Are you a Plasterer?

If you have a can-do attitude, love a varied timetable, have passion for writing, excellent communication skills and are a bit of a perfectionist, then you might just fit the mould.

Everyone at Plaster has their own distinctive style and personality but it’s a certain joie de vivre that glues us together. You’ll love the job more if you are passionate about the arts, music, technology and culture. Our events roster veers from air shows to art exhibitions, music festivals to venues. ​

We’re a digitally savvy bunch and we’re all passionate about good prose, a nicely written website and the perfect pun.
