Beattie Communications today launched a service to provide in-house communications departments with temporary PR staff.
The agency is offering to supply temporary PR cover for maternity leave, long-term illness, an extended holiday or an exceptionally busy period.
Gordon Beattie, chairman of Beattie Communications, said: “We can supply PR temps for short periods or longer periods and we can supply temporary PR staff at all levels of seniority from account director to account executive.
“And with a network of eight offices across the UK we can supply PR temps to virtually any location in the UK.”
Beattie Communications is even offering to supply sector specialists with experience of working in a range of industry sectors including retail PR, travel, health public relations, professional services and finance.
Beattie continued: “With us you get peace of mind knowing that your temporary member of staff has already proved their worth as part of the vibrant Beattie Communications PR team.
“As you would expect with Beattie Communications, we keep things simple, so when it comes to billing we charge our temporary PR staff out at cost plus 30%.
“Unlike recruitment agencies, there is no commission to pay with Beattie Communications and we can have someone at a client’s desk within 24 hours of receiving a request.”
The London PR agency has offices in Essex, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Falkirk.
