We are looking for skilled and motivated communications specialists to join our team and work on world-class projects that make a difference. To give you an idea of what we do, in the past month Mettle: generated a major feature in The Economist for the National Composites Centre, as well as created case studies, short films and worked with its agency to create a new website; sent ITN’s science editor to Chernobyl to see UK researchers using drones to map radiation; advised leaders of the UK’s space sectoron messaging around Brexit and a Sector Deal; staged a media briefing at London’s Royal Institution for the National Centre for Nuclear Robotics; organised photo-shoots in Namibia, Burkina Faso and Mozambique; created short films and animations; and started designing a pavilion at the COP25 climate conference in Chile, all for the NDC Partnership, a major international organisation helping nations achieve their climate change goals and sustainable development.

Working with us

We work on a film production model, with a regular group of specialists coming together in different combinations to deliver projects.  Our core team has worked together for over 10 years. If you have done your time client-side or in agencies, and now want a greater degree of flexibility, this could be right for you; but it does however require a well - organised self-starter. We work from different locations but are close-knit and supportive.  Mettle is known for being smart, creative and good to work with.  Above all, we deliver outstanding results, not just because it’s in the contract, but because that’s how we’re wired. There are easier gigs in PR, but few as interesting, varied or rewarding.

What we're looking for

Experienced freelance PR professionals who know what a story is, can write well and enjoy pitching ideas to journalists – on the phone, not just via WhatsApp. With the nous, communication and interpersonal skills necessary to inspire confidence in clients and good-feeling in team mates. Mettle has regular work so this is a long-term opportunity.
