Coincover – PR & Comms Executive

Company – Coincover

Job Title – PR & Comms Executive

Location – Cardiff

Contract – Full-time, Permanent 

Salary – Competitive 

Perks – Yes (Pension, flexible and remote working and more)


Coincover are looking for a PR & Community Executive to develop our PR & Comms plan and goals in key regions across our three key segments.  You’ll be responsible for leading the effort to build strong relationships with media contacts in the trade and crypto-talking consumer media to drive coverage and brand awareness. 

This will be a dynamic, yet challenging role with an all-new team on a rocket-fuelled growth journey which will suit someone who is focused, embraces change and wants to make a big difference in creating something completely new.  

What you’ll be doing:

  • You’ll lead the job of developing our PR & Comms plan and goals in key regions across our three key segments (B2B, B2B2C and Consumer)  
  • We’ll want you to play a vital role in bringing the outside word inside to help us stay ahead of this fast-changing space and ensure we achieve our goal of setting the safety standard in crypto.  
  • Managing and executing the full range of activities – from planning, messaging, content writing, sell-in and analytics 
  • Leading the effort to build strong relationships with media contacts in the trade and crypto-talking consumer media to drive coverage and brand awareness (and ultimately inbound requests)  
  • Raising the profile of our founders and ensuring we are getting inbound speaker and spokesperson opportunities to support the above in both trade and consumer media 
  • Managing external partners to ensure they deliver what we need when we need it. The nature of those suppliers will largely be determined by the gaps in the skills of who we hire 
  • Playing a lead role in driving our content strategy by helping us understand the key topics being discussed and enabling us to quickly respond to them 

What sort of person Coincover need: 

  • We are to a large extent a start-up and so this is a role for someone who is happy to build what they need to thrive and succeed – systems, processes and tools (including measurement) and that means you’ll need to be an organised self-starter. We’re a close team with huge aspirations so you’ll be expected to get stuck in -and be able to make a difference from day one! 
  • Someone capable of managing multiple projects and responsibilities 
  • You should either have crypto/ blockchain experience, or you’ll come from a consumer background with relevant experience from sectors that could include insurance, security, financial services or other similar industries. Please note: If you don’t have crypto/blockchain experience that’s no problem but you’ll need to demonstrate an existing interest in the space and a proven ability to simplify the seemingly complex. 
  • Ideally, you’ll have worked with the investor community and be familiar with the world of early-stage funding.  
  • It’s important that you have had experience in a fast-scaling or high/rapid growth organisation. It’s brilliant fun but it can be (let’s just say) “agile” and you’ll need to see that as being part of the fun.
