Q: What is it like working as a Public Relations (PR) Manager?

Public Relations (PR) Manager in Perth:
Pros: I like that I am able to work individually and within a team. My manager leaves me to lead my own work and takes on my recommendations. The role has also allowed me to grow as leader within the marketing team.
Cons: Lack of understanding of public relations and my role. Being across whole of business also means missed opportunities as I am only one person managing the communications for a whole business that has a number of portfolios and sub-brands.
