PR Account Executive (Consumer) - Borkowski

Join Borkowski, the PR agency that has been generating whacky PR stunts since the 80s. Borkowski is founded by Mark Borkowski; the mastermind behind the Thorntons (real) Chocolate Billboard, Tower Bridge's Giant Hot Air Balloon stunt and the notorious Gift Wrapping a Helicopter campaign for Harrods.

About the agency

Founded by the PR mastermind Mark Borkowski, Borkowski’s philosophy was informed by P.T. Barnum and the ‘Stuntsters’ of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

They’re a communications agency famous for building fame, with a groundbreaking reputation in publicity and corporate affairs. They take on high-risk, high-reward work, and are hyper-focused on creating impactful, agenda-setting stories.

From iconic PR stunts for big consumer brands and reputation management for Hollywood heavyweights to crisis comms for some of the UK’s most sensitive issues, Borkowski provides unparalleled opportunities for individuals seeking a dynamic and exciting work environment.

Borkowski's campaigns are creatively ambitious, intellectually stimulating, and designed to get everyone talking. This is an agency where you’ll dive into the thick of the action, experience something new every week and deliver career-defining work.

Launched in 2022 by Mark Borkowski and James Lovell, Feejee Mermaid is Borkowski’s PR stunt and live event business.
