  • Jelly Drops is a socially driven start-up focused on meeting the nutritional needs of people that struggle to maintain a regular diet. Inventor Lewis Hornby was first inspired to create the Jelly Drops product when his grandma Pat, who had dementia, was struggling to hydrate. The story resonated with people all over the world and our bright, fun and eye-catching brand went on to receive global press coverage and multiple awards. This incredible viral story led to large waiting lists in many territories leading to Jelly Drops’ UK launch in 2020, and the US in 2022.

    We are now looking for a PR Manager to establish and develop a dedicated in-house PR function - building on the Jelly Drops story to date to find new ways to spread awareness of our unique and novel product. It is a unique opportunity for a passionate PR Manager as, supported by the wider team, you will lead on all aspects of campaigns and initiatives: from the top level strategizing and planning, to the day-to-day hands-on execution in order to increase brand awareness and earned media.

    At Jelly Drops we are passionate about creating inclusive and stigma free products to help all across society, particularly those that are underserved by conventional products, such as the elderly and people living with dementia. You will join at an exciting time, helping to maximise the impact we have as we expand to Canada, the EU and beyond, while also working on amplifying new product launches and generating fresh campaigns to continuously grow the Jelly Drops brand.
