Are you looking for the next step in your career here at CUK? Well, we thought we’d highlight just one of the great internal job opportunities which is available to you right now…

We’re looking for a passionate, creative and motivated individual to join the P&O Cruises press office as a PR executive. This role is at the heart of our team and creates the foundations of all our media activity, and in return is an extremely rewarding role. You’ll play an integral part in the launch of our newest ship Iona arriving in May which is Britain’s newest, largest, most contemporary and most environmentally friendly cruise ship.

You’ll also have the opportunity to help us showcase our ships and destinations to national media and influencers, work and build relationships with celebrities and world renowned chefs.

Hear from our PR executive Nicoletta Cremona

For many of our Guests exposure to P&O Cruises starts with editorial coverage or through influencers’ content. However, often behind the scenes this coverage has been pitched, creatively shaped, and planned by the PR team to ensure exciting news is being shared, especially in a time when the cruise industry is evolving so much. This is why being a PR executive at P&O Cruises is an endlessly exciting role.

If, like me, you have the itch to travel, a creative mind and love to keep up with the latest news and social media trends, this is certainly the role for you. Being a PR executive is an incredibly varied role, it can involve picking up the phone and talking to journalists and influencers about potential opportunities to travel with us for a story or selling in news hooks about the latest company news, organising their press trips, or inviting them to attend exclusive events, such as our brand ambassador launch night with Gary Barlow.

I’ve helped plan the logistics of filming a secret sketch with Michael McIntyre on board a ship full of Guests, to writing press releases and factsheets for journalists, so strong writing skills, being flexible and organised are key skills to have. It’s hugely rewarding to be a part of the process in seeing such events come to life and whether it’s a piece of editorial coverage gained or a nationally broadcast television show I always feel proud to be able to say I was a part of making that happen.

It’s also an exciting time to be part of P&O Cruises as we launch the new ship Iona in just a few months, I feel very privileged to be involved in the future of this company, cruising and shaping what this looks like to newcomers and loyal guests.

I first came to P&O Cruises as a work experience student during my Master’s degree reading Corporate Communications for a two week period. After this, I was offered the opportunity to intern for a further two months, and during this time interviewed for the PR executive position and haven’t looked back since!

This role could either be an internal secondment or a full time permanent role dependening on the candidate. So, if you think you’ve got what it takes to join our team please send your C.V. directly to Jenny Hadley, PR Manager (
