Does every day start to feel the same and no longer feel like you’re learning? Looking for a new challenge at a more integrated environment? Join this award-winning consultancy to become part of their incredible growth story.

Are you scratching your head a little over your next move and future career strategy?

  • Maybe you feel like you have stopped learning from inspiring senior leaders?
  • Are you feeling frustrated with how siloed your agency operates and wish to join a more integrated environment?
  • Is your role too media relations-focused and you’d like to broaden your skillset?
  • Perhaps you’ve gone inhouse and missed the variety and fast progression at an agency?

If so, this could be the opportunity you have been looking for:

  • No longer work in silos – you will be collaborating with colleagues both in the UK and internationally, in areas including corporate communications, capital markets, digital and creative content, film and motion, public policy, ESG consultancy, research and insight
  • Develop a broader range of skillset, leading on integrated campaigns that prepare you for a Head of Communications position in the future
  • Using your superb writing and content creation skills to lead teams to produce compelling content including op-eds, thought leadership reports, and social media posts
  • Giving you exposure to private equity/ private markets – clients include some of the most exciting PE firms

What we are looking for:

  • It is likely that you are a corporate comms Account Director looking for a broader role, or an inhouse PR manager looking to go back to agency life
  • You do not need to be a specialist in financial and professional services, but it is likely you have previous experience advising clients within these sectors
  • Previous experience in investment management/ private equity is highly desirable, but it is not a requirement
  • You will show confidence in running multi-channel programmes and not afraid to bring new ideas/ creativity to solve clients’ business challenges
