The firm is centered around three pillars: crisis and litigation communications, reputation management and business/political strategies and 100% of the agency’s work is global.
What’s key about this firm is that they advise at the highest level, whether that’s a Prime Minister, CEO or high level, prominent individuals. This strategic positioning means they can command very generous fees which has seen the business grow enormously in its first few years, with ambitious plans to double this year’s revenue from last year.
Size-wise, the team is approximately 15 and growing fast, so this is a fantastic opportunity to join at an early stage and be part of the growth story. Culturally it’s a very flat structure, with no egos or hierarchical atmosphere. Staff are employed heavily on cultural fit – personality is valued as it’s a great team environment where everyone gets on and is collegiate.
The Role – Director / Associate Director
