We are the people who can make it work

Partner, London, Corporate
c £120,000 plus equity and significant bonus potential (REF. LB509675)

This strategic reputation management consultancy wants to hire an additional Partner who has the gravitas to counsel clients at the highest level. It specialises in providing high-end, strategic advice to organisations facing significant reputational challenges. These might include special situations, geo-political issues and litigation cases – often high-profile and invariably complex. Joining as a Partner, you’ll be expected to have the strategic ability to build new and profitable business through your extensive network of contacts, whilst also working with the senior team to develop the consultancy’s offer and range of services. You’ll sit alongside an impressive, intellectually strong peer group committed to delivering quality, stimulating work and there’s the opportunity to have a long-term stake in what is already a successful consulting business.

Corporate Deputy Managing Director, London, Corporate
£150,000 plus excellent package (REF. LB509497)

One of the leading agency corporate communications practices in Europe needs a skilled, senior-level corporate affairs specialist to take on the second-in-command position to the Practice MD. The nature of the work is a mix of campaign development and high-level advisory programmes, crisis and issues communication and broad corporate reputation management, so you’ll need to be confident in your ability to deliver across all of these disciplines. It’s a seriously big job, managing a sizeable team and a highly profitable revenue stream. The role is not just about delivering high-end, strategic communications consultancy to blue-chip clients, it’s also about running a business, so you’ll need to be both a consummate PR operator and a commercially-minded business leader.

Client Service Director, London, Consumer, Technology
c £85,000 (REF. LB509410)

Our client – a leading global consultancy – is seeking a skilled Senior Associate Director or Director to be the lead on one of their most high-profile consumer tech accounts. This role is very much akin to a Client Service Director and your task will be to ensure the client receives the best service and has the best agency experience possible. You’ll also drive account growth and up-sell services across different teams, you’ll have an explicit understanding of what good client service looks like, and work both strategically and commercially. You’ll need a particular strength in managing global consumer brands (including consumer or lifestyle tech brands). Demonstrable experience of advising senior and c-suite level clients and of owning relationships at this level in large-scale organisations is a must. This is a stand-out opportunity to work for a top-five agency alongside some of the very best PR practitioners in the industry.

Director, Corporate
c£140,000 (REF. LB509441)

The Corporate Practice of this global agency has grown significantly over the last couple of years. As a result of this success, an opportunity has been created for a Director to take over the running of one of its core client areas — industrials: manufacturing, utilities, transport, property defence, logistics, chemicals — basically, issues-rich sectors where reputation really matters. The brief, of course, is to build the practice through new business generation and the organic growth of existing clients. So, it’s critical that you have a passion for business development and the confidence in your ability to generate leads and win pitches. The scope of the Practice’s offer is broad — strategic counsel, thought leadership, crisis and issues management, stakeholder engagement and government relations — so you’ll need to be a consummate all-rounder.

Director, Digital
c £120,000 (REF. LB509041)

A new role has arisen to head up the digital offer and integrate it even further into this well-established (and much loved) agency. The current team of social media and digital experts are at the forefront of digital innovation and are recognised for their audience-led, reputation management campaigns. You’ll need to drive the consultancy forward within the digital sphere, from research and insights to strategy, execution and evaluation. You will also need a high-flying track record in communications, acquired either in agency or in-house, and will relish working in a fast-paced and demanding environment. This role puts you at the very heart of the digital offer as it develops, thereby representing a remarkable chance to shape its future. You will be a catalyst for innovation, a strategist and an ambassador for digital within the team and the consultancy as a whole.
