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.

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.
