Further information

This is an opportunity to work on some of the most fascinating crises in the industry. By the very nature of their work, their successes go unnoticed  – their aim is to avoid bad press or at least try to put a positive spin on stories that would otherwise destroy their high-profile clients’ reputation. With clients from a wide range of consumer sectors (food + drink, FS, sport, technology) this talented and multi-tasking team has their hands full so an extra spare of hands is needed.

You will be an established Associate Director (or in-house equivalent) with a natural talent for spotting potential risks and demonstrable experience of devising first-class crisis communication strategies. You will play a leading role in the development of the global and UK client crisis work, and champion the growth and development of the team. Acting as a representative for the division, you will promote best practice relating to client service, and lead messaging / scenario-planning sessions with senior clients.

Due to the cross-sector nature of this team’s work, there is no ‘ideal’ background for this role however you will need experience of working on high-profile crisis-management projects for big brands. You’ll be a natural problem solver with a calm-under-pressure attitude, and will bring your own unique approach to problem-solving. Finally, you will be a mentor for this thriving team, able to lead by example and inspire your fellow team-members.

If you are the unsung hero this team needs, send your CV through today.
