Director/Senior Director – Public Affairs

First we had Brexit, then the shock election result of 2017 which saw the Tories historic alliance with the DUP; and now Covid…you could arguably say that over the last few years, there’s never been a more interesting or challenging time to be in public affairs.

Benefits include a discretionary bonus, free breakfast at the in house café, cycle to work scheme, subsidised gym, season ticket loan and more.
