This independent, global, strategic communications consultancy has one of the most prestigious reputations in its space. With approximately 10 dedicated practice areas, they are a communications powerhouse who work with some of the world’s leading companies to provide expert advice to address their most pressing communications and business challenges. The agency is a full service shop, providing its clients with a comprehensive view of strategic communications that leverages its integrated suite of services, including financial communications, corporate reputation, transaction communications, ESG communications and public affairs in all the major markets around the world.

With this agency, you get the best of both worlds: the atmosphere, resources and benefits of a global conglomerate combined with the close knit, sector team that you’ll work in. Each team is around 20-30 people, made up of people who are incredibly talented and passionate about what they do.

The team you will be joining is the Financial Services team which is the leading FS advisory in the UK, boasting an enviable client list of instantly recognisable including banks and investment banks, insurers, asset managers, private equity companies, hedge funds and governments.

Culturally the company and team is corporate “with a small c” – it’s a fast paced, busy team with a prestigious client list, but one where flexibility is enabled. At present, the offices are open to people who wish to go in but home/remote working is supported for those who don't wish to venture in.
