We are a small but fast-growing ambitious team, passionate about driving positive change for society and the environment. Our clients share this vision and include charities, NGOs, and commercial companies looking to do business in a way that means better outcomes for all.

  • Supporting account managers to deliver for clients pro-actively
  • Working closely with the senior team to identify ways of using the media to influence public opinion with the end result of changing the law on environmental and human interest campaigns

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Two years’ in agency experience or three years’ experience in a similar role – ideally on some consumer-facing work
  • A passion for teamwork with strong communications skills and the ability to form effective working relationships with colleagues, clients, partners and suppliers
