You've only got to look across the pond at Trump's political machine to realise the value of a good Media Relations expert… that person's been spinning so hard they've passed out on the floor!
Thankfully this role won't quite so challenging, but it will have a solid political alignment. This time working for a Consultancy who specialise in political campaigning, government communications, lobbyist work and financial communications on behalf of commercial organisations.
They're an international operation with a big presence in the US. Their UK arm is more fledgling and start-up in nature. But this also gives plenty of scope for variety in this opportunity. The London office tends to work in a highly collaborative fashion, with everyone from the MD down getting involved right from the strategic agenda, writing proposals and even new business opportunities too. So you will never be lacking support, and will have a really visible presence with key executive leadership too.
Being a Media and Communications Expert, your remit here will be a blend of strategy and execution. Dealing principally with media relations aligned to political and financial communications on behalf of international FTSE, Fortune 500 companies and Government operations.
Your role will involve the creation of a wide variety of communications pieces which will catch interest, sway public opinion or help handle crisis situations - be that through press releases, carefully crated Op-eds and media statements, or organising interviews with key media outlets.
You will really understand how to translate a media strategy into actionable, measurable results to advance the objectives of clients - both private and public sector based.
Your media connections will cut across all formats and mediums, including print, broadcast, radio and digital. Taking advantage of news cycles for the benefit of clients.
This is a role with gravitas and clout - handling the big, meaningful and challenging issues. One that needs someone who's able to step up to the mark, and can take over confidently in areas where your typical PR & Comms agency might fear to tread. Someone who gets what consulting is, and how it's successfully delivered to big businesses.
