Discover our approach to hiring public affairs professionals

Government, public and private sector organisations rarely align on key issues.

Public affairs specialists work to influence policy change, advocating for the most favourable environment for their sector or organisation. This might be from a position within a company, charity or as part of a trade body, which seeks to further the interests of an industry as a whole.

As organisations pursue growth strategies in an environment comprised of disruption, regulation, increased public scrutiny, and political uncertainty, public affairs professionals are on-hand to help navigate the landscape. Public affairs specialists in this sector are required to build and manage relationships with key stakeholders within Government Departments, arms-length bodies, and Parliament to raise awareness of key issues.

Successful public affairs specialists are agile, with the ability to assimilate and communicate policy. These professionals will have strong interpersonal skills, enabling them to build relationships with decision-makers and maintain a network of trusted contacts.

Our specialist public affairs recruitment consultants understand the value of aligning decision-makers with strategic placements. Working with our clients, we implement an in-depth search of the market to secure and place the right candidate.
