Public Affairs


Public Affairs

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. Specialists in this sector are required to form, build and manage relationships with key stakeholders, policy makers, parliamentarians and ministers.

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 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.

Through our understanding of the industry, we develop core partnerships within our network to produce high quality candidates each time.
