Account Director – international strategic comms, with a focus on fascinating geopolitical issues

My client is an international communications consultancy which services high profile clients via a global network of offices. But unlike many global agencies it has a very fluid feel to it. It has fostered a genuinely entrepreneurial environment and a flat structure offering people room to progress their careers.

The London office is looking for a talented strategic communications consultant around Account Director level. The focus is on working at the sharp end of issues and reputation management, often advising C-suite clients.

The agency sits very much at the strategic, advisory end of the comms spectrum. Nearly all their work is international, and everything they do is rooted in fascinating geopolitical issues. There is also no particular sector focus – the agency tends to work with big global businesses, organisations and governments who are often keen to use EMEA as a launch pad, and do lots of international cross selling.

The team looks for people who are confident, brave and up for a meaty challenge. Intelligent, critical thinking people, who are also proven hard workers.

Overall this is a cerebral environment which offers employees the opportunity to take control of their own career development.
