Practice Area: Public Policy
Instinctif Partners is an international business communications consultancy, specialists in reputation, influence and engagement. We work with over 850 clients globally, from FTSE100 enterprises to SMEs just starting out on their journey. We are 450+ people in twenty offices in ten countries, working across six practice areas and a range of sector specialisms.
The Public Policy team helps clients understand and influence the debate on issues of public policy through engagement with Westminster and Whitehall, the media or councils and local communities. An organisation’s success can be materially affected by the views, actions and decisions of politicians, regulators, the media and civil society. Using government relations, public affairs and the media, we help clients influence stakeholder’s views, actions and decisions to create the best possible political environment in which to operate. We do that by understanding the client’s objectives, risks and opportunities, and facilitating informed debate with politicians, regulators, journalists and other stakeholders pertinent to their organisation. Everything we do with our clients drives their bottom line and furthers their corporate objectives. We don’t do politics for politics’ sake; we do politics for their business’s sake.
You will have several years of experience working with the media in a senior communications role. This will have given you a comprehensive understanding of the way the media works, including how to create and sell stories, leading you to be comfortable with tactical delivery for clients. You will have a range of excellent contacts, and experience of strategic thinking. This role will have a media focus, but experience in public affairs would be useful. Previous consultancy experience is desirable. As an Account Director, you will be responsible for handling client relationships and overseeing project work, as well as nurturing more junior colleagues. You will be expected to help search for new business and lead pitch teams.
