Do you have an interest in current affairs and want to develop your understanding of communications? 

Analysts provide the research and analysis on which all our advice rests. They monitor discussion of our clients' interests among media and stakeholders. All analysts produce excellent written work for a range of audiences and channels. They make valuable contributions to internal and external meetings offering both their point of view and organisational skills.

  • Using tools such as Quid and Brandwatch to conduct high quality desk research and media analysis to inform our advice to clients.
  • Drawing insights from data and evidence to help identify how best to position clients and tell their story.
  • Reading widely about the issues clients are facing and the views of their critics as well as their supporters.

Supporting your client teams (typically two to three) to help execute the agreed strategy across a range of owned channels such as websites and social media platforms

  • Drafting compelling written content and support the delivery of significant communications moments including media briefings, FAQs, interviews and events.
  • Using organisational and project management skills to keep tabs on work that your teams need to deliver for your client.
  • Learning how to tailor the style and content of verbal and written communication to different audiences and channels
  • Using organisational skills to enable client teams to deliver high quality work in a timely fashion.
  • Giving (and receiving) regular feedback to people at all levels in the firm.
