We are looking for a Consultant/Senior Consultant to join the Brussels team, starting in January 2018. The successful candidate will work primarily on a project for one of our Government clients. We expect the successful candidate to have relevant professional experience and to be able to hit the ground running. We are in particular looking for candidates who have experience running high profile social media accounts.

Successful candidates will be bright, motivated, understand UK and EU media and politics, and be capable of working well under pressure. You will be able to quickly grasp a range of complex policy and client issues. You will be focussed and committed, with excellent writing and analysis skills, the ability to work well in teams, a creative mindset and desire to grow with the business.

The roles advertised are full-time, fixed-term three to six-month contracts. A fixed-term role could lead to consideration for a long-term appointment or permanent employment with the company.

Proven experience of working in client teams and contributing to the development and delivery of communication strategies, with a particular focus on social media.
