Harwood Levitt Consulting delivers strategic counsel for both Fortune 500 companies and the NGO community. We are looking for a Public Affairs Manager to work on several new projects, in particular in the healthcare and environment areas. You will be the key contact on a multi-client portfolio, leading projects, and balancing competing demands. You must have the ability and desire to grow a business unit, be comfortable managing small teams of 2-4 people and be able to proactively build solutions on complex projects. A track record of successful client relationship management is essential.

  • Planning: Deliver workable public affairs strategies and plans supportive of client goals underpinned by solid rationale, models and thinking

  • Persuasion: Present your ideas to maximise visual impact and clarity in front of senior NGO and business leadership during workshops or other high-intensity settings
  • Finance: Oversee budgets and client accounts
  • Integrity: (probably the most important) Earn trust and put others first


  • Project management experience: Successfully manage a portfolio of clients and multiple projects, meeting client expectations and maintaining a high-quality work product
  • Ability to think critically and solve problems: Proven track record of finding solutions to complex public affairs issues and ability to communicate them effectively
  • Entrepreneurial mindset: Proven record of initiative
  • Minimum 3 years’ experience: preferably with client / stakeholder relationship management
  • Knowledge of large organisational behaviour: Experience working in cross-functional and diverse teams
  • Knowledge of an industry sector: Deep knowledge of health and / or environment sectors is a strong asset
  • Comfortable with ambiguity: Able to find a solution to achieving goals without precise instruction on getting there
  • Excellent spoken and written English: Other languages desirable

Starting date: As soon as possible.
