You will be working directly for our clients from day one, as a member of our monitoring team and as a consultant on client accounts.
We give our recruits experience across the business including public affairs, corporate communications and the built environment over their first six months. You will also benefit from our own training arm, Connect Training, which offers a range of training courses both to external audiences and our in-house team.
