DEVELOPING AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS

CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS, PR & PUBLIC AFFAIRS: RECRUITMENT

We are a specialist firm focusing exclusively on mid-to-senior-level appointments in Corporate Communications, PR and Public Affairs.

We work hard to earn the trust of both our clients and candidates – identifying and assessing talent across all geographies and in all industry sectors.

Knowing our profession as well as we do enables us to add real value to both client and candidate – from finding the right talent for the right position, to ensuring a successful transition, to following up with the aftercare you need.

When conducting executive recruitment, we can also provide full market mapping, as well as salary and title benchmarking.

CONTRACTORS & SENIOR INTERIM MANAGEMENT

We provide temporary contractors (to cover for maternity absence and extended sick leave, or simply as extra hands for a key project) across a wide range of communications disciplines. These contracts usually last from three to 12 months, delivering experienced practitioners who have been specifically sourced for their adaptable skillsets and ability to hit the ground running.

Senior Interim Managers are hand-picked by us to bring a particular specialty to your team (e.g., for integration projects or IT-system rollouts) or to manage executive-level projects (e.g., organizational change or management transitions). Our Interims can be in place within a matter of days: We know how essential that is when you have sudden time constraints.

We source only the highest calibre professionals, priding ourselves on our speed and efficiency. That means each person has been rigorously vetted and briefed in advance, to ensure they deliver value to you from Day One.

COMMUNICATIONS TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

We offer communications training tailored to your needs, enabling you to upskill your team and enhance overall performance levels in pursuit of business goals.

Training can be delivered in-house or virtually (for remote teams) on a variety of topics including: internal communications; better business writing; change communications; communications planning; and social media strategy.

INSIGHTS

- Shaping our Industry -

CONTRIBUTING TO THE INDUSTRY VIA RESEARCH

In today's business climate, success means being able to balance a broad global perspective with a deep local knowledge. Nowhere is that more true than in Asia, where many of us have to work across a dozen fast-changing markets at once.

Our Partners have deep roots in their individual communities, regularly leading round-table discussions to develop the profession at the local level. But we also conduct extensive, industry-leading research across the whole of Asia, helping communications functions stay abreast of the latest trends and benchmarks in the region.
