We are pioneers in integrated communications campaigns that help clients manage their reputation, improve their visibility and media coverage – and deliver global communications campaigns across multiple platforms.
We think our people are the best in the business. Our team brings together experience from the highest levels of the media, politics, and campaigning to work with global markets, challenger brands, NGOs, individuals and industry bodies.
We have an unrivalled strategic counsel and an integrated team experienced in delivering for high-profile companies and some of the most exciting entrants to the market.
Our journalistic expertise means we know how to spot and hone a story. Our team understands how to make a story work hard across every possible channel. We ensure the work we are doing is having the right impact with the right people.
We also provide expert advice and delivery in the digital world, taking in the complex interactions of social media.
Financial communications is a crucial discipline within Portland’s integrated offer.
We are looking to further strengthen our team by hiring a financial communications senior consultant, who will support our activities across a range of varied and high-profile briefs.
We want a self-starter, someone who is prepared to roll their sleeves up and proactively help grow the practice. You will be expected to work on listed clients’ financial calendars one day, a private equity fundraise the next, or help a client prepare for an acquisition or listing announcement at short notice.
You need to be passionate about developing and delivering communications that target investors, across all types of channel, not just traditional routes.
But this is a varied role and you will be expected to participate across other corporate clients helping to support wider corporate reputation mandates too. Similarly, we encourage all our employees broaden their horizons by supporting other parts of the business too, whether that be in health, disputes or sport.
