I am incredibly pleased to announce that I have joined the Public Affairs and Policy Practice at Ellwood Atfield. EA has the largest team in the UK and Europe recruiting public affairs, policy and campaigning professionals for corporates, not for profit, trade associations and consultancies.
By joining EA, I personally now have the opportunity to offer the widest possible range of exciting opportunities to the great Public Affairs practitioners that I have met over the years and continue to meet every day. It allows me to continue to offer the high levels of service that I adhere too and collaborate with colleagues that have a fantastic wealth of knowledge, experience and skills.
Notwithstanding the great reputation that EA enjoys, a huge part of the attraction for joining EA was the team.
Some of my new colleague’s individual achievements include:
- 3 who stood for Parliament & an MP advisor
- 11 languages spoken amongst the team
- 1 FTSE 10 Comms Director
- 1 EU HR Director
- 1 Entrepreneur of the year
- 1 MD PR Agency
- 2 Solicitors
- 80 years’+ experience as PA & Comms practitioners
- 1 PhD in governance of associations
EA is well known for delivering thought-leading reports on the industries it serves and has several of the most well-attended events in Westminster (in the past these have been attended by David Cameron, George Osborne, Nick Clegg, Boris Johnson and many other high profile figures).
Nicola Bates, Director of Public Affairs and Policy at EA said:
“I am so pleased that Joshua has joined Ellwood Atfield. He has the perfect background of a degree in politics, experience in recruiting public affairs professionals and the hunger to strive and deliver the best for clients and candidates. This combination always struck me that Joshua was an EA consultant in waiting and he is already fitting in incredibly well at EA. I look forward to working with him over the years to come.”
Our other practices cover corporate affairs; digital; consumer PR; brand; policy; media relations; financial PR; and internal communications. We also specialise in the appointment of chief executives of trade associations, professional bodies and representative organisations.
