Do you understand local government? Are you a political activist with good Labour party connections? Do you hold, or have you held, elected office, perhaps as a councillor? Is politics in your DNA?
Thorncliffe is a very successful established agency, with 18 years of results and experience in the local government and property sector. Our team works across a number of high-profile clients and sometimes controversial projects to deliver community and political strategies to achieve results. We’re looking for someone with drive, determination and expertise.

In this role you will progress your consultancy skills; taking responsibility for the day to day management of client accounts and maintaining positive client relationships, identifying issues which might impact on client activity and actively developing new business ideas and initiatives alongside the senior management team. You will upwards manage senior colleagues to ensure Thorncliffe meets and beats client expectations at every level.
You will have excellent written and verbal communication/presentation skills, be well organised, highly motivated and able to work under your own initiative. You will be a team player with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to motivate other colleagues. You will have a proven ability to deliver on commitments, plan workloads, identify issues and find solutions. You will have your own networks within mainstream party political circles which you will maintain and expand. You will be educated to a degree level, and have good PC skills and a driving licence.
The role is in our London (Vauxhall) office. Thorncliffe is accredited with Investors in People and has an extensive in-house training programme, designed to ensure you succeed in your role.
