The Whitehouse Consultancy

Interview in PR Careers


I’ve been interviewed in PR Careers, a website for students and graduates looking to get into PR, public affairs or media relations. In my interview I talk about how working in Parliament gave me good grounding for a career in political consultancy, and outline my thoughts on what makes a good PR practitioner. I also give advice on what graduates can to to increase their chances of breaking into the industry.


You can read my interview here, and as with the previous interviews I’ve posted on this site, I’d certainly appreciate any feedback.


Interview in Public Affairs News


I was recently interviewed by Public Affairs News, the main publication for those working in the UK and EU lobbying industry. The feature was part of a series where the director of the Public Relations Consultants’ Association invites a senior communications professional to share their insights into politics and current affairs.


During my interview I argue that the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Opposition will make it extremely difficult for Labour to regain power in 2020; that the Liberal Democrats will continue to struggle for relevance; that the recent UKIP campaign was poorly executed and a wasted opportunity; and that Britain will vote to stay in the European Union in 2017.


You can read the interview here and, as always, I would be grateful for any comments or feedback.


Interview in Public Affairs Networking


I’ve been interviewed by Public Affairs Networking, a website for those who work in public affairs and the policy and communications sector.


You can read my interview in two parts. In the first part I talk about my position as Associate Director of The Whitehouse Consultancy and how my role as a lobbyist helps me deliver a better service as a councillor, and in the second part I give advice to students and recent graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in politics or government relations.
