Share position:

Teneo is looking for a talented and driven Associate Consultant (AC) with a passion for business, campaigning, and corporate communications to join our team. Teneo is an integrated communications consultancy, providing all aspects of strategic counsel to business leaders and CEOs.

As CEOs and leadership teams continue to navigate complexity externally and internally, and as the expectations among different interconnected audiences continue to rise, our award-winning campaigning team puts businesses on the front foot, enabling them to speak with clarity and consistency to multiple audiences across the public realm, from consumers and employers to NGOs, political stakeholders and investors.

This role is primarily to support Teneo’s corporate communications and campaigning accounts, joining a thriving team advising high-profile clients on how to create effective narratives, build positive media and stakeholder relationships and tell proactive stories which support a business’s strategic objectives.

We’re interested in meeting candidates with wide-ranging perspectives, and we’re open to hearing from you whether you currently work agency side, or in-house.

As an AC you’ll be the lynchpin for our client account teams – displaying strong project and time management skills, delivering regular insight and analysis, staying ahead of the news agenda, and supporting on clients’ reputational and strategic objectives. ACs manage and coach our Account Executives and work into and learn from our Managing Directors, Directors, Associate Directors, Senior Consultants and Consultants.
