Who we are looking for
We want people who have an interest in politics and policymaking. Who love to learn about the political drivers of policymaking. Who are intellectually curious, motivated and believe that good public policy matters. Who will be adept at handling complexity and ambiguity, scan the horizon for risks and opportunities and form coherent and well-argued perspectives quickly.
An opportunity to work with world-class advisers and political experts in a fast-growing firm, alongside a strong professional development program including a personal training budget.
A competitive salary and bonus structure, a robust benefits package and opportunities to work from our offices across the world.
A commitment to work-life balance, with flexible working, 25 days holiday allowance plus public holidays, enhanced parental leave, discretionary winter holiday office closures, and sabbaticals.
We work for companies, investors, government agencies and civil society organisations. Whether we are helping clients predict, adapt to, or shape policy or regulatory change, what defines our work is a strong belief that good public policy matters.
Our statement of basic principles sets out how we approach the work that we do and the way we interact with our clients.
Our commitment to diversity
We are committed to equal opportunities, respect and wellbeing for all staff and applicants for employment. We are committed to building a team that genuinely reflects the diversity of the places we work. We are committed to achieving a culture where there is regard for all and there is no place for discrimination and harassment of any type.
Our aim is for GC to be a company where all our colleagues have the opportunity to grow, develop, succeed and be their authentic selves whatever their sex, race, colour, class, religion, age, national origin, disability status, genetics, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, redundancy, leaves of absence, salary and training.
About Global Counsel
Global Counsel brings together a team with diverse experience across the public and private sectors. Since our establishment in 2010 we have developed a wide range of services and capabilities for corporates and investors.
Global Counsel helps companies and investors across sectors to anticipate the ways in which politics, regulation and public policymaking create both risk and opportunity, and to develop and implement strategies to meet these challenges. We provide them with due diligence support to build compelling, evidence-based campaigns to engage in policy debates.
Our work is supported by high quality analytical content and collateral that is politically and economically informed and which builds quickly into executable strategy.
Our team is led by former public policymakers and political advisors with experience at the highest level of government. We have offices in London, Brussels, Washington DC, Singapore and Doha and are supported by a network of partners in other key markets.
