POLITICAL communications: conference research and development

Holyrood Communications Ltd, Scotland’s foremost political communications company, has an exciting opportunity in its conference development team for a bright, well connected and self-motivated individual who is passionate about politics, political communication and current affairs and can translate that enthusiasm into successful events.

As a conference developer with Holyrood magazine’s conference arm, you will probably have at least two or three years experience working in a policy or political environment; in public affairs, the media or perhaps in a public relations consultancy or similar type of organisation. You will have a sound command of all research and monitoring techniques, a working knowledge of UK politics, the Scottish Government’s legislative programme and a varied skill set that allows you to understand the broad range of disciplines required to do the job well from speaking with government ministers to administrative work. Excellent communications skills are essential for both internal and external relations.
