Interesting and varied work which will drive your career development, including being given responsibility and accountability. Part of that development will also include cross-sector working which is something our clients value you most.
Here’s what some client’s had to say:
“Powerscourt provides us with advice and perspective that we don’t get elsewhere. Their clear-thinking, creativity and connectivity have been absolutely invaluable to us over the years, and they never fail to rise to the challenge.”
– TIDJANE THIAM, INTERNATIONAL FINANCIER
“The Powerscourt team has provided trusted and valued advice to Unite over a number of years. What sets them apart from other firms is their ability to look beyond our financial communications needs and tell the Unite story through a variety of other channels to support our brand and wider profile. Powerscourt’s approach is also much more personal; they take a genuine interest in understanding our business purpose and supported us through the challenges brought by Covid-19. I would happily recommend them.”
– RICHARD SMITH, CEO, UNITE STUDENTS
“Powerscourt has worked with us for over a year advising on a multitude of complex reputational risks and issues. Bringing invaluable crisis comms expertise to the table – from core strategic advice to tactical media handling – Powerscourt has played a leading role working side-by-side with our corporate affairs team in protecting and enhancing our reputation across a range of key stakeholders.”
– BEV ROWNEY, HEAD OF CORPORATE AFFAIRS, PENNON GROUP PLC
For the Community – Our Corporate Social Responsibility
Powerscourt is proud to give back to the community by offering our specialist skills pro-bono to good causes; supporting charities chosen by our employees; and sharing our time and expertise to help the PR & communications industry to become more diverse.
Our Pro-Bono Work
Our recent pro-bono work covers a range of topics and sectors, and includes:
Championing the Global Media Campaign project to end FGM.
Supporting Azeem Rafiq’s fight against racism in cricket.
Working with Charlotte Caldwell, the mother of Billy Caldwell, the epileptic boy whose case was instrumental in the legalisation of medical cannabis in 2018. Charlotte has been working to gain commitments from medical cannabis manufacturers to gift medical cannabis to refractory epilepsy patients whilst they await NHS funding.
In the past, we have also provided ad hoc pro bono support to the Galapagos Conservation Trust, which aims to protect the vulnerable ecosystems found on Galapagos, and Little Village, a movement of parents committed to alleviating child poverty.
In 2021-22, our pro-bono work equated to well over £100,000 of PR & Communications advice, and we continue to look for new opportunities to use our expertise to support good causes.
Our Support for Charities
Our Culture, Philanthropy & Sustainability Committee chooses a charity annually for our employees to support. All employees can take 1 day per year to get involved in supporting our chosen charity.
Championing Diversity in PR & Communications
We work with two organisations to promote diversity in the PR & Communications industry:
THE TAYLOR BENNETT FOUNDATION is a charity created to encourage black, Asian and minority ethnic graduates to pursue a career in communications. In May 2022 we hosted a half-day workshop for 8 BAME graduates on the Taylor Bennett Foundation Summer Programme- participants took part in interactive presentations on various aspects of PR & Comms from our senior employees, and then met our Graduate Trainees to find out more about our graduate programme.
We look forward to hosting another workshop in 2023, and in the meantime we have advertised our graduate vacancies through the Foundation.
THE 1-HOUR PROJECT is a voluntary organisation which matches professionals with university students from less advantaged socio-economic backgrounds, typically the first generation in their family to attend university. The project aims to bridge the gap between these students and those from more advantaged backgrounds, who have access to professional networks, contacts who can help them find roles, and professional coaching to prepare them for graduate recruitment processes. Without these advantages, many graduates with potential get left behind. Professionals volunteer one hour of their time to advise a student on how to get started in their chosen industry, and how to succeed.
Many of our employees, including our Senior Management Team, are involved with the Project, helping students gain confidence, insight and industry knowledge at the start of their careers.
