Position description

Leidar is an international advocacy and communication consultancy headquartered in Geneva, with offices in London, Brussels, Dubai and Oslo. Our culturally diverse team has a breadth of international experience that gives Leidar a uniquely global mind-set.

Our deep experience brings with it the expertise, knowledge and judgement we have gained by working as part of, and alongside, some of the world’s leading blue-chip multinationals and trade associations, UN organisations and foundations - on some of the most high-profile and challenging topics, which includes a strong focus on sustainability and the SDGs.

Delivering across the entire spectrum of communications disciplines enables us to successfully design, plan, implement and manage robust strategic advocacy programmes - helping to meet our clients’ objectives and beyond.

We are looking for a highly-qualified motivated self-starter, who is keen to join a growing and dynamic business. Due to recent new business wins, we are looking to recruit an advocacy and communications consultant to join our award-winning Brussels team.
