Position description

At Brunswick, we help the world’s providers of energy, resources and infrastructure communicate what they do, why that matters, and how they can transform to meet the needs of society. These businesses must demonstrate the value they create, manage critical issues and respond to extraordinary events – including systemic risks to their business.

We create expertly defined public affairs and communications strategies that get to the heart of specific opportunities and challenges faced by corporates around the world.

Brunswick advises traditional upstream and midstream operators, and energy services groups, throughout the value chain. We are at home with segment specialists and complex integrated providers.

Our clients also reflect the energy revolution. We work with management teams accelerating the energy transition: cleantech disruptors, utilities and developers involved in low carbon solutions, smart grids, renewable deployment, storage, EVs and green finance providers. We help them win share-of-voice, raise capital, gain greater cut-through, ensure their social license to operate and navigate regulatory regimes.

The Opportunity

As an Executive, you will deliver timely news updates and analysis, political and broader stakeholder mapping – and in doing so you will develop a strong understanding of clients’ businesses. Brunswick Executives are the eyes and ears of their teams; they prepare key client documents, in particular biographies, stakeholder lists and policy analysis, and often lead on research.
