Job Details

With the company slogan “Best in Class, Best fun to work with”, The Terrapin Group is a major player amongst the UK’s public affairs companies working in regeneration and the property sector. Our clients include some of the largest developers in the UK on projects predominantly in London and the South East. We are looking for an ambitious and dynamic Account Advisor to join our growing team, working alongside some of the most senior and highly respected practitioners in the industry. The successful applicant is likely to be a recent graduate or have gained equivalent skills in the workplace.

The Account Advisor will undertake daily monitoring of parliament, local government and the media, writing briefing documents for clients interested in the UK property market and for colleagues. They will write company profiles and do research work for team reports. They will be part of client teams helping with public consultation exhibitions for planning applications, including finding relevant local politicians, stakeholders, writing newsletters and designing websites. The Account Advisor will be based at our central London office, although they will be expected to do site visits and attend meetings at clients' offices when required.

The successful candidate will be fascinated by politics at a national and local level. They will have practical knowledge of the public affairs/political/media arena and have an understanding of the workings of Parliament and local government. They will be interested in property development and regeneration. The ability to write well (for reports, newsletters and press releases), perform under pressure and work on multiple projects at the same time are all essential qualities to succeed in the job. Good organisational skills and an eye for detail are also important. The role requires networking with clients and politicians from all political parties. A sense of humour is essential!
