Working at SEC Newgate

What makes us different?
At SEC Newgate we offer a career path, not just a job. We have some impressive tenure here and the success stories speak for themselves. We embrace entrepreneurial spirit and provide opportunities to build a successful career. 
 

As a strategic communications and advocacy group with global reach and local expertise, you have the opportunity to work across the full communications spectrum. You will be working with a range of high-profile clients, operating at the heart of business, politics, communities, markets and media. 

You will curate a diverse portfolio of client accounts and projects, contributing to those that benefit most from your knowledge and experience. In this way, you will develop your expertise and expand your repertoire, taking your career to the next level.

As well as industry-leading holiday entitlement and a day off for your birthday, we offer a comprehensive private medical insurance plan and benefits scheme, as well as hybrid and flexible working. 

Our mentorship and learning and development programmes allow you to develop your skill set. Learn from the best with our calendar of in-house courses: from lunch and learns, where colleagues share best practice, to sessions with external facilitators, and inspirational talks from impressive individuals.

You can part in our cycle to work scheme, join our book club, or our LGBTQ+, ethics, or social committee or our mixed football team – or do it all! If you have your own ideas, then we want to hear them too and if you prefer a more relaxed approach to the extra curriculum activities then that’s fine too. Should you wish to live and work elsewhere in the UK, we have offices across the country and can facilitate a transfer. You could also take advantage of our remote working policy and work up to a month (each year) in a country of your choice.
