Public Affairs Profiles
To help you get the low-down on working in this sector, a number of people have provided their own take on the public affairs industry by writing a PubAffairs Profile. With a broad range of experiences both in the UK and EU public affairs, these include questions about how each got into the industry, day-to-day roles, the characteristics and skills needed, together with advice on how to go about looking for jobs, networking, making contacts and other useful info.
The Profiles have been written at different times and are individually date stamped. People may have moved on from their jobs at the time of writing or they may have even updated their Profile. PubAffairs welcomes contributions from any industry practitioners who would like to complete their own Profile please contact us.
The Profiles are all available as downloads. If you require a PDF viewer (AcrobatR Reader) to view the information then click on the icon below to download the software.
