Join the Network

At FleishmanHillard Fishburn we are reinventing public affairs for the 21st century influence landscape. Our view is clear: effective political influence comes from top-class insight, thoughtful communications strategy, integrated delivery, and creative ideas that will help our clients stand out from the crowd.  We recognise that the days of siloed public affairs are over. Instead, our “communications approach” utilises multichannel influence, including media, social media and digital platforms, alongside traditional engagement methods, for greater influence and impact.

We proudly position ourselves as the “agency for change”; the go to public affairs agency for clients who want to shape decision maker opinions on critical strategic policy issues, whether global, Europe-wide, national or local.

Our award-winning team includes consultants who have worked at the highest levels of government, brilliant campaigners, those with deep sector expertise and (our clients say) some of the best consultants in the business.

We operate a relatively flat team structure, where every member of our team is expected to take leadership opportunities and contribute actively to the development of our offer and service.

As a medium sized Public Affairs team in a large integrated agency, we benefit significantly from our position within one of few truly global network companies. In Brussels and Washington, we are also market leaders in Public Affairs.

Our public affairs clients are declared to the PRCA Public Affairs Register.
