“The role of digital media has already had a large impact and will only continue to do so. It’s exciting to see how agencies and companies adapt and how it will end up shaping the industry.”
I worked on the biggest takeover of a UK company to date. I had just started at Finsbury so when the deal came in it gave me an exciting crash course in PR.
After graduating university, I came across Finsbury through my research of the communications industry. It was clear from those in the industry I spoke to that Finsbury was among the best. I was also aware of the firm’s impressive client list and wanted to experience working with some of the top companies in the UK and globally.
I’m currently an Executive on the Financial Services team. I mostly deal with clients from my sector including FTSE100 banks, leading private equity firms and established fintech players. Beyond my work in financial services, I’ve also done work for pharmaceutical and mining companies, which represents the flexibility here in letting you pursue interests outside your dedicated field.
Finsbury makes a real effort throughout the year to make sure people from different teams and levels get to know each other. This includes events like the away day or a team night to welcome a new joiner. I think this helps dynamics in the office and is another way to learn about the interesting projects happening outside your team.
Finsbury was my introduction to the industry so it has been an invaluable experience in building my knowledge of PR and communications from the ground up.
Since I joined right out of university, my professional development has probably surprised me the most. Although intimidating at times, I now appreciate being forced to learn quickly.
I wasn’t sure what to expect apart from hearing it was a top agency. My first impression was the support and welcoming attitude from everyone which has continued throughout my time here. The work is at times challenging but there is always a network of support to help you progress.
The people. Finsbury attracts people from a range of career paths which creates an atmosphere where people feel comfortable sharing ideas and bringing new perspectives. Beyond that I’ve shared some great memories and lots of laughs in the office.
Hard-working, strong sense of teamwork and never boring!
