Why FleishmanHillard?

We have been named PRWeek's Global Agency of the Year and Best Places to Work; a "Standout Agency" on Advertising Age's A-List; NAFE's "Top 50 Companies for Executive Women" for six years running; and among our firm's award-winning work we've taken home 5 Lions in the past two years at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity.

We are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable working environment for everyone. As the only PR Agency awarded EY's National Equality Standard (twice!), all applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or age. Do let us know if you need any adjustments made during the interview process.

The team

Our team is obsessed with exploring and articulating the ways in which technology is changing every aspect of the world we live in. Our clients span both business and consumer audiences, but we know that ultimately all people make better decisions when they understand what's involved, who they're buying from and what's at stake - so that's what we help our clients articulate about their business, their brand and their products.

Our client portfolio varies from some of the world's largest technology brands to up and coming industry challengers. Whether it's exploring the role of artificial intelligence in modelling the future of healthcare or working with an Oscar-winning cinematographer to raise awareness of the part data storage plays in creating art, our days are always different, and rarely ever dull.

With technology rapidly becoming an inextricable part of every industry, our work spans multiple sectors, from healthcare, financial services, automotive, marketing, entertainment and even law. This variety, along with our belief that the best communications programmes are integrated, mean our team members have the chance to contribute to, and learn from, a whole host of people and practices.
