We need to be at the top table with our clients, understand their business and personal agendas, and build strong, lasting relationships with key influencers and leaders of the future.

Within Market Development, our Strategic Relationship Programmes support this vision with market-facing programmes that invest in building long-term authentic relationships with key client individuals, including current and future decision makers.

This role sits within the Strategic Relationships team, as part of Market Development.

There are around 15 people within Strategic Relationships, across the four programmes.

Working alongside the Vice Chairs, the Board Relationship Programme (BRP) aims to drive transformational change in how we build long term
client relationships. We are currently looking for an assistant to support the programme on a permanent or secondment basis. This role
