A passion for business and an entrepreneurial spirit
Strong communication, interpersonal and team working skills
Experience of delivering client programmes in the health sector
Organisation, efficiency and attention to detail
Ability to analyse, summarise and communicate about complex policy and healthcare issues for different audiences
In return we offer:
Competitive salary above industry average and involvement in the company’s incentive and reward bonus scheme.
A tailored training package that will help you develop specialist skills in consulting and communications, in your first year and beyond.
A lively, open and collaborative working culture, in which everyone is valued, listened to, and encouraged to generate ideas and opportunities.

We are WA
We look for people who share our intellectual curiosity and love to work on interesting, knotty challenges. We are consistently driven by a desire to deliver outstanding results for our clients and attract people who truly care about providing an excellent standard of work.
Our diverse, high quality client base will allow you to get your teeth into exciting and important policy and business issues. What you do will have true, real world impact. There is enormous job satisfaction to be gained from that.
We think the best client service is one tailored carefully to the client’s individual needs. A service that can draw on the skills and expertise of specialist consultants in public affairs, corporate communications and investor services. We actively encourage teamwork across our practices and place real value on collaboration to deliver on our clients’ communication objectives.
We are committed to professional development at all levels and want everyone to feel their career is consistently moving forward. This is underpinned by a culture of honest, constructive feedback and investment in coaching and training.
