We work with our clients to understand and manage their political, regulatory and policy challenges and opportunities. Our primary geographical focus is the UK, but we have a growing EU practice. We are a young and expanding company, giving you room to shape and grow both the business and your career. We pride ourselves on giving personal and specific advice to clients who come to us for our support on the issues that matter most to them.

About the role

This is a senior role with significant opportunity to help build a fast-growing business and to be a part of that growth. It will suit someone who loves tech policy and the politics behind it, as well as applying their insight to commercial challenges.

You will run your own accounts, working on your own and with colleagues to deliver tailored and high quality advice to clients. There is no line management with this role, and line management is not a material factor for seniority or remuneration at Taso Advisory.

Client management - You will deliver across a number of accounts and will provide clients with both strategic and tactical advice. You will be confident and authoritative and will inspire client trust. You will be responsible for ensuring that your clients’ needs are met.

Tech policy expertise - You will be a subject matter expert in tech policy. You will be able to advise clients and colleagues on the policy and politics behind online safety, competition, data, and more. You will come with a strong background and will be given the space and time to develop your expertise further.

Business development and growth- You will play a key role in identifying new business opportunities. This will include expanding existing accounts, securing new business, and supporting marketing activities to increase the business’s visibility. You will lead and support on pitches and reviews of existing accounts.

About you

  1. You will have experience in an agency or in a tech company. You may also have experience in government, a regulator, Parliament, think tanks or politics.
  2. You will have experience in advising technology companies.
  3. You will have demonstrable experience of delivering impressive outcomes.
  4. You will be comfortable working with ambiguity and be able to filter this to give clients clarity on a given topic.

  6. Most importantly, you will have an entrepreneurial drive to grow the business and to grow with it.
  7. Not essential, but having some EU knowledge will be beneficial.

What we offer

We offer a competitive salary, discretionary bonus and benefits package. All of our team receive a generous annual learning and development budget.
