Public First is expanding

We are pleased to welcome Aria Babu, Ilinca Bogaciov, Natascha Engel and Ruth Newton to Public First. Natascha, a former Labour MP and Deputy Speaker, joins us full-time, leading our growing number of infrastructure projects, while Ilinca and Aria will be working on a mix of campaign and policy projects. Ruth joins us a specialist in our quantitative research team, working on economic modelling and polling.

We are also looking to hire five staff members: two education policy specialists; a communications analyst; a general policy analyst; and an office manager. We will shortly be looking to hire an additional four staff members: two campaign consultants with experience in grassroots and digital campaigns, another policy analyst with quantitative skills, and a health policy specialist. Details to follow shortly on these.

We are very different from most agencies in the public affairs / communications space. Culturally, we’re like a campaigning think tank. We suit people who are interested in changing public policy and, because we seek project work, people who are very proactive and results driven.
