We have a unique opportunity – we're an award-winning consultancy with a 25-year track record in delivering fantastic solutions for our FTSE 500 clients.

We are looking for a mid to senior level candidate with strong experience in internal communications, with a particular understanding of executive communications.

You will have the opportunity to work in a professional corporate environment with our blue-chip clients, but we also want you to bring your entrepreneurial streak to work – to help grow The Fifth Business and achieve the exponential growth targets we've set ourselves. We've been around the block, and now we're ripe for new philosophies, innovation, lateral thinking and disrupting the status quo.

So if you are agile and adaptive, take this for a challenge – have you ever been in an environment that's well-defined, tried and tested, and entrepreneurial all at once? Welcome to our world!
