Wanted: New Associates in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland

The Consultation Institute is expecting a higher level of activity in these countries over the next 2 years and wishes to supplement its base of over 30 existing Institute Associates, most of whom are based in England. 

Most of our Associates are highly experienced public engagement professionals possessing particular market segment knowledge or particular methodological or thematic  expertise. On occasions, they develop and deliver training, but more frequently provide best practice Advice & Guidance to public bodies or anyone seriously needing to consult key stakeholders or the general public. The Institute has well-proven, world-class methodologies for Quality Assurance, Risk Assessment, Stakeholder management and a host of other tasks for which our clients need help.

If you feel you might be interested, and can work on a freelance basis, but within the Institute’s Associate framework, please complete the form below.
