Alex Challoner’s agency will look to deliver national public affairs support aimed at building the organisation’s profile with any potential new Government in 2019 “regardless of political persuasion”.

The trade body for the recruitment sector previously used Political Intelligence led by MD Nicholas Lansman.

The account will be headed up by Tory-supporting Challoner, with help from consultant Sabrina Huck who is
“a leading Labour activist on the Corbyn left of the party”.

Commenting on the win, Challoner said: “2019 is going to be an exciting year for public affairs as well as
for Cavendish. This recent account win is a taste of things to come in uncertain political times as clients
seek out stronger cross-party political clout from their agencies”.
