Our difference

Want to join one of Scotland’s most respected corporate communications consultancies, working with some of the world’s best known brands?

More importantly, do you want to work as part of a team that truly cares about each other, our clients, and the impact we’re making together in Scotland, the UK and around the world?

If so, Charlotte Street Partners is the place for you.

We are a young, forward-thinking strategic communications consultancy that trades on our intelligence and ability to give great advice.

We really don’t like the “dog eat dog” reputation that communications consultancies have. Instead, we’d much rather have each other’s backs. We know that it’s our people that make Charlotte Street Partners and are proud of every single member of our team and the difference they make every day.

We are committed to creating a friendly, open, and empowering place to work. We want people to be themselves because we believe when they do, they’re at their best.

In support of wellbeing for everyone at Charlotte Street Partners, we offer an enhanced benefits package, including;

  • flexible and hybrid working
  • enhanced pension
  • extensive private health insurance
  • expert mental wellbeing support from external, qualified practitioners
  • life insurance
  • a generous performance-related bonus scheme
  • membership to professional bodies
  • an individual training budget for every employee
  • dedicated mentor
  • duvet days
  • …and much more!

We’re relaxed, but professional; fun but serious when our work requires it.

We believe in structure, but not hierarchy.

Our company culture revolves around four values:

DIFFERENCE

We value difference and respect it in people, backgrounds, perspectives, experiences and points of view.

CANDOUR

We tell people what we think, choosing to give the advice people need to hear and not what they may want to hear. Our advice is anchored in truth, experience and perspective, always.

POSITIVITY

Our positivity, enthusiasm and energy are at the heart of our character as individuals and a team. We look for the best in people and situations, seeking opportunity, often in the least obvious places.

TOGETHERNESS

We are at our best when we work together, supporting and challenging our clients and colleagues to always be better tomorrow than they were today. Together, we make the difference.

If these values resonate with you, we want to hear from you.

Internships

Applications for our 2023 internship programme will open in Spring. Please keep an eye on this page for full details of what the internship entails, what we’re looking for from candidates and how to apply. Our internship programme is usually reserved for third and fourth year university students, but all applications will be considered on merit. 

The programme is extremely competitive, and as such applicants will be asked to submit their CV and a written essay in support of their application. 

 

What to expect

Our interns have the opportunity to work across a range of clients, projects and services. No day is the same but typical responsibilities include research, drafting briefings and analysis notes and supporting client teams.

Charlotte Street Partners pays all of its interns the Scottish Minimum Wage. Each successful candidate will be offered a 6-8 week placement, to take place in Summer 2023. 

We are headquartered in Edinburgh, although we offer both hybrid and flexible working to all employees. You can find full details of our commitment to being a caring and responsible employer here.

I have learned so much from the wide range of experts here and it has been wonderful to see their friendly faces (on Zoom) every day. The creative license and the level of responsibility you are given from day one is rare for an entry-level position, as is the daily contact with senior and founding partners. If you enjoy writing, researching, planning, and thinking big, I can’t recommend it enough.
