Westminster Strategy is launching a graduate training programme in partnership with the London School of Economics (LSE).

Westminster Strategy is launching a graduate training programme in

partnership with the London School of Economics (LSE).



WS is the first public affairs agency to run such a scheme in

collaboration with a specific university. Other agencies, including

Fishburn Hedges and AS Biss and Co, run broader graduate traineeships

not linked to any one university.



Westminster Strategy will recruit one LSE graduate or postgraduate

student a year, who will be trained in public affairs and political

media relations for one year, and salaried. After this period, the

trainee may be offered a full time post with WS.



The programme will include stints working in WS’s sister agencies -

European Strategy in Brussels, Stormont Strategy in Belfast and Strategy

in Scotland in Edinburgh.



WS deputy managing director Mike Lee, who is coordinating the programme,

said: ’The LSE’s reputation and the quality of its graduates made it the

perfect partner.’



- WS has resigned the planning brief of its public affairs account with

Safeway. Safeway is in discussion to appoint a new agency to handle

planning.
