Digital Account Manager

Cast from Clay is a communications firm that helps public policy experts shape conversations that strengthen democracy.

By connecting experts with broader audiences and so creating a better information environment, we hope to reduce the growing levels of polarisation in Britain and America and reconnect people to the democratic structures that govern their lives.

This involves working with organisations like think tanks, universities, and IGOs/NGOs to create communications strategies, run campaigns, and develop brands and websites.
