The guest on this episode is Anna Koj, Managing Director for Mavence in Brussels. Mavence is an international recruitment firm at the crossroads of Public Affairs and people management.
In this episode we get the headhunters perspective on the state of Public Affairs and how 1) the demand for PA pros is increasing and many are currently being approached, especially from consultancies, 2) due to COVID-19 some PA pros in Brussels have moved back to their home countries and now want to stay there, 3) COVID-19 has changed some of the skills in demand - maybe for the better, with a bit more openness to diversity.
Finally, we also talk about one of our favorite topics: how PA pros are working closer to the C-suite and what this requires from the modern PA pro.
The host of the Persuaders podcast is Anders Kopp Jensen, founder and CEO of Ulobby.
