I’m in Consulting with EY 2 years now (People Advisory Services specifically). My real interest is in communications - strategic corporate and political comms. Anyone have any experience of moving into this field from Big 4 consulting? I’m in Ireland so US context likely to be different, but still would love to hear people’s views.

I’m out of California but work with colleagues in Boston who do the same kind of work In Europe I know from my friend who transferred there that our London office does some comms work across Europe. She has done work for UK, German and Swiss companies for instance.

In US PAS practice. You can definitely specialize in corporate comms regardless of geography, but political comms may not be A Thing in the PAS service offerings (but idk how things work on the other side of the pond?). I do know of someone in US PAS who recently left for a corporate comms position in house, so that's definitely a route.

I thought Pas did Communications consulting

We do, but it’s only part of the work. Current projects I’ve been on have more of a focus on change management, org design. I have got some good experience in comms but wondering if I could specialise
