With a specialism for the public sector, Charlotte’s advisory clients include both large unitary authorities and district councils across the UK.

Charlotte manages a range of accounts and oversaw the running the London Borough of Hounslow’s National Campaign and Summit for an Aviation Communities Fund. Charlotte assisted in the placing of comment pieces in the National Media, secured cross party representation at the Summit and ran a social media campaign.

Charlotte’s advisory clients include both large unitary authorities and district councils across the UK. Sensitively reviewing and assisting to implement changes in governance, process and culture of these organisations this is something that she finds very rewarding. Working with Cratus’ associates she is able to advise on political management, the running of committees and team structures.

Charlotte was nominated by her colleagues for the PRCA Rising Star award and won in July 2020. Prior to her time at Cratus Charlotte worked at Fortnum and Mason and studied at Newcastle University.
