Great South West Public Affairs tender


The Great South West is seeking a public affairs agency to elevate the visibility, influence and leadership which we believe the region can play across the UK economy.

The Great South West is dedicated to driving investment and spotlighting the region’s world-class industries, businesses, and workforce. With an economy worth £64.4 billion and rich in diverse sectors such as marine industries, photonics, and agritech, the region is pivotal to the UK’s economic security and growth.

The agency should drive engagement with government ministers, shadow front bench members, senior executives, and trade and industry leaders to advocate for GSW’s role in the UK economy.

Deliverables include:

  • Comprehensive stakeholder mapping in Westminster.
  • Organising high-profile Westminster events.
