Jack Smith Director

Following nearly a decade working in roles across comms, stakeholders, and strategy for leaders of the Labour Party and wider the labour movement, Jack joined Headland in 2019. He splits his time over two parts of the Headland offer. Within the public affairs offer, along with heading up Labour Party engagement and counsel, he leads teams focussing on regulatory and reputational issues, for clients in highly scrutinized sectors such as energy, transport, infrastructure and finance. The other half of Jack’s time is spent on Headland’s Strategy & Insight function where he has a particular focus on secondary research as well as narrative development projects. Within the function, Jack works with businesses across a multitude of industries – from food to professional services.
