Prior to joining Newgate in November 2016, Charlie Withey interned with a prominent PR firm in London working across a range of clients in the energy, travel and telecommunications sector.
He supported the team in both a public affairs and public relations capacity, building on past intern experience with several other communications agencies. He has also worked as a policy researcher on an election for a Greater London Authority candidate.
Whilst at Newgate, Charlie has helped to launch an industry trade body which promotes the benefits of unconventional energy sources in the transport and infrastructure sector. He has secured meetings with key stakeholders such as MPs and policy makers on behalf of the body.
My greatest achievement was completing my Master’s dissertation which involved analysing thousands of pieces of media to determine the discourse and result of the EU referendum. Although all my findings turned out to be wrong, I was still proud of the mark I managed to achieve!
