Copper Consultancy, one the UK’s leading specialist communications agencies, has expanded its UK reach by opening a new office in Cardiff.

 

The Cardiff office builds on over 18 years of Copper Consultancy supporting large-scale complex infrastructure projects in Wales.  

 

Based in the Creative Quarter in the heart of the city centre, the opening is a signal of intent for the agency, following a senior level hire in the latter half of 2023. 

 

Copper is a full-service communications consultancy with over 100 people UK-wide, specialising in combining insight, expertise and creative communications for clients across the energy and infrastructure sectors.

 

In Wales, Copper has supported clients such as National Grid, RWE, Wind2, Hanson, ABP, Bute Energy, Green GEN Cymru, Western Link, HyNet, Uniper, Renewable Connections, Western Gateway, and Cardiff Parkway.

 

The opening of the new Welsh base, along with its new relationship with RSK Group, will provide a strong foundation to further deliver its award-winning work for current clients as well as expanding into new sectors. 

 

Copper has a growing team across the length and breadth of Wales, beyond the capital, and is steadfast in its commitment to bilingualism with a growing team of Welsh speakers at a senior level. 
 

The consultancy is actively recruiting in Wales and will offer communications professionals a rewarding and exciting career opportunity. 

 

The office will be led by Lisa Childs, who is a stakeholder and strategic communications specialist with experience both in leading high-profile campaigns for nationally significant infrastructure projects, and in leading Welsh campaigning organisations.  

 

Managing Partner, Martin McCrink, said: 

 

“Our new Cardiff base will provide a great platform to deliver for clients, existing and new; building on over 18 years of delivery in Wales.  

 

“As we grow, we are keen to attract the best talent across Wales to our business. Our talented team takes on some of the most important challenges for our clients and were keen for more communications professionals to join us on our journey. 

 

Wales Lead Lisa Childs, said:
 

“Wales is on the cusp of a green energy revolution, and we are seeing a confident Welsh Government drive forward an ambitious programme for change.

 

“There are challenges, but I’m motivated to help our clients navigate them. Copper Cymru can be the one-stop shop for strategic communications, stakeholder engagement, public affairs, creative and design, crisis communications, as well as building on our strong track record in supporting projects achieve consent.

 

“I’m looking forward to expanding on Copper’s record of delivery in Wales, and excited by the opportunities that hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, and offshore wind offer us in Wales.
