I joined the Grayling family a month ago and, thanks to my colleagues, I have felt at home. Companionship, conciliation, and teamwork are values that define Grayling from day one. Facts which have a positive impact on their customers.
Laura Puigvert, Madrid
I would recommend Grayling to any PR professional who aspires to level up their skills and take advantage of amazing opportunities that come with working for the biggest global brands!

The Brussels Grayling team has one of the best EU public affairs networks – the team dynamism, the drive we all have to deliver for our clients, and the policy issues we are working on, this all makes it a highly interesting working place in which time flies by and where everyone is pushed for continuous personal growth.
Dominik Flikweert, Brussels
I joined Grayling about 3 years ago and when I first came to the China office, there were not many people in the team. So glad I was able to grow with the team, working for different types of clients with others. What I love most about Grayling is the culture- I can always feel welcomed, inspired and encouraged.
Rachel Xin, Shanghai
I decided to apply for work with Grayling primarily because of the potential to grow in communications. By serving international brands and companies, Grayling offers the opportunity to work on attractive projects, frequently unavailable to consultants in smaller agencies.
In my work as a PR person, I like to be faced with communications challenges to reach my target audiences. I am happy to be surrounded by people, working with others, and developing my skills.
Grayling is a well-organized workplace, where every committed employee will be offered a chance to grow.
Jacek Borowiec, Warsaw
Through Grayling, I’ve advanced both professionally and personally. Our global network of clients and colleagues makes everyday a fun, new challenge. Grayling offers a well-rounded experience and a great culture. I love working with our clients and colleagues around the globe!
Trevor Thompson (New York)
If you enjoy working in an international environment and want to orient yourself in a variety of areas, Grayling should definitely be your choice. Strong clients guarantee that you will get to interesting topics and you will be fully informed about daily events in the world.
Michal Huska, Bratislava
The thing I like most about working in the Grayling Brussels office is that we are all driven by an interest in public affairs and wanting to deliver for our clients – but we all come at it in a different way given that there is such a range of backgrounds and culture within the team.
Hannah Thominet, Brussels
As someone relatively new to the PR industry, Grayling has given me the opportunity to work with interesting clients across different industries and markets. The support I've received at Grayling and its offices around the world has helped me build core PR foundations and allowed me to grow professionally and personally.
Han Toh, Singapore
When I joined Grayling as a digital consultant more than 12 years ago, many companies had yet to learn how to use social media channels for their external communications. Grayling in Vienna was one of the first agencies to push a holistic approach and offer 360° communications, allowing me to make the most of my digital expertise. Not only that, but Grayling has offered me nothing but support as I juggle work and family life as a mother of three.
Gilda Polagnoli, Vienna
I joined Grayling as an intern straight out of Uni and have felt at home right from the start. Grayling has provided an environment where I can learn and thrive, both personally and professionally, at a company that supports my growth even outside the workplace – be it an internship at the EU Parliament or studying part-time for my Master’s degree.
Nathalie Monschein, Vienna
I joined Grayling in 2019. After three years of growing up with the company. It gave me the opportunity to witness the organic growth of the business, and I have also achieved a leap both professionally and personally. With this high potential, I cant wait to see what is next in the future.
Davion Zhang, Shanghai
I felt extremely comfortable at Grayling right from the start, which is mainly thanks to the amazing team spirit. Due to the agency's versatility, I have been able to work in a wide variety of fields in a very short time and have really learned a lot since then. I'm very grateful for the many experiences that have helped me grow in every respect.
Stella van den Berg, Frankfurt
I’ve been working at Grayling for 7 years. I know, that’s quite a lot for a PR consultant But I have the chance to be working both for the tech B2B and the consumer department of Grayling France. It means evolving with great clients with several comms issues to solve. However, Grayling’s best assets remain its talents. From France to the UK going through Germany or the US, I’ve worked with many inspiring and great people from our network, and this is what I like the most here!
Manuel Chaplet (Paris)
No two days are the same at Grayling and that’s what I love about the job. The wide range of clients we have provides growth opportunities for those just starting out their careers and others seeking to build and strengthen their PR skills.
Shirley Kettler, Singapore
I joined Grayling a year ago to develop personally and professionally and I felt comfortable from day one. For me, the agency has the right size and internationality to work with large and attractive clients and yet there is a family atmosphere in which you can work flexibly. In addition to the exchange at our two locations in Frankfurt and Munich, I am particularly looking forward to future networking and the exchange of knowledge with international colleagues.
