The UK is highly regarded for its humanitarian and development work. DfID recruits the very best humanitarian aid consultants from around the globe and sends them to the far corners of the world on humanitarian relief missions. They then have the difficult tasks of assessing and advising London of the situation on the ground, providing reassurance to host countries, NGOs and the media that help is at hand and persuading officials, politicians and the public in the UK of the need for aid in times of austerity. We are proud to have been selected to provide induction training-in the process of government and parliament in the UK and how to provide advice to ministers and assist them in parliamentary and media handling issues- to these advisers.
