A mini film ‘Crestival’ in aid of Rape Crisis

Shocked by the revelations of sexual violence from people in the public eye in recent weeks, we are doing our bit to help support brave victims who come forwards. Between now and the end of the year Team Crest are hoping to raise funds for Rape Crisis by watching as many feminist films with strong female roles and messages as possible. For each film we watch, each person will donate a minimum of £5 to Rape Crisis.

You are welcome to join in our mini-Crestival challenge. For ideas see our justgiving page:

Sarah - Our new Head of Strategy and Insight

Never let it be said the Crest induction isn’t dynamic. Sarah joined us just over a month ago and in a whirlwind of a first few weeks has already clocked up over 2,000 miles, absorbing some of the finer parts of the UK criminal justice system. From Devon and Cornwall to Bristol and Edinburgh, Sarah has been working with Crest clients for research projects into community justice and has even found time to host roundtable discussions here at Tavistock Street. Welcome Sarah – you’re already a great asset to Team Crest!

Women at Crest

The women of Crest took time out of busy schedules, in search of public affairs enlightenment (and a croissant) at a Women in Public Affairs breakfast discussion. From hearing about the ups and downs of running two of the most politically divisive and significant campaigns in recent history to advice about the most effective tools for successful campaigning (Facebook ads are right up there in case you were wondering), the debate asked, what was it like to be in the thick of the Remain and Brexit camps? What did each side learn about head and heart campaigning? And when did they think the crucial point in the campaign came? It was an insightful event led by women who held leading backroom roles in both campaigns. We all came away buzzing with thoughts and ideas.

We’re always on the lookout for great talent. Send us your CV and we will contact you when we have a position available.
