Hawker Britton is opening an office in Canberra.

The incoming Director is Simon Banks.

Simon is one of the most highly respected government relations, campaigning and strategic communications professionals of his generation.

He has served as Chief of Staff or Deputy Chief of Staff to three Federal Labor Leaders, including Kevin Rudd, and has been Federal Labor’s Director of Policy and a senior policy and media advisor to a number of Labor’s frontbench, both in government and opposition.

The contact details for the Hawker Britton Canberra office are:

Suite 2
16 Bougainville St
Manuka ACT 2603
Tel: +61 2 6295 8300
Fax: +61 2 6295 8400
Email: [email protected]

Telstra, no doubt, will be overjoyed to see Banks back in the heart of power.

Meanwhile, Crikey understands that newly unemployed former ministerial staffers are not advised to send resumes to Crosby Textor.
