Westminster Forum Projects

Since lockdown, we have been organising our full programme of conferences online. We will continue online until further notice, to ensure we play our part in helping our employees and delegates to remain safe during this time. We are pleased that so many key stakeholders, policymakers and other interested parties - both old friends and new delegates - are taking up the opportunity to discuss public policy issues and network at our impartial seminars. New events are coming on to our conference programme all the time. So there are plenty of opportunities for you to join us if you haven’t already, from wherever you are. For booking-related queries, or information on speaking, please email us at info@forumsupport.co.uk or contact us using one of the following numbers: +44 (0)7951044809 / +44 (0)7503591880 / +44 (0)7538736244.
For delegates already booked on, we will send you the online joining instructions (including links, event numbers and passwords) five working days before your conference. If you cannot find these in your inbox please email delegate.relations@forumsupport.co.uk

Working at WFP

The company

  • Market leader in organising impartial, senior-level conferences on public policy in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - and now in the Republic of Ireland
  • Our origins are in the Westminster Parliament and our connections with governments and legislators get stronger all the time - check out our Parliamentary Patrons
  • Highly respected by the businesses, legal and financial experts, third-sector and other stakeholders who take part
  • A secure place to work - consistent growth since we were founded in the 1990s

Where we are

  • A minute from the mainline train station in beautiful Bracknell
  • Easy quick commute from London - going opposite to most rush hour travellers
  • Close to more affordable Reading, and in the middle of lovely countryside

The culture

  • Ethical - we treat the important issues discussed in our conferences, our customers and each other impartially, fairly and consistently
  • Professional - we are only as good as our latest seminar
  • Mutually supportive - there are no passengers, all of us here depend on each other
  • Responsible - what we do is genuinely important. Lawmakers and those affected by their decisions rely on us to do our very best
  • Stimulating - we are all always thinking and developing the company and ourselves
  • Supportive - be organised, responsible, and try to learn, and we'll always stick by you

Sounds serious doesn't it?

  • Day to day life here is friendly, chatty, gossipy, relaxed but alert - especially at the weekly meetings where we review all our live events
  • Exceptional social life
  • Rapid promotion from within is the norm
  • Pay rises and opportunities for moving up every six months

After WFP

  • There isn't an 'after' yet for the overwhelming majority of the 100 people here - they are bright, on good pay, stimulated, taking responsibility, and making careers here
  • Those that do move on go to businesses, PR and consultancies, Parliamentary or government work, third sector or academia

What about the negative experiences?

  • A very few, vocal, people find the pace and responsibility difficult to cope with - especially when they are newer to the world of work or come to us from a duller organisation
  • When they leave they tend to discover that we are like most other employers: trying our best to make a success of things and keep everyone in work, making mistakes from time to time and trying to learn from them - and not so bad after all

Is it for you? Are you:

  • Bright (we see potential in people whatever their educational background)
  • Ambitious
  • Idealistic - want to get ahead and help society at the same time
  • Willing to take responsibility, and take it seriously
  • Full of ideas
  • Eager to learn
  • Able to be organised
  • A team player
  • Customer-focused (colleagues are customers too)
  • Persistent and resourceful

If the answers to the above are yes, this could be the place for you. Why not get in touch and check us out in person.
