Each day, more than 2,000 of the smartest, most supportive and collaborative people in the world come to work at Hill+Knowlton Strategies
Our wildly diverse network of talent works closely together to drive proven results for some of the best-known brands on the planet.
A truly global family, we live and work in more than 80 offices around the world, so we understand the unique markets in which our clients operate. This lets us bring best practices to them, and one another, day in and day out.
We believe that every corporation, every brand, every client has a public and today’s public is more powerful than ever before. They have the power to topple CEOs, reshape corporate and brand strategy, kill products and create unicorns.
Today’s public demands truth, transparency and the highest behavioral standards. Powered by our people, we combine passion and creativity with deep industry knowledge to help our clients engage their publics effectively. We anticipate needs and inspire those around us, each and every day.
From startups to storied brands, agriculture to aerospace, finance to pharma, and everything in between, our clients operate in every public, private and non-profit sector imaginable–and so do our people. Our campaigns influence decision-makers, shape reputations, manage risk, engage stakeholders and impact bottom lines.
At H+K, you can write your own story.
Diversity + Inclusion
H+K is built on a bedrock of inclusion. To us, ethics and integrity are everything.
Just as it’s our responsibility to provide our clients with our personal wisdom, creativity and guidance, it’s also our responsibility to listen to one another, learn and collaborate.
We embrace our diversity because we know it makes us stronger, nimble to risk and responsive to opportunity. To that end, we actively seek out people who will inspire creative and curious conversations. Together we grow, share our experiences, and continue to excel within an open and collaborative agency culture.
At H+K, you belong.
YouBelong, H+K’s global diversity initiative, aims for every single employee to feel like they belong and to inspire them to reach their full potential. Representing a cross section of employees across the globe, YouBelong’s focus is organized around three pillars:
1. attracting + retaining the best diverse talent;
2. helping our clients more effectively engage with diverse groups; and
3. diversity-focused professional development.
YouBelong complements the activities of our local diversity programs such as Distinction (U.S.), EquAll (UK) and Inclusion+ (Canada), ensuring we’re all learning from one another, sharing best practices, and working toward a common goal: attracting and retaining the most diverse, talented and creative staff imaginable.

Juan Ernesto Parra Collantes de Terán
CEO ANDEAN REGION - Colombia, Peru & Ecuador
Over 17 years in counseling and working with PR and communications strategies for FMCG's, unions, associations, government and multinational organizations, with high skills in systemic analysis, critical and lateral thinking and digital transformation for business and economic development.
Mr. Parra is an Industrial Engineering and Systems and Computing Engineering at the University of Los Andes (Colombia), and expert in Organizational Critical and Systemic Thinking.
My day-to-day at H+K is spent ensuring our projects are on time and on budget, but most importantly, I contribute to some of the most high-profile public policy issues in Canada. We ensure the public has a voice in the decisions that will affect them; this meaningful engagement keeps me energized. Of course, this type of work can be challenging at times, but team collaboration is deeply ingrained into our culture. What better way to spend your day than with a great team and a job you love!
Senior Account Executive
Prepping for a day at H+K, I often look forward to solving the next big challenge and making a positive impact. Working in an environment that encourages growth has allowed me to showcase my full potential. The global network is also inspiring, connecting everyone—even on a personal level. So be it a fun atmosphere with smart colleagues, a mentor helping me push the boundaries, a diverse team, or accolades for client work, I love being part of H+K.
Regional Director, Financial and Professional Services, Middle East
When I joined H+K, I expected just a new logo on the wall. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Every day, I look forward to spending time with my diverse colleagues, working closely with teams in the UK, the U.S., South Africa and of course the Middle East. We’re united by our passion for the job, our relentless work to make H+K even better, and our obsession with creativity. What’s more, I’m at the forefront of seismic changes in the sector and regional capital markets, enjoying every minute.
Starting my career at H+K has been the best decision I could have made. Since I joined I’ve participated in numerous trainings, earned my master’s degree, worked with diverse clients and made lifelong friends. H+K employs some of the most talented people in the business and I’ve immensely sharpened my skills working with them. And H+K has the benefits and power of a global agency with the community, culture and nimbleness of a boutique firm. That alone keeps me and most of my colleagues here.
