We are Newsdirect, an independently-owned political intelligence company providing daily monitoring of political news and parliamentary proceedings. We specialise in reporting proceedings of the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly, but staff also monitor Westminster, the European institutions and the broader political arena. We work from offices on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and in Cardiff Bay, close to the devolved assemblies that we report on.
Our service is all about the intelligent scanning of the day’s news and political output. Though we’d love to spend the time analysing and pondering the nuances of a particular speech or policy announcement, that’s not our core service.
Our clients include large public agencies, influential trade bodies, well-known companies and campaigning
charities. Our reputation is built on the talent and dedication of our research and reporting teams who
work closely together to provide a seamless service. Staff training is of the utmost importance to us, with everyone participating in a structured development programme – from intern to senior account manager – with regular support sessions and weekly team meetings.
