We’re the political monitoring company where clever people meet clever technology.

And we have over two decades of experience in delivering expert insights, information and alerts.

To us, political monitoring is a specialist service, not an agency afterthought.

Our team is made up of trained subject specialists, who understand your policy area and know what’s significant to you and what’s not.

Newsdirect is very proud to be a living wage employer. We never offer unpaid or expenses-only internships so you can be sure that your monitoring, from urgent alerts to in-depth committee summaries, is delivered by specialists.
