About us

Sefiani Communications Group comprises two multi-award winning sister agencies – Sefiani and Kite. Sefiani specialises in corporate PR, government relations and issues management, while Kite specialises in consumer PR and integrated creative communications campaigns for consumer brands.

 

At Sefiani and Kite we launch, enhance and protect brands and reputations. Our clients are global and Australian organisations who are market leaders, and those who aspire to be so, in both established and disruptor businesses. We also place a strong emphasis on not-for-profit work; recent examples include supporting Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation as they secured a $20 million commitment from Bill Shorten into important ongoing research into pancreatic cancer, and working with Special Olympics Australia on the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi.

 

What does this mean for you? It means you’ll have access to a wide range of talented communicators and specialists – across both corporate and consumer PR – for learning and career development opportunities.
