Our Mission

At Politis, our mission is to offer academic rigour and operational experience to local government.

About us

“This City is what it is because our citizens are what they are”, Plato, Greek philosopher

the flame first lit here in Athens never died, President Obama on the Greek origins of Democracy, 2017

These ideas are the basis of our philosophy.

With Ancient Greece being the birthplace of democracy, we have taken this melting pot of ideology as our inspiration.

Our name, Politis, comes from the Ancient Greek word “πολῑ́της”, or in Modern Greek “πολίτης”, which translates to “citizen”.

In Ancient Greek, the word “πολῑ́της” originates from “πόλις”, meaning “city” and the masculine adjectival suffix “-της”.

At Politis, as our name also suggests, we put the citizen at the centre of all we do. 

Some of our recent work includes:

Locum Chief Executive Officer services to Thorpe St Andrew Town Council.

We provided a range of services from strategic oversight to project management. We also provided specialised support for lease negotiations and defending legal challenges.
