Salary: Excellent remuneration

Job Details

We are looking for an energetic and determined individual to join Turley Engagement - our growing (network) team of communication and consultation professionals.

At Turley we believe in shaping better places - and to create great places you must involve people. Turley Engagement focuses on people, and their influence on the planning and place-making process. We lead on community, political and press engagement to shape attitudes, create support and secure planning permission. We are experts in consultation, campaigning, and creative content and are seeking a likeminded individual.

Based in Manchester or Leeds, you will work alongside co-owners across a range of specialisms in planning, design, heritage, economics and sustainability, and clients delivering strategic property and infrastructure development across the UK.

A ‘digital native’ you will work on our growing social media and online campaigns, and be confident in traditional public relations and community consultation activity. You will support development of strategy, and the delivery of public exhibitions, press management and councillor engagement, to minimise planning risk. The ideal candidate will be educated to degree level; be highly organised and flexible; a skilled face-to-face communicator with excellent writing ability.

We are seeking a Consultant who will bring existing experience in Community Consultation, Marketing, Public Relations or Public Affairs, who wants to make a career in the development sector. If you have a track record of engaging professionally with people on complex and controversial issues or a passion for local politics or property development across the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ we want to hear from you.

Previous consultancy is advantageous; experience in the planning or property sectors is also welcome but not essential. We will consider exceptional recent graduates for an Assistant Consultant position.

We offer an excellent remuneration and flexible benefits package including a travel allowance (at consultant level), non-contributory pension, ownership dividend and performance related bonus.
