Job Details

Turley is a national planning and development consultancy. We are looking for an energetic and eager Assistant Consultant or Consultant to join our Strategic Communications team in Manchester.

At Turley we believe in shaping better places - and to create great places you must involve people. Turley Strategic Communications focuses on engagement with people, and their influence on the planning and place-making process.

We lead on community, political and press engagement to shape attitudes, generate support and secure planning permission. We work alongside private and public sector clients delivering strategic property and infrastructure development across the UK and Ireland.

We are experts in campaigning, consultation, and creative solutions. As a professional service in an employee owned company we work with co-owners across our planning, design, heritage, economics and sustainability to deliver results for high profile projects and clients.

We are looking for an Assistant Consultant or Consultant to join our busy Manchester team. With the aspiration of a career in communications/public relations your role will be to assist the senior team to research and develop project strategy, deliver public exhibitions and events, produce engaging content for press and social media and be willing to engage with a wide audience of political and community stakeholders.

Our ideal colleague will be educated to degree level; be highly organised and flexible; an exceptional face-to-face communicator with excellent writing ability. A passion for the built environment and knowledge of the Planning system and local government is important but not essential; and any previous consultancy experience is desirable.

We are seeking an Assistant Consultant/Consultant who wants to gain experience in Public Affairs, Marketing, Public Relations or Community Consultation, and has an interest in the development sector. If you relish the opportunity to engage with people to address complex and controversial issues in the built environment we want to hear from you.
