Job Title: Consultant, Strategic Communications
Working For: Turley
Length of Contract: Permanent
At Turley we believe in shaping better places - and to create great places you must include people. Turley Strategic Communications focuses on engaging people, and their influence on the design, planning and place-making process.
We are seeking a Consultant who wants to gain experience in public affairs, marketing, public relations and community engagement, 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.
We lead on community, political and press engagement to shape attitudes, generate development support and secure planning permission. We work alongside private and public sector clients delivering strategic property and infrastructure projects 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 services to deliver success for high profile projects and clients.
With the aspiration of a career in communications and public relations your role will be to assist the senior team in researching and developing project strategy, delivering multi-channel engagement and events, producing engaging and interactive content for traditional and social media, and to engage directly 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 and Midlands political experience is desirable.
We offer great career opportunities and professional development. Turley is an employee-owned business and is one of the largest planning and development consultancies in the UK. We offer an excellent remuneration and flexible benefits package including medical insurance, pension, ownership dividend and performance-related bonus.
We operate a blended flexible working model, allowing co-owners choice, freedom, and flexibility as to where, when and how they work, balancing personal, team and client requirements.
