Strategic Communications Consultant
Turley is a national planning and development consultancy. We are looking for an energetic and determined individual to join our Strategic Communications team in Northern Ireland to become a part of our expanding service of communications professionals.
At Turley we believe in shaping better places - and to create great places you must involve people. Turley Strategic Communications focuses on 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 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 services to deliver results for high profile projects and clients.
We are seeking an exceptional Consultant to support continuing growth in our Belfast and City of Derry~North West offices. With a minimum of two years’ experience in a public affairs/public relations role you will be confident in traditional public relations and community consultation activity, as well as online and social media campaign management.
Using your knowledge of current and political affairs in Northern Ireland you will support development of project strategy, and the delivery of public exhibitions, press management and councillor engagement in order to minimise planning risk.
Our ideal colleague will be a strategic thinker, educated to degree level; be highly organised and flexible; a skilled face-to-face communicator with excellent writing ability. A passion for the built environment and understanding of the Northern Ireland Planning system and local government is important; and previous consultancy experience with a focus on client management is desirable.
We are seeking a Consultant who will bring existing experience in Public Affairs, Marketing, Public Relations or Community Consultation, and who wants to build a career in the development sector.
If you have a track record of engaging effectively with people to address complex and controversial issues we want to hear from you.
