Are you an enthusiastic and determined individual with a passion for communication, politics and public engagement? Are you looking to apply your enthusiasm for the built environment, property development or planning in a leading national consultancy?

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 political, community and press engagement to shape attitudes, create support and secure planning permission.

If you are a motivated  individual with a desire to gain critical experience in the development sector, or the communications industry, have a strong interest in political and business news and in the local development sector, this opportunity could be for you.
