Meeting Place is an integrated communications agency that specialises in the built environment. We deliver planning communications and public relations campaigns to create positive change from new developments.

Meeting Place exists to ensure the built environment is used as a catalyst for positive change.

Everything we do is underpinned with a commitment to three core values:

  • Insight – We add value with our insights, they’re born from our expertise and empathy.
  • Inclusivity – We go out of our way to ensure everyone’s voice is heard.
  • Courage – We’re brave enough to move forward using both our head and our heart.

The role:

Meeting Place has an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to make a difference. There’s consensus that our country needs more homes, new space for businesses and better infrastructure. We’re looking for someone to join us and be part of the solution.

You will help to create communications and engagement strategies for our clients, undertake community and political background research, develop engaging print and digital content, take part in community and stakeholder engagement events, and provide insightful reporting.

  • Enthusiasm and adaptability – you enjoy taking on new challenges and getting to grips with new projects and can adapt to changing client needs and project priorities.

You should have some knowledge of or an interest in politics, the built environment, and/or the community and social impact issues that interact with the planning process.
