Current vacancies:
Urban Design Summer School: Assisting PLACE Staff with the planning, promotion and delivery of our 5-day Urban Design Summer School. (Applicants should be available for the dates of the Summer School, 6th-10th August.)

Research: Helping prepare background research for various PLACE documents, articles and projects.

Marketing and Communications: You will work with PLACE Staff on all aspects of marketing and communications, including public relations, press releases and the use of online social media and digital media to promote PLACE and facilitate discussion with the general public.

PLACE Internships are voluntary, for a minimum 2 month period between mid-June and September 2012 and can be full or part time (suggested 3 days per week). Out-of-pocket expenses (for spending like public transport, car parking and lunch) will be covered.

Closing date for applications: No later than 5pm on Friday 8th June 2012.

Interns will be based at PLACE in Belfast City Centre, and there may be occasional travel to other parts of Northern Ireland. Interns will be supported by PLACE Staff. There may be some elements of training provided but we welcome applicants with the knowledge and initiative to work on their own.
