Portfolio

Advanta Seeds/Pacific Seeds

A Queensland-based brand established more than 50 years ago, Pacific Seeds is a leading seed producer supporting farmers across the country. With a focus on research and technological innovation, Pacific Seeds supplies canola, field corn, grain sorghum, grazing oats, summer forage and wheat to Australia’s farming sector.

After several years operating under the Advanta Seeds brand, Pacific Seeds returned to its original name and sought support from BBS to provide proactive internal and external communication, including media relations and brand communication.

In line with the communications strategy, BBS developed content for industry and mainstream media that has placed Pacific Seeds as a major voice of the agriculture industry on a state and national level.

This strong position as an industry leader was further reinforced through the creation of the Pacific Seeds podcast. BBS led the podcast concept development, project management and recording process, including the use of BBS’ in-house media producer to deliver the podcast series – Behind the Seed. The series was identified as not only an opportunity to deliver branded content to existing customers and industry members, but also as a way to humanise complex agricultural practices to an audience entirely outside of the industry.

BBS’ work also extended to company-wide activities during the brand transition and also major corporate milestones including leadership changes and a legal case involving parent company.

Intern at BBS

BBS operates a University Internship Program which offers placements in line with the university semesters, plus holiday period intakes, generally June/July and December/January/ February.

We accommodate trimester students and our program is open to applicants who are pursuing an internship of their own accord outside of the standard university semester calendar.

As a BBS intern you can expect to work alongside experienced professionals on real client projects, an environment which provides an accurate picture of what life as a communications consultant is like. You’ll also have a portfolio of work to take you forward to a future role.

BBS interns are always considered first for our graduate roles and many of our former interns have gone on to senior roles within our firm.

Working in a consultancy is diverse, fast-paced. It’s often said that “you’ll learn more in your first year in consultancy than in your first 3 – 5 years in another role”.
