One of Australia’s largest architectural practices, Buchan has engaged BBS for more than a decade to manage its media relations program across Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific, with a view to positioning the firm and its designers as market leaders.

BBS’ approach took Buchan’s exposure beyond architecture and design media and into the mainstream where the message of excellence, innovation and buildability could directly reach potential clients and decision-makers.

With a calendar of proactive media releases, journalist engagement and thought leadership commentary, BBS was able to build media networks for Buchan which consistently delivered more than $1 million worth of coverage per annum.

The close working relationship allowed BBS to coach and support the Buchan team through media interviews and also to support their clients with messaging and media handling as we profiled key projects, individuals and design initiatives.

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. 

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”.
