Portfolio

Herston Quarter

Queensland Treasury engaged BBS to develop the precinct positioning, brand and narrative for Herston Quarter as part of the international Expression of Interest (EOI) campaign to identify a master developer for the former Royal Children’s Hospital site in Herston, Brisbane.

BBS conceived the Herston Quarter name and supported the project team, finance/commercial and property advisors to take the project to market, ultimately resulting in the appointment of Australian Unity as the winning developer consortium.

The core challenge was to create a campaign which presented the strengths and opportunities of the site to the development community so that an appropriate development partner could be secured with a financial package that met the needs of the Queensland Government.

From the initial Expression of Interest (EOI) phase through Request for Proposal (RFP) to final developer appointment, BBS supported our client to engage productively with site-users, the property and development community and government agencies to establish a positive environment for the redevelopment on a critical piece of public land.

What we did

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”.
