Furthermore, a competitive benefits package, a strong culture of learning and development and great range of different projects.

You will preferably hold a Degree and Diploma or equivalent in Landscape Architecture or other relevant subject and ideally be a Chartered Member of the Landscape Institute (CMLI). You will share our desire to work with clients and stakeholders to create exceptional places which provide multiple benefits to people, communities, and the environment.

You will have a demonstrable experience of preparing LVIAs and appraisals for UK planning applications with strong report writing skills. You will have strong knowledge of environmental planning issues, current UK planning, legislation, and environmental impact assessment regulations. In addition, you will understand the issues and needs of a range of technical disciplines in relation to the planning and design of sustainable places and projects.

You will have proven ability to understand client needs, think creatively and provide pragmatic advice to meet client needs for sustainable solutions, within time and cost constraints. You will also have the necessary skills and experience to liaise with a broad range of stakeholders and will use your organisational skills to manage tasks effectively.

As a proactive and engaged team-player, you’ll enjoy actively supporting and facilitating the development of team colleagues, as well as working collaboratively with other teams within the wider business.

It is advantageous, though not essential, for candidates to have experience in undertaking townscape assessments, preparing landscape designs to clear planning conditions, creating green infrastructure designs or strategies, and knowledge of landscape maintenance and management prescriptions.
