The role will lead to involvement in a wide range of project types at all stages of the design and implementation process. Opportunities may arise which require involvement in projects with our other teams based in Norfolk and Suffolk. We currently have a diverse range of projects across different sectors, including public realm, recreation, commercial, education, care, strategic and detailed residential schemes (including high density), renewable energy and green infrastructure projects.

- a strong communicator with good interpersonal skills to enable effective working with multidisciplinary external and in-house teams
- good written skills, with experience of preparing technical reports and design statements
- Strong IT skills, with proficiency in AutoCAD, Photoshop, InDesign and SketchUp and graphic skills to enable a high quality of presentation
- experience of the delivery of high quality projects on site

The position is an excellent opening for someone looking to progress their career in landscape architecture, with future opportunities for advancement for the right candidate. The role will lead to involvement in a range of project types at all stages of the planning, design and implementation process. There is also the opportunity to broaden your experience and develop your LVIA, landscape planning and report writing abilities.
We offer the opportunity to join a friendly and committed team of multi-discipline professionals and a supportive working environment. Benefits include a voluntary work place pension, ‘Cyclescheme’, a starting allowance of 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays) payment of professional memberships and a programme of CPD.
