Groundwork Landscape Architects
Groundwork’s Landscape Practice is unique. We specialise in community engagement and a truly collaborative design process. We know that this co-creation approach results in open spaces that are wholly embraced by the community. The sustainable design and management of open spaces is central to our ethos and design practice. We know that multi-functional open spaces can significantly reduce the harmful effects of the changing climate on communities and on the environment.

About the role
We are looking for an enthusiastic Landscape Architect to work within a collaborative team on an exciting range of projects throughout the north east of England. This position provides an excellent opportunity to gain experience in the development of projects from conception, through to design and contract management.

You will be confident, driven individual who wishes to design and deliver a wide range of schemes including major housing estate regeneration, public realm, community parks, habitat creation, river restoration, sustainable drainage and flood risk management.

This opportunity is for individuals interested in gaining further experience of all design stages – feasibility studies, visualisations, construction detailing, project planning and contract management.  A high proportion of our projects proceed from feasibility through to construction as our wide range of clients value the innovative design approach that we bring to all of our projects.

About you
We are keen to hear from confident, creative individuals with strong communication skills and proven competency in CAD and Adobe Creative Suite. You will have studied an accredited UK course in Landscape Architecture or Urban Design. Experience in 3D modelling, such as SketchUp, would also be an advantage.

Closing Date: Midnight on Thursday 7th July 2022
