Consultant Landscape Architect, Bristol
About the role:
We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic landscape architect with suitable professional experience to expand our award winning team of landscape architects based in our Bristol office.
Our diverse team has a friendly and informal working atmosphere, but we are passionate about the quality of our work, providing the best solutions for our clients and the environment, and making excellent ‘people places’.
We have an expanding portfolio of challenging and high profile projects including university campuses, public realm, parks, access and heritage work. Recent projects include:
– New Campus for University of Northampton (ongoing)
– Campus designs for University of Sussex (ongoing)
– Pinewood Studios expansion
– New Recital Hall – Wells Cathedral School
– Variety of heritage projects for the National Trust
You will therefore have the opportunity to engage with a wide range of projects working alongside senior staff with strong reputations in the industry.
Our design projects are primarily UK-focussed. LUC respects the need of staff to balance their home and working lives. We are therefore happy to discuss flexible working arrangements for this role, including part time working (minimum 30 hours per week), core hours, and a degree of location flexibility.
Salary range: £20k – £28k FTE dependent on experience and grade.
You will hold a degree and / or a post-graduate qualification in a relevant discipline.
The position requires a combination of design flair and technical competence. You should have good all round skills in: design from concept to detail, graphic presentation, and verbal and written communication. Proficiency in both hard and soft landscape design will be beneficial. It is important that you have the ability to work collaboratively, articulate ideas and communicate effectively within an internal team structure as well as with external parties.
You will be comfortable and competent dealing with clients and have the confidence and experience to manage projects independently, but know when to seek support if this is necessary.
Proficient use of AutoCAD and Adobe software is a minimum requirement, ideally supplemented by the ability to communicate with hand drawings and sketches. Proficient use of 3D software packages would be beneficial.
In this role you will be expected to develop your career through actively contributing to LUC’s award-winning portfolio with diverse and challenging projects, as well as contribute to business development and marketing initiatives.
