    Assistant Landscape Architect/Landscape Architect

    If you believe that the combination of the word landscape with architect is rich with connotation; and you are someone for whom the term “genius loci” has meaning; and if you believe in the transformative power of design: then you have the sensibility we are looking for.

    We seek a designer. It is important that you can demonstrate a wide variety of skills and a strong private practice background as a successful part of a team. An exceptional design ability and familiarity with the usual IT packages is essential, but some personal attributes are also fundamental:

    • an ability to enjoy working closely with colleagues;

    • the capacity to handle and develop relationships with clients;

    • self motivation and dedication to the highest standards;

    • the mind to multi task;

    • the ability to write and speak on technical issues.

    Our current portfolio includes a range of unusual design projects: a major Paragraph 55 garden and parkland in Yorkshire with one of the UK’s premier architects; a series of crematoria and memorial gardens throughout the kingdom; urban beaches and pop up parks in the north east; several riverine country parks incorporating the latest synthesis of SUDs and biodiversity design; as well as a solid core of housing, university and business/office park design. We also have a strong presence in the preparation of landscape planning support from site inception, through LVIA and EIA, to expert witness. At RLD, we are generalists and not tied to one category of work.

    Our office is a studio in Northumberland’s countryside and we operate a flexible working system that embraces home working for at least one day a week. Our remuneration package is excellent and includes a pension and car. We drink Java and like contemporary music.

    If this sounds like you, then write with examples of your work, to Sam Nattress: by post – Robinson Landscape Design Ltd, The Studio, Hedgeley, North Bank, Haydon Bridge, Hexham, Northumberland, NE47 6LY; or by email –
