About the Role
We are expanding and seeking a Landscape Assistant to join our dynamic Landscape Architect team in Wolverhampton to assist with all elements of project design from initial conceptual sketch plans through to the implementation of detailed planting schemes and construction detailing.

You should have a degree in Landscape Architecture (Part III), Landscape Design or equivalent and ideally possess experience working within a landscape architecture team, preferably as part of an architectural practice, doing the design and drawing for both soft and hard landscape projects.

You will need plenty of initiative and excellent communication skills and be able to take instruction. You must also be happy to work as part of a team. Experience of AutoCAD is required and knowledge of CS Artisan or Keyscape, Photoshop or graphics packages would be advantageous. It would also be beneficial if you have experience of producing planting plans, although this is not essential. A driving licence is required.
