JOBS: Senior Opportunities – National and International

Opportunities for Landscape Architects in London, Manchester and Copenhagen.

As the scale and geography of our projects grows, so in turn do the opportunities to grow our team. Once again we are looking to make a number of key appointments across our two studios, as well as a foundation appointment within our soon-to-be-opened Danish office.

Planit IE is a creative studio of Landscape Architects and Urban Designers based in Clerkenwell, London and Altrincham, Manchester.

We are seeking talented Landscape Architects with creative flare who share our design ethos and are committed to delivering design excellence to our growing list of clients on our internationally recognised projects. We require four Landscape Architects, two based in our London studio, one based in Manchester and one in Copenhagen, Denmark.

POSITION 1: Chartered Landscape Architect (CMLI+2); Permanent; London

Working across our studios but primarily based in London, our ideal candidate must have excellent illustrative skills, the ambition to lead, and the desire to assist in the development and continued growth of our London studio. We are seeking a Landscape Architect that is as confident and skilled in the creative process and as they are pitching for and presenting work to new and existing clients.

This is a key appointment for us, and we are looking for a very specific blend of skills and experience.

Essential:

  • Post-graduate degree in Landscape Architecture, 2 years plus post-chartership of proven experience in developing landscape designs in conjunction with complex architecture and masterplanning projects, across all scales;
  • Excellent communication and coordination skills, especially the ability to draw!;
  • Experience of being a valuable collaborator within large multi-disciplinary teams;
  • Advanced CAD (2D and 3D) and Adobe Creative Suite skills,
  • Fluency in English – both written and spoken.

Beneficial:

  • Experience of working in a European Landscape Architecture office with project experience on mainland Europe as well as in the UK;
  • Knowledge of project management and site supervision of public realm projects within the City of London and surrounding Boroughs;

POSITION 2: Chartered Landscape Architect [CMLI+2] LVIA specialist; Maternity cover; Manchester

Our Masterplanning and Urban Design team has experienced unprecedented growth over the last six months and we require a Chartered Landscape Architect to work with them during the early stages of our large-scale projects. This is not a job for the non-designer – the successful candidate must see the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment process as integral to the design process. Whilst this is initially a six-month contract, it is highly likely that the right candidate will be offered a permanent post at the end of this period.

Essential:

  • Min 2 years post-CMLI;
  • Experience of large-scale, residential & sports-led masterplanning, with associated LVIA and photomontage skills;
  • Advanced CAD (2D and 3D) and Adobe Creative Suite skills,
  • Exemplary writing skills – you must appreciate and be driven by the craft of the English language.

POSITION 3: Graduate Landscape Architect, London

Resourceful and driven individuals to support our Project Landscape Architects and Studio Leaders. Willing to pitch in at all stages of our projects, must have excellent graphic skills and be used to working under pressure and to challenging deadlines.

POSITION 4: Chartered Landscape Architect; Permanent; Copenhagen

Following our appointment to deliver the public realm associated with Denmark's National Arena, we have a number of new project opportunities that require us to have a permanent presence in Copenhagen. This is a major strategic decision for Planit and so this appointment is a pivotal one for us. Whilst we are looking for a Chartered Landscape Architect, this is as much about the right person for the job as it is the qualifications. We are seeking an exemplary Landscape Architect who is as resourceful and skilled in all stages of the creative process, in particular when working as part of large multi-disciplinary teams.

Essential:

  • Post-graduate degree in Landscape Architecture, 2 years plus of proven experience in developing landscape designs in conjunction with complex architecture and masterplanning projects, across all scales;
  • Excellent communication and coordination skills, especially the ability to graphically present proposals at both the concept and detailed stages;
  • Experience of being a valuable collaborator within large multi-disciplinary teams;
  • Advanced CAD (2D and 3D) and Adobe Creative Suite skills;
  • Fluency in English and Danish.

Beneficial:

  • Experience of working in a European Landscape Architecture office with project experience on mainland Europe;
  • Knowledge of project management and site supervision.

Please provide a compelling cover letter, CV and illustrative examples of your work (max 8 A3 sheets), in a single PDF to Matthew Warner, Practice Manager – mw@planit-ie.com.

Planit Intelligent Environments is an Equal Opportunities Employer.

Closing Date: Friday 31 October 2013.
