Job Summary

We are currently seeking a Landscape Architect to join our team. As a member of one of the UK’s largest and most diverse landscape practices, you will take a lead on a range of types and sizes of projects, including strategic planning, major infrastructure, urban regeneration and environmental enhancement schemes. We will consider applicants with a wide range of experience but a proven track record in landscape planning, including LVIA and TVIA, is preferable.

We are looking for a team player with good technical skills who wishes to be involved in the development of innovative, cost effective and buildable solutions in an environment that is collaborative, stimulating and challenging. The role would suit a self-motivated individual looking to advance their career in a dynamic team. The role is based in Leeds but will support the wider team, principally across the north of England, but also nationally and so some travelling between offices will be expected. AECOM offers a flexible package of benefits and we would be interested to hear from applicants seeking either a part time or full time role.

Nationally our Landscape Architecture team comprises some 102 staff and provides one-stop access to a variety of services.

The team provides services ranging from feasibility studies, detailed design and construction on a wide range of contracts and also supports other AECOM business lines including transport and infrastructure. Our Leeds team is involved in a number of high profile projects with a variety of clients from the private and public sector. Our leading clients include Leicester City Council, Homes and Communities Agency, HS2, the National Trust, the Environment Agency and numerous Local Authorities, as well as leading contractors and developers.

Establish strong working relationships with other members of the landscape team and internal teams across the business.

Contribute to securing and delivering new work.

Produce or oversee the production of drawings and other technical documentation using appropriate software, with the necessary level of detail as required at various stages of development: strategies, conceptual design, detailed design and production information.
