AECOM is currently seeking a Principal Landscape Architect to join and support the growth of our Environment team, based in London. 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 UK based landscape design and implementation and landscape planning, including LVIA and TVIA, is preferable. This is an opportunity to join a team which is growing and with strong links across many disciplines. 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 our London Aldgate office but will support the wider team, principally across the south-east 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.
