England, United Kingdom

Our team of environment specialists offers clients expertise in air quality, impact analysis and permitting, environmental health and safety management consulting/due diligence, remediation consulting/engineering and construction/site restoration, specialty and emerging technologies, waste services and water and natural resources.

Job Summary

We are currently seeking a Landscape Architect to join and support the growth of our environment team, based in Basingstoke. 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. 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 Basingstoke 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.

The landscape architecture discipline within our environment business numbers around 35 and contributes to a wider landscape practice of around 100 staff across the UK and Ireland. The Basingstoke office is located in the town centre. Basingstoke is a modern, vibrant town, under an hour’s travel time from coast and capital with great connectivity coupled with superb countryside and the North Wessex Downs AONB on its doorstep. The office supports a range of sectors, such as land use planning, residential and mixed use, urban regeneration, green infrastructure, transportation, energy, flood alleviation, historic landscapes and neighbourhood planning, with major clients including the Homes and Communities Agency, Environment Agency and Highways England. The wider environment and planning team comprises a group of specialists in landscape architecture, EIA, ecology, heritage, planning, water resources and ground engineering. Other key disciplines include project management, cost consultancy and various aspects of engineering.

We have an impressive portfolio of major national and international infrastructure projects. A selection of our current and recent projects includes:

Townscape and visual impact assessments for various major regeneration schemes across the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Landscape and visual impact assessments for major infrastructure schemes, including HS2 Phase 2B and A303 Stonehenge.

Green Infrastructure strategy and landscape masterplan for a new garden suburb at Fareham, Hampshire.

Shepway District Landscape Sensitivity and Capacity Study aimed at guiding growth at a district-wide scale in Kent.

Regeneration plan for the renovation of Crystal Palace Park, London.

Long-term management of habitats at sites across the UK on behalf of the Environment Agency, including the flagship Jubilee River scheme.

Character assessments to support neighbourhood plans across England.

Landscape design and planning for river restoration schemes across north London and Hertfordshire.

Landscape and visual appraisals to support site allocations for new urban extensions in Hampshire, Cambridgeshire and Essex.

Job Responsibilities:

Applicants should be able to demonstrate an appropriate level of technical expertise in order to be able to carry out the following job/project accountabilities:

Clear communication, including the ability to write concise technical reports and to contribute positively to conference calls, meetings and workshops.

Ability to work collaboratively and iteratively within a multi-disciplinary design team.

Assist in the management of projects, including contractual, financial and programme management.

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

Contribute to tenders for 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.

Be aware of and understand the AECOM procedures, their importance and their application to projects.

Minimum Requirements

• CMLI with up to two years post Chartership experience. Candidates within the last quarter of P2C will also be
