Who we are
What We Do

PLACE Design + Planning, which amalgamated with Bell Fischer Landscape Architects in November 2016, is an award-winning landscape and urban design practice based in southwest London. As an employee owned trust, PLACE encourages the involvement of all staff in the success of the company and provides an ethos of excellence. We have a broad range of projects in a variety of sectors, from residential to education, and public realm to commercial, in both the UK and mainland Europe.

We are currently looking to fill two posts:

Associate Landscape Architect with a minimum of five to eight years’ post CMLI experience, to assist the Directors in the management of projects in the studio and further grow the practice/project portfolio in the future.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate strong leadership and design skills with an ability to illustrate their work with flair and creativity. You will be able to demonstrate extensive experience in hard and soft landscape design, with a sound knowledge of technical detailing.  You should be a good communicator with both clients and design teams, plus have proven experience of the ability to win new work and lead projects of various scales and complexities; bringing to the role plenty of enthusiasm, you will also have the desire to contribute positively to the management of our committed and enthusiastic team. A full driving license is desirable.

This is a great long-term opportunity to play a pivotal role in the growth and development of PLACE.

Graduate Landscape Architect with a minimum of one or two years’ studio experience, who combines a strong, demonstrable ability in landscape design with real passion and the desire to become a fully qualified landscape architect. We will provide guidance and P2C mentoring for the successful applicant.

Successful applicants will be involved in all stages of projects, from concept to detail, construction and contract administration. With good written and verbal communication skills they will need to be proficient in AutoCAD, Keyscape, SketchUp and Adobe Creative Suite, as well as having the ability to produce good hand-drawn graphic presentations. Experience in Revit and BIM would be an advantage. An organised and efficient approach to completing work on time and to budget is essential.

PLACE is an Employee Owned Trust which means the staff have a say in how the practice is run. We offer competitive salaries, 25 days annual leave, a personal training allowance and time off to assist with completing CPD, social events and the potential for an income tax free bonus of £3600.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK with a current visa. Please send a covering letter, including details of your notice period/ availability to work and current salary, your CV, and samples of work (maximum 10 pages and 10Mb) via post or email to:
