JOB OPPORTUNITY - GARDEN DESIGNER AND PROJECT BUILD SUPERVISOR
We have an exciting and rewarding opportunity for an enthusiastic and hands on garden designer looking for a fresh challenge.
As a bespoke design and build practice, we specialise in the creation of high-end gardens and landscapes to discerning clients with a particular focus on outstanding soft landscaping schemes. We are therefore looking for the right person to join our small enthusiastic team in this new and varied role.
The ideal applicant will be creative, passionate about garden design, self-motivated and willing to rise to the challenges of both design based and practical work. This position would ideally suit a recently qualified designer or pre-registered member of the SGD, with the desire to learn new techniques and get a real feel for hands on garden design and build.
Responsibilities will include the development and realisation of planting plans and construction drawings, supported by the practice owner David Loy MSGD.
The role will be split between design and build, and as part of a small team you would have the opportunity to ‘hands on’ experience of a wide range of build techniques, horticultural skills and design styles and expected to learn on the job. As part of the role, we would look to support the candidate through the journey to registration as a full member of the Society of Garden Designers, with the opportunity to manage projects from design to completion to a standard and format suitable for adjudication.
