Opportunity in our Edinburgh Studio

Landscape Planner / Architect

The Paul Hogarth Company make a difference by designing spaces and places with people and the environment at their heart. As a studio of landscape architects, urban designers and landscape planners, we work on a broad, varied and exciting range of projects in sensitive urban and rural contexts that demand high quality design.

To support the growth and expanding workload of our Landscape planning team, and to help further shape the direction and opportunities of this area of practice within the company, we are seeking an experienced Landscape Planner / Architect.

The landscape planning team enjoy a breadth and diversity of work and specialise in applying LVIA thinking and processes early in projects rather than retrospectively. We work closely with a wide range of developers and have provided robust advice and assessment work in relation to new distillery developments, tall buildings, mixed use developments, tourism and leisure projects and mineral sites.

Our work has taken us to many spectacular parts of the UK and Ireland, and we have been involved in ambitious projects within highly sensitive landscape / townscape contexts including designated urban and rural World Heritage Sites, National Parks and National Scenic Areas.

Landscape planning work and advice extends to other projects within the company, and outside of project commitments you will have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of exciting public realm, masterplanning, historic landscape and visitor experience projects.

We are looking for a team player with creative flair, versatility, and a genuine passion for making a difference. Whilst we will consider applicants with a wide range of experience, a keen interest in landscape planning work, sound technical knowledge and a proven track record in assessment/appraisal work including the production of landscape/townscape and visual impact assessments, is required.

The role will be based out of our South Queensferry, Edinburgh studio, but you will also work closely with the wider team that are spread across studios in Belfast and Dublin.
