BDP’s Landscape Architect profession is continuing to grow due to securing a number of exciting and challenging projects. As a core discipline of BDP, the landscape profession is able to drive positive urban change through our integrated approach to design; creating places for people to experience and enjoy.

The role

In the North of England our landscape team have recently been appointed by the National Trust to develop concept proposals for Phase 2 of the Castlefield Viaduct project in Manchester, and the Castle Gateway Masterplan in York, and continue to work on a wide variety of landscape-led projects across the UK and internationally. We are therefore seeking a Graduate Landscape Architect to join our team, working out of the Sheffield studio.

Candidates will need to have a flair for design and an ability to visualise design ideas in a creative and compelling way. As a major international interdisciplinary practice of architects, designers, engineers and urbanists, BDP offers a unique opportunity to work on a range of high-profile projects within multi-disciplinary project teams.

Teamwork is at the core of our approach, and you will have the opportunity to collaborate and support other members of our landscape team in the design and delivery of a broad range of projects.

About you

You will have excellent design skills coupled with good relevant experience that demonstrates solid CAD and IT proficiency. Passionate about Landscape Architecture, you will be keen to develop your personal and professional skills in a supportive environment.

You will demonstrate a collaborative team-working style and enjoy working to tight deadlines. You will be able to work effectively with people at all levels and from all backgrounds and have excellent communication skills, both verbally and in writing.

About us

BDP is a continuous collective of architects, engineers, designers and urbanists. We design at every scale from city masterplans, neighbourhoods, parks, streets and buildings to specialist, bespoke light and acoustic installations.

We are placemakers who work at every stage of the design process from visioning to briefing to design, delivery and operation. We respond to the demands of our dynamic and ever-changing planet with cross-discipline design thinking that spans all of life’s activities, protects the environment and enhances social value.

Harnessing our collective ethos, the spirit of BDP is about making places for people. Our structure and governance as a global network of federated city studios creates design hubs that are connected to the cities, regions and communities they serve.

As part of the Nippon Koei Group, we fuse our passion for architecture and engineering with user-centred design and large-scale infrastructure projects to deliver world-class solutions for better, more prosperous places.
