About the Company

Our client is seeking a skilled and enthusiastic Urban Designer to join their well-established design team, based in London. 

This team will offer a dynamic, helpful and vibrant atmosphere where collaboration amongst colleagues is key to its success. 

The studio offers a fantastic working environment; very socially aware and with a democratic approach to staff and projects. In addition, they offer a comprehensive range of benefits to all employers. You will also benefit from hybrid and flexible working. 

This Architecture office focuses primarily on UK residential, education and commercial development but always maintaining social responsibility around the work they produce. 

About the Role

The role will be required to run small projects, or work within a project team on larger urban design projects of varying complexity. This work will be across all sectors, including residential, mixed-use and urban regeneration projects. The role will be hands on, requiring initiative and strong communication skills that will be invaluable for attending consultation meetings, and liaising with internal and external stakeholders. 

This role is ideal for those candidates who can take ownership and manage the workload of other, more junior members, responsibly.  

The selected applicant will share a passion and enthusiasm to create better places, and will build upon their knowledge of the practice of urban design services, products and outputs. 

You will be responsible for contributing to the design of places, from concept through to planning and beyond. A large part of the daily tasks will revolve around site analysis and the production of high quality planning documents, such as Design and Access Statements, Design Codes and Parameter Plans. 

About You

In order to be successful for this role, the ideal candidate will have: 

  • Ability to prioritise workload and meet deadlines. 
  • Be able to develop and maintain good relationships with clients, consultants and contractors. 
  • Minimum of two year’s UK based post qualification experience working on small to large-scale urban or suburban master planning projects. 
  • Good knowledge of urban design best practice and UK planning policy. 
  • Good design eye and drawing skills. 
  • Coordinate design work as necessary with other consultants. 
  • Ability to communicate ideas both verbally and visually. 
  • Produce presentation material, reports and models. 
  • Excellent presentation and graphics skills, with the ability to create good quality illustrated, print-ready reports related projects. 
  • Knowledge of Revit and Adobe packages. 

You will also be required to: 

  •  Assist with submissions for urban design bids, tenders and competitions. 
  • Attend and contribute to studio meetings and Practice wide meetings. 
  • Keep in touch with allocated studio outside the Place studio and maintain a knowledge of projects and timescales in that studio. 
  • Keep up to date with the work of the practice. 
  • Manage personal CPD. 

 In summary this is a fantastic opportunity for a talented designer who wants to contribute to exceptional Urban Design schemes in a fabulous working environment.
