Landscape Architect

Looking for a play specialist to hit the ground running!

Polygon LA has experienced rapid growth since its foundation in 2015, specialising in the design of distinct nature play spaces for day care centres and kindergartens. We have recently moved from the Melbourne CBD to a larger office space in Northcote.

 We are currently looking for a qualified landscape architect with a very specific skillset to join our team on a full-time basis. The successful applicant will have experience in designing play spaces for young children, specifically with nature play and bespoke, sculptural play features. As many of our clients are ongoing there will be a significant level of client management and relationship building, as well as the usual expectation of exceptional attention to detail and the ability to work across multiple projects at once with minimal supervision.

It should be anticipated that this role would have an influence on the future shaping of the organisation.

The role will involve the production of landscape architectural designs and detailing with a particular emphasis on children's playgrounds. The role will liaise directly with clients, contractors and relevant stakeholders and efficiently delegate work with other team members to develop, document and administer projects. The successful candidate will have exceptional communication skills and the ability to work well both with a team and autonomously as we do offer flexible working arrangements.

 KEY RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTIES

Play space design from concept to documentation

Ongoing client management and relationship building

Coordination with construction crews and regulatory authorities

Tender and proposal writing

Research & reporting 

ACADEMIC & TRADE QUALIFICATIONS

 Essential: Tertiary qualification in landscape architecture

 Desirable: Tertiary/diploma qualification in another related field

 WORK EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS

Minimum 4 years work experience as a qualified landscape architect

Must have experience with children's play spaces, preferably with an emphasis on nature play and bespoke, unique play equipment.

Proven experience with ongoing client management and relationship building

Project/contract management experience

Previous staff management experience

Proficiency in the usual software - preferably Rhino / CAD / Adobe suite  


PERSONAL QUALITIES & TRAITS

Most excellent communication skills - written, verbal, visual. Must be able to clearly and concisely communicate complex issues and assign tasks when required.

Open minded - confidence to voice an opinion in a constructive environment

Attention to detail - work consciously to ensure accuracy with an honest degree of self-assessment

Team work - ability to work with others in a constructive and productive way

Multi-Tasking - ability to juggle multiple projects to the detriment of none.


Applicants should be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident


Applicants should send a cover letter, copy of their CV and examples of work to:

 Monique Brock

General Manager

monique@polygonla.com.au

 

Salary will be commensurate with experience.
