The new year has started very positively for the Urban Design sector with opportunities arising across the UK. We are working closely with a national consultancy to assist in the growth of their extremely busy and talented Urban Design team based in Leeds and this provides a great opportunity for talented Urban Designers in West Yorkshire to face a new challenge.

The Urban Designers will be joining established teams across the UK and will be heavily involved in:

  • Monitoring and preparation of conceptual urban design and planning work,
  • Master planning,
  • Design and access statements,
  • Developing strategies for residential and mixed used schemes,
  • Feasibility studies.
     

Additional responsibilities are dependent on your experience but shall include managing projects, liaising and meeting with local authorities and project teams and engaging regularly with clients. Typical clients include developers, land owners and private clients and will provide the Urban Designer with a varied and challenging workload.

The ideal Urban Designer will have demonstrable experience within Urban Design and will be able to show a history of working on residential design. Previous experience within an in-house team or a residential developer will be highly beneficial as your workload will focus on the residential sector and you shall possess the ability to produce excellent hand drawings. Graphic package experience is also of great importance and the packages used by our client are Vectorworks/AutoCAD and Adobe Photoshop/InDesign; however, training can be provided on these if required.

This is a superb opportunity for Urban Designers looking to join a growing multi-disciplinary consultancy with multiple offices across the UK looking to add to their talented teams. An excellent remuneration package is on offer and you will be rewarded for your hard work with career progression. Current opportunities are available at Urban Designer, Senior Urban Designer and Associate Urban Designer levels.
