The LI is seeking a professional development officer and a senior media relations officer

LI currently recruiting for two roles

The Landscape Institute is looking for two motivated individuals for the following positions: 

Professional Development Officer

The Landscape Institute is looking for a talented individual to manage the route to its chartered membership professional exam, known as the Pathway to Chartership (P2C).

Chartered Membership of the Landscape Institute (CMLI) is a globally recognised qualification awarded to those who pass the Landscape Institute’s professional examination.

The successful applicant will need to focus on delivering an exceptional level of service, managing the P2C online learning platform and providing excellent support and advice to its users, in particular licentiate members, their workplace mentors and P2C supervisors.  

The postholder will also need to organise and oversee the chartership exams and a new CMLI annual ceremony. He or he will promote the P2C and help develop new ways of enabling a wider range of candidates to progress towards the exam. We are also interested in developing an alternative route to Chartership for experienced practitioners and the postholder will help develop this route and take candidates through this form of assessment.

This role requires a positive, proactive and organised individual who is motivated by improvement. In return we can offer the successful candidate responsibility, experience, and the ability to make a real positive difference to our processes.
