Do you want to transform the world?

The Landscape Institute (LI) represents a membership of over 5,000 landscape architects, landscape and parks managers, urban designers and more, who through their everyday work create and improve the places where we live, work, and relax.

From pocket parks to national parks, green streets to green cities, our members connect people, place and nature on every level, at every scale. Supporting them in this crucial work is our talented and dedicated staff team.

We need people who share our values around people, place and planet, and our commitment to supporting our members as we seek to address the global challenges we’re facing.

We’re a small but growing team with big ambitions and tremendous enthusiasm for nature-led placemaking. Do you want to be part of our exciting mission? Join the LI staff team today, and help us inspire great places!

The Landscape Institute values and celebrates diversity and inclusion in all its forms. We can only change the world for the better if we reflect, represent and inspire the communities we serve.

We support applications from all suitably qualified people regardless of sex, sexuality, race, ethnicity, belief or disability. We particularly encourage applications from candidates from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, who are currently underrepresented in the landscape sector.
