The available position is for an experienced landscape architect or landscape designer to work within Jared Lockhart Design. The role would suit someone with 5-10 years work experience and who is comfortable running projects and being involved in every aspect of the design process, from the initial client meetings through to managing the build onsite.
A practical knowledge of landscaping and construction is essential. A thorough understanding and fluency of Autocad, SketchUp, Photoshop and Indesign are a must.
Specifically, the role includes a mix of onsite and office-based work. The focus of the onsite work is managing and liaising with contractors and overseeing projects in construction. Within the office the work involves everything required to move the project through from the initial design, into detailed design (Resource Consent and Building Consent submissions & construction drawings), and finally into construction on site. This includes the production of CAD drawings, schedules, presentations and the general day to day running of jobs including client and contractor liaison.
This is a full-time position with a potential immediate start.

About Jared Lockhart Design:
Jared Lockhart Design creates landscapes and gardens. Each design is unique but shares a similar approach. The work is often collaborative and always the result of an explorative research and development phase, which involves model making and in depth analysis of the natural and cultural history of the site. Our home is Auckland but the work is throughout New Zealand over a wide range of natural and built landscapes. The work is primarily residential but often expands to include selective commercial work. The studio is run solely by Jared and was created in January 2015 after he returned to Auckland from London where he worked for 8 years for the highly respected and successful landscape designer Jinny Blom.
