Urban Designers / Masterplanners

Planned Resources
Melbourne, Australia

Have a new year’s resolution to 'do something different'?  Try Australia for size…

Melbourne is expected to double in size from 5 million to 11 million over the next 20 years. Consistently ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities, developers are dealing with increasingly sophisticated buyers who are looking for a sense of place and community from their purchase, putting Urban Design of increasing importance in new developments.

Our client is an integrated provider of Urban Design, Planning and Engineering services to the development sector, dealing with clients that range from major ASX listed development corporations through to High value private equity investors on developments that can range from 50-60 lot infill developments to 1000+ lot, multi-staged developments in Melbourne’s designated Growth Areas.

With a strong pipeline of work already in place, our client is keen to secure a number of Urban Designers ranging from Associate Director down to consultant level. Based on the limit supply of available talent in Australia, they are prepared to look overseas and sponsor suitable designers. The successful candidates will work in a collaborative style within the team but take specific project responsibility for project timelines and Quality, Client Management and Design Outcomes for individual projects, with the complexity/size of projects allocated based upon experience.

Candidates should have:

  • Worked within a consulting environment on development-led Urban Design projects
  • Be able to demonstrate good design outcomes in previous projects and articulate how their input helped to guide the client, regulatory authorities, and support consultants to the end result
  • Possess strong communication skills allowing them to converse ideas graphically (ideally both digitally and by hand) and verbally

Our client is offering an attractive remuneration package, circa $70-120K AuD (£40K-70K equivalent) and sponsorship for suitable candidates. Offering a chance to really 'change it up' in 2022 with both your career and lifestyle, this is a great opportunity to explore.
