Now hiring: Design Advisors

We are currently growing our team of Design Advisors based in Central London. This is a key role within Design South East, on the front-line of our advice and facilitation services.

We are building a network of support for local authorities, developers and designers across London and the South East of England. Unprecedented housing growth is creating new issues for our cities, towns and villages; densification of traditional centres, urban extensions into the greenbelt, new garden villages. That is where DSE comes in. We provide cost-effective, accessible expertise to bring practical solutions to design challenges. As more and more hard-pressed local authorities get to know how our help can transform the way they deal with design in the planning system, we need to grow our team.

Your workload will be varied. No two days will be the same and you will engage with some of the most exciting, intriguing and challenging projects in the country. You will be working at the interface between public and private sectors and helping us improve the quality of the built environment through the practical application of evidence, knowledge and best practice. Sometimes you will be working with other staff team members, sometimes with expert panel members, sometimes on your own.

You will be a built environment professional, working in the public or private sector in planning, architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, engineering, but with a desire to see the bigger picture and have a real impact on the future of the places where we live and work. Maybe you want to take a break from you core profession, widen your range of experience and build your knowledge and networks.

You can join our design advisor team at various stages in your career and salaries range from £28,000 – £45,000 depending on experience.
