Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a Senior or Principal Landscape Manager who can lead and deliver complex landscape management projects. The successful candidate will be a Chartered Landscape Manager (CMLI) or someone close to sitting the Pathway to Chartership exam, and will join TEP’s Land Management team based in our Market Harborough office.

The role is suitable for office or ‘hybrid working’ with time spent working from home in addition to attending the office. The successful candidate will also be required to attend site as part of this role.

Role and Requirements

We are looking for a candidate with a strong background in landscape management who proactively helps clients to deliver their projects, providing consistent professional advice, with a proven ability to deliver. You will have experience in coordinating complex projects and be able to demonstrate a working knowledge of legislation in respect of landscape management. You will also have a good working knowledge of health and safety legislation, experience in liaising with contractors and signing off contractor RAMS.

Our Land Management Team lead on delivery of the Homes England Estates Management Services Framework (EMSF). The successful candidate will have a portfolio of sites owned by Homes England working with clients to ensure successful delivery of a range of estate management services. Homes England is responsible for an extensive and diverse portfolio of land across England. Sites include greenfield land, woodlands, brownfield land and vacant building complexes such as former hospitals. The estate currently comprises over 6000ha of land allocated for development and TEP delivers several services, including landscape management, arboriculture, ecology, health and safety, land audit, and engineering.

You will work with a team of highly skilled consultants to inspect, record, procure and manage works to completion in order to mitigate risks across the land. The portfolio is continually changing with new land assets being acquired that require prompt assessment and subsequent derisking.

The role will involve a range of tasks, from the management of complex and high value landscape maintenance contracts to ad-hoc reactive works. You will work closely with our client officers in Homes England, informing them of situations on the ground, suggesting solutions and working through to a reasonable conclusion. You will be a team player with good communication skills and will be expected to develop strong relationships with clients and contractors. You will be required to help mentor and develop junior staff and will be supported by the wider team to develop workstreams within the landscape management team. The successful candidate will be expected to travel to sites regularly, including occasional overnight stays.
