Work With Us

Current opportunities August 2010

Origin Garden Design is looking for an experienced freelance garden designer to join our team. Experience is essential, a minimum of three years.

We design bespoke modern gardens which are built to a very high standard. We are looking for someone to blend with our existing design style. Being able to design well with curved shapes (that's what we're known for) would be beneficial, however, we we can offer some guidance in our style of designing.

We are looking for more than just a garden designer, you must be a good communicator, easy to get along with, and work well with a group. At Origin we pride ourselves on good design but more importantly, on serving our clients wishes and exceeding their expectations. As an Origin Designer, you must be able to carry out site visits when the garden is being constructed (usually once a week) and liaise with clients and our contractors.

If you work well with us, there are opportunities to become a partner in the firm in the long term. In the short term we need someone that can successfully represent Origin to our customers to a high standard, with confidence. If you already have an existing consultancy that you wish to run at the same time, that is fine as long as our work gets the attention it deserves. Whilst we cannot guarantee how much design work will come in, on average it's two to three gardens a month.

We work in Essex, Suffolk and Cambridge. If you think you may be suitable to be part of our team please send a CV to including links to photographs of your work and example plans. Good presentation style is needed, plans can be in CAD or hand drawn.

We get a lot of inquiries about taking on new designers, but regrettably, we simply do not have the time to train somebody to that degree. So if you are recently qualified, with little experience, please don't apply!

Thank you for your interest.
