Chief Executive Officer - Landscape Institute
Chief Executive Officer
The Landscape Institute is at an exciting stage in our development. There could never be a more important time for our profession to deliver solutions to some of the biggest challenges of our time. Whether that’s a greener recovery, tackling the climate crisis, the nature crisis, health and wellbeing, or well as creating inclusive and accessible environments that celebrate our culture and diversity, the landscape profession should be at the forefront of this effort. It is in this context that we look for a new Chief Executive Officer.
At the heart of what the Landscape Institute does is our talented and varied membership. The LI provides a professional home for all landscape practitioners including landscape scientists, landscape planners, landscape architects, landscape managers and urban designers. The landscape profession is as diverse and dynamic as the landscapes and habitats they work on.
We’re proud of what has been achieved but there is still much to do. We need a CEO who will support our members in realising the exciting opportunities we have to deliver the landscape solutions that connect People, Place and Nature. The Board of Trustees is also aware that we need to match our ambition with the careful stewardship of our resources, and our new CEO will need to balance both external and internal priorities. As one of our key ambassadors you will need to be credible, persuasive, and politically astute, as well as having a facilitative style of leadership and proven capabilities in organisational, financial and people management and service delivery. Our new CEO will be someone who values and is able to harness the diverse skills, knowledge and experience of our membership and have the confidence to devolve, create and widen membership participation. Above all, our new CEO will contribute to making the landscape profession is a career choice for more people of all ages and backgrounds.
