Summer Student Internship

PWL Partnership Landscape Architects Inc. is a leading Landscape Architectural and Urban Design firm with a strong focus on sustainable design and planning. Our practice undertakes a wide range of projects located throughout Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, including park design, urban design, open space planning, mixed-use developments, institutional projects and multi-family residential neighbourhoods. We are a progressive company that provides a supportive, team-focused work environment.

We are currently accepting applications for our annual student internship program. This position is open to students returning to their studies in the fall and currently studying in a Master of Landscape Architecture program or Landscape Architectural Technology program. If you enjoy working in a busy, team-oriented atmosphere and are keen to meet the challenges of a diverse range of projects, we want to hear from you!

The summer student internship program's objective is to create an opportunity for a student returning to understand the everyday workings of a design firm. The position will start at the beginning of May and will continue through to the end of August. PWL will introduce you to a range of project types, scales, and stages during your office time. You will work with a number of our staff members to develop a rich understanding of the diversity of the profession of Landscape Architecture.

We are a group of enthusiastic, hardworking and curious team players and will be seeking a student with similar personality traits. In addition to a positive outlook, exceptional written, graphic and verbal communication skills and knowledge of Vectorworks or related CAD software, Adobe Suite applications and skills in 3D modelling will be considered key elements to your skillset.

Please send your resume and portfolios to [email protected] in PDF format (maximum pages 25; 15MB max file size). The deadline for receiving applications is Wednesday, April 14th, 2021, at 5 p.m. PST. We thank all applicants in advance for their interest and effort; however, only those invited for interviews will be contacted.

Due to current pandemic restrictions, we are not able to consider international applications at this time. Please apply only if you currently reside locally or regionally in Vancouver, BC. Our office will continue to operate remotely until public health directives have changed.
