Costs for Registered members

Free to AILA Registered Landscape Architects.

Free to firms or practices employing an AILA registered landscape architect in the local office.
Registered members should ensure that their employers are aware that practices that advertise (for free) are benefitting from registration of their AILA registered employees.

Free to Government/University departments directly employing a AILA Registered Landscape Architect.
This applies to the particular department/section - not the whole University of other government sections/departments. If in doubt - contact the national office.

Firms with multiple offices: the advert is free for the office placing the advert  - fees usually apply if placed for other branches of your firm where there is no direct employment of an AILA Registered Landscape Architect.

The free placement applies to the department employing the registered landscape architect - fees usually apply if placing for other offices or departments within the government agency or university.


Costs for agencies and non-members: $330.00 including GST.

Employment agencies placing adverts for landscape architects (members) are required to pay a fee per vacancy advertised. Multiple placements/jobs by outside agencies - require multiple fees - please email through advert(s) for quote.

Placement Agencies please note: If you are placing an advert for a registered landscape architect or their firm, the fee applies. The free placement only applies if the registered landscape architect (or their practice) places the advertisement directly.

Overseas non-members: Practices/organisation outside Australia with no AILA member on staff, need to make contact with the National Office to arrange payment in advance (email/fax/credit card) of the advertisement being uploaded to the web site.

AILA reserves the right not to place advertisements - this may apply to members and non-members.


Ads stay on the site for one month and new listings are included in the regular (usually weekly) AILA emailed communique.

Please note: Once uploaded, jobs are not relisted within the same month - that is we do not relist the same job just to have it move to the top.  After the month is up, yes all jobs can be relisted once we receive the request to do so - but not booked in advance.

Jobs are usually uploaded within 48 hours - but it depends on the National Office workloads. Sometimes almost straight away!
