Part II Architectural Assistant

Newspaper Me no background_edited.png

Preston, UK

£28,000 - £32,000

Full Time


About the Role

Let’s face it you signed up to be an Architect because you were a bit Arty in college.

You probably didn’t sign up to spend most of your time delivering someone else’s project.

Or doing endless feasibility studies or planning applications instead of getting qualified.

That is precisely what most Part II’s spend nearly all of their time doing.

If you’re going to buck that trend, and have a strong front end focus, you want to do it early enough in your career, so it sticks.

Ideally you’d do it somewhere that it’s highly valued, that isn’t crowded with designers all arguing over design options for every staircase and hallway. Somewhere that you’d stand out, get easily recognised and progressed up the ladder quickly once you are qualified.

Somewhere that they aren’t complete b*ll ends would also be nice. Where you’re not doing overtime, where you get paid well and do get the chance to get promoted a couple of times in the next few years because it’s not a totally crowded management structure.

A place where you also wouldn’t be bored would be nice. You can be the best designer in the world but if all you’re designing is medical waiting rooms and residential layouts then you’re probably not living up to the dream either.

What if you had some serious variety; Indoor markets, Sports Stadia & some Leisure facilities, Education… even community projects, outdoor spaces, Historic and cultural buildings and more.

Is that closer to what you expected in your college days?

What you’ll need
