About the Role

Are you a recently qualified Architect who “smiles a lot”?

It’s rare that I get that as a requirement on the brief but they genuinely told me to look out for people who fit in with a business that doesn’t take itself too seriously. To be fair, if you don’t smile very often now, you would do if you worked here.

Imagine any 5 days out of 10 working from home as a minimum (you could do one week on, one week off or any other arrangement).

On top of this there’s a flexi time system which means you can work 6 hour days then catch up when you’re able too or spread your normal hours across any pattern that works.

All without having to ask permission.

It makes things easier if you’re not really a morning person and like to lie in or if you get the jitters in the afternoon and like being 3 gins deep by 3pm.

And who wants to work overtime? Nobody in this practice apparently. It’s not really a thing.

They promote a very systematic, tracked, high quality CPD Programme too, as well as support for all professional charterships and professional development plans. It’s all targeted at getting you promoted up the ladder in the best way possible.

The vast majority of Senior Management got promoted from within in this way from this very position.

It’s clear why they want people who can smile to work there isn’t it. It’s so you fit in, because everyone who is employed there is happy at work. They can back this up by the fact; nobody leaves. Before I worked with them, I literally never once managed to get someone out.

The Social Value element is on point too, there’s a massive amount of sustainability projects coming through the door but to prove that further, they got B Corp certified a few years ago.

The Job:

360 Design and Delivery on major projects of national concern.
Working on new and existing High Rise, and other commercial buildings, retrofitting cladding and sustainability solutions when you first start. Moving onto a variety of other commercial projects thereafter.
You’ll be working really closely with a couple of other disciplines, local authorities and government departments when it comes to the sustainability side. Lots of coordination.

About you:

Qualified as an Architect for 0 - 3 years.
Good quality all rounder, though no problem with front end or delivery leaning.
No need to have any particular sector experience. But experience on complex project types is important.
You’ll need to know Revit.
You tend to get along with everyone, communicate easily… smile sometimes.
