Architect (open to Exp P2) - Great Culture, Work-Life Balance!

Do you want to look forward to coming to work every day? As well as get the chance to work on quirky, offbeat projects that occasionally challenge the boundaries of planning?

Every studio says they have a "great office culture" - however in this case we have it on good authority from current + former staff that they actually do! This studio's team has been described as "lovely" and "young + vibrant". And the office culture? "Not stressful! Unlike some places I have worked". They're a 12-strong studio that works + plays together with regular Thursday night drinks to blow off steam (attenendance optional) + Fridays WFH (unless you want to come in - apparently half of them actually prefer to do so!) And long-hours culture is non-existent.

The company was started by an Ex-Fosters architect who wanted to bring their experience with a top studio to infuse a start-up + create a place where people would look forward to coming to work. Project-wise, they do a variety of scales, from multi-storey offices to one off homes featured on national TV + in the press (with one eco-house so contemporary that the planning officers must have been drunk)

They're looking for someone fun + friendly to join the team! The immediate project need is for stage 4 of an ongoing commercial project (that's in MicroStation - they also work in Revit). However, it's a small studio, so as you can expect, everyone ultimately works on everything + you can take on as much responsibility as you want to grow + develop your skill set.

The right person has:

  • At least 2 years of industry experience
  • MicroStation proficiency (some Revit a plus but not essential)
  • Good communicator, good in front of clients
  • Self starting and pro active, plenty of enthusiasm!
  • Ideally some stage 4 experience

Benefits include 25 days holiday (including Xmas period when office closed), private healthcare (spouses + family included), pension, flexible Fridays wfh.
