Project Architect for Large Homegrown Manchester Practice
£32k - £37k
Manchester City Centre
This is a completely homegrown Manchester practice of 40 staff. Manchester is the head office (and sole office in fact). The Directors are refreshingly made up of a mix of Architects and Technicians. The projects are an interesting mix of highly technical and design lead.
Big enough to be a regional if not national name. Small enough so you won't get lost and become a number.
The practices current focus is on the next generation of major project leaders and Associates. That is why they don't want a very Senior Architect. Something around 5 years Post qualification experience give or take a few years is likely to be about the right level.
They've got some amazing experience in house, individuals you can learn from. You can learn the most advanced aspects of BIM collaboration, Revit Software usage and even software engineering.
Hand sketching, amending design, project leadership, client management; all part of the duties you will be mentored in.
You will learn from 2 or 3 of Manchester's VERY BEST Project leaders and Associates, who know how to produce design solutions to every complex building type from Heavy Industrial to Healthcare, from High Density Residential to High Rise Apartments.
They need you to be switched on, engaged and above all ambitious. There is room to ask questions; to continue your development on LOCAL High Rise, Industrial, Health, Large Change of use schemes...
You'll get out on site, deal with sub consultants, suppliers and generally be pushed to the fore.
This isn't an AJ Top 10 practice where you will make the tea, do the visualisation and take a bit of a back seat. Instead, you'll be pushed forward and importantly; rewarded with promotion and an every growing need to give you higher and higher levels of responsibility.
Sense of humour is essential to work with this particular organisation and team.
