A Senior / Associate Architect with an Architectural background is required to work on a 6 month contract basis in London.

Job Role

Our client continues to be successful in the Education sector and in the last few weeks our client has secured a number of new schools and colleges for our Architects to design. Our clients have a requirement for one or two Senior / Associate-level Architects (Contract Workers) to join them to either lead on these new school design projects or to take on existing projects from current team members who will be taking on the new projects. Our clients are not sure what kind of market exists for experienced contract Architects in this sector but know that they need of any candidates submitted to be very experienced in the design of Schools and/or Colleges – our client need to be high quality designers who can take ownership for the delivery of projects and help maintain the great relationships that we have with Clients.

The initial opportunity is for a 6 month contract with ongoing extension likely. There is also the potential for temp-to-perm transfer if that is something the candidate wants to consider. Temp-to-perm is not essential and if candidates only want to remain Contract Workers then that is fine. Target base location is London or Epsom but can accommodate Contract Workers in Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham or Warrington if they have the right kind of experience of leading on projects with the Education / Schools sector.
