Gluckman Smith Architects are recruiting for talented Architect to join their growing team in the Cotswolds. We are an award-winning contemporary design practice established in 2010, with a strong belief in the power of architecture to change all our lives for the better. Our work includes residential, workspace and hospitality projects in both urban and rural locations, serving a wide variety of businesses, estates and private clients.

Projects often involve working with and responding to historic buildings and contexts. Our design process aims for an architecture which balances poetic and rational sensibilities. The practice is recognized for producing buildings where fresh thinking and a refined finish are desired in response to their context.

We are an enthusiastic team, who enjoy taking a proactive and positive approach to our work. We are a friendly and social Practice and maintain a strong work-life balance.

The role will involve providing a lead on projects through all RIBA work stages. You will report to the partners but also be able to work independently, within a dynamic team.

You should have excellent skills of communication and ability to manage projects. You should be confident working directly with clients, consultants, statutory authorities and contractors. Proficiency in CAD drawing and 3D visualisation is required and the ability to sketch by hand is desirable. A firm commitment both to innovative design and professional rigour will need to be demonstrated. You will be expected to work to budgets and deliver to deadlines.
