Senior Project Architect
Waterland Associates are a busy, Northamptonshire based practice specialising in Education, Conservation, and high-end residential projects. Our project base ranges from multi-million pound master-planning exercises, through medium sized, mainly educational projects with a contract value range from £1-5m, large one-off houses and a wide range of smaller projects.
We are looking for a senior ARB registered architect, with min 5 years post-qualification experience (only UK registered architects, or exact equivalent will be considered for the role) to manage our project delivery team, including:
- Client liaison
- Concept design
- Detailed design and consultant team management
- Low-carbon design and retrofit decarbonisation
- Project management
- Contract administration
- Salary: Circa £50k dependent upon experience (plus benefits).
There is potential for the role to develop quickly to shareholder/director level.
The successful candidate will need to be:
- Very well organised
- A good, systematic communicator
- Confident to operate in a diverse and demanding working environment,
Since 2020 the office has been fully remote. However, we are looking at the options for re-establishing a physical office (probably in Northampton) as a base for operation.
Our team are based across Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire, and we are not planning to go back to predominantly office-based working. Consequently, the successful candidate will need to be comfortable with flexible hybrid working and managing projects in a digital working environment (Lots of meetings on Teams and in cafes across the East Midlands).
A good working knowledge of the following will be essential:
- Planning legislation
- Building regulations
- JCT Contract forms
- AutoCAD (Lt)
- NBS Corus
- IT systems (windows 365, MS Office applications etc)
- Dogs (and their occasionally grumpy owners)
