Job Details

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
  • Planning
  • Detailed design and consultant team management
  • Low-carbon design and retrofit decarbonisation
  • Project management
  • Tender
  • 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:

  • Creative
  • 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)
  • Revit
  • NBS Corus
  • IT systems (windows 365, MS Office applications etc)
  • Dogs (and their occasionally grumpy owners)

If you think you fit the bill, send a CV in pdf format (max 5Mb) to Please note only emailed CVs will be considered. Please do not contact us by phone.



We are a small and busy Chartered practice of architects and interior designers, based in North Northamptonshire with a fast growing project base in (amongst other things) Education, Conservation and Rural Housing.
