Architect required to join a busy, Cumbria-based design studio in close proximity to Windermere and several attractive locations in the region.
These types of roles are rare. I am often approached by people looking to relocate to the lake district and often this is met with a difficult response. That is all about to change, and I believe that the difficulties of the past 18 months have a lot to do with it. In the past 3 months I have been met with several new requests from Cumbria-based Architects looking for new staff to bolster their Architectural teams with exceptional new-hires. The pandemic has encouraged people to move away from big cities and the Lake district is an incredibly attractive proposition. New housing developments, schools and health facilities are popping up to meet with the increased demand.

The company have continued to establish themselves as one of the go-to Architectural brands in Cumbria, and as such as busier than ever. They are looking for a number of important new-hires to join the business, including an Architect. Primarily this new hire will be working on an exciting mixture of Resi, Education and Healthcare projects.

* REVIT experience would be beneficial, but is not essential for this role.
