Your new role

Ideal experience would be city-based high-volume high-value developer-led schemes or large scale high volume residential developments, however experience within comparable buildings in terms of value and size would be considered, for the right person.

What you'll get in return
As a key part of this growing business you will be responsible for inspiring and mentoring internal teams, pitching and presenting to clients, developing design and provide technical leadership. Commercial management, new business strategies and proven strong relationships with key clients are also critical. This is a superb opportunity to join an organisation that are not only hungry to grow, but one that is keen to take on the challenge of improving on their design output.
