The right candidate is motivated, able to adapt and passionate about helping our practice to flourish. With plenty of upcoming projects, if you’re ready for a fresh start we would love to hear from you. 

This is a full-time position, however, part-time hours would be considered to accommodate the ideal candidate.

Working at [HEM] has taught me so much. There are opportunities to learn from all of the Architects in the office & I have worked closely with the directors on every project. [The Practice] has a great attitude towards helping you to learn, offering study leave & the opportunity for site visits, sitting in on projects reviews from the other teams, as well as a general collaborative design ethos…
