Intermediate Architectural Technician

If you're looking for this, we're looking for you

The opportunity

What will it be like to work as an Intermediate Technician with us? For starters, there’ll be variety. Variety of projects, clients, professional development opportunities and, of course, variety among the people you’ll work with.

As a team of passionate architects and designers, we like to challenge the status quo, delve into the real needs of a project, understand what our clients really want to achieve, and collaborate together to create world-class designs that shape the possibilities and spaces around us.

With your technical expertise, you’ll play a key part in that process, bringing to life the essence of a design through quality documentation, technical detail, and a flair for beautiful presentation.

The offer

Let’s be honest, we’re working in a way we’ve never worked before, which is why we’re committed to providing you with a flexible, agile and supportive working environment. In addition to the benefits and other good stuff you can see we offer below:

  • Our salary offerings are competitive and we recognise and reward those extra hours that can be required for tight deadlines
  • Your professional development is a priority which is why we have a bespoke in-house CPD programme, providing support and learning across both the technical, design and wide ‘soft skills’ required in your career. This includes an in-house mentoring programme, cultural design training and ESD
  • We value our people and we’ve made it one of our strategic commitments to ensure that even when life gets busy, our culture doesn’t slip. Daily conversation, regular engagement, coffee rounds and social sports teams, we recognise the need for, and place value on, a supportive, collaborative and fun environment in which we can work, learn and play
  • We endorse flexible working arrangements because we know how important work/life balance is to employee wellbeing. There’s also car parking and EV charging at each of our studios and we make it a priority to have fun
  • Sustainability is ingrained in what we do, from our annual Sustainability Report to our internal sustainability committee. We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk when it comes to sustainable design practices. It’s our future after all.

You'll need key specialist skills

Did you know….

A famous architect once said, “There are 360 degrees, so why stick to one?”

Here at Chow:Hill, we ask a similar question. Why stick to one idea when there are so many out there? Why stick with one approach when the design industry is constantly changing? And, why stick with one job, when there’s another one presenting you with great opportunities.
