If you want to actually work in Shropshire then it might feel like there isn't much around. It's hard to maximise on things like salary and big projects, it's hard to keep your career moving forward at a pace if you're that way minded. You can sacrifice your life with a big commute, live away from home or use up all your local options before you get to where you want to be. 

Ideally, you would stay in one place where you can progress quickly, get appreciated, actually get to design things, actually get some responsibility. 

You wouldn't need to win the work but you'd need to be heavily involved in it. You'd actually have to put yourself in the clients shoes, think about creating attractive buildings, but also consider cost, take responsibility. This is a million miles away from design and build, this is a job where the Architect keeps some form of control, and you would be that Architect. 

It might not be for everyone, some people just want to deliver jobs and do purely technical work, others just want to do the fancy sketches. Can you think about and work on both?
