Being an Architect that doesn't ever design or even never working on the delivery stages is a bit like being an Ice Cream man who only serves cones. Some people like just serving cones; each to their own. 

If you design house extensions all day then, you'll probably get to do both already. If not and you're looking for a fairly equal spread then you might want to find out what they're actually about. 

From Manchester all of their posh award-winning stuff goes out. I mean the genuinely high-end towers, the big third sector projects and even the small projects (£15m is small to them) use a variety of interesting building materials, unique design usually simple, elegant. You're going to learn to appreciate simplicity and in tweaking your design work to their style realise how to accentuate that simplicity. 

Trust me when I say you'll be well rewarded. Salaries are up there, but so is the annual bonus. They take that stuff seriously, at Technician got a £7k bonus there last year for managing a particularly demanding project and client. Have you thought what even half of that in a lump sum could do for you?

You could be someone who is a year or two post qualified, or you could be ten years post qualified. Either way within that range they know they can offer you at least five solid years of progression. The kind of progression that doesn't just include pay rises but could help you reach Associate. 

It's a big company which you'll either be very pleased to hear to unhappy about. It's also a small office with a close-knit family feel which might balance whatever you were feeling from the last sentence right out. There certainly aren't many other people between you and your next step up the ladder, but you get the resources and support of an AJ100. 

You get real job satisfaction from a couple of things: 

Being appreciated (and that includes money). 

Having responsibility, being challenged and getting targeted promotions. 

Variety is certainly in there, you'll dabble in most sectors at all stages, it's only if the project is right they'll move ahead with it. 

Three big boxes I can tick for you with this job.
