Not just any Architect can get this job. It's for the few. We usually spend most of the space on a job advert convincing people of the virtues of the job we're working on. This time we're trying to put you off. 

We need someone who has a background in Manchester's top practices. Think of those big, award-winning names, then reduce it to the top 5 or 6 that came to mind. We're looking for Associates or Directors from those exclusively.

Why? Well, we're working for a company in the midst of a great deal of change. They're restructuring Senior Management company-wide, especially in the Architecture Department. Getting rid of dead wood and changing the culture. In two years they'll be unrecognisable. They will have shed the current consultancy image and will present an attractive design lead studio feel, albeit they are a company that employs thousands in the UK and tens of thousands worldwide. 

You'll have two or three other Senior people put in around you once you've started, then you'll have 15 - 20 Architects, Technicians and Architectural Assistants on projects within 12 months. 

Your job is to lead the cultural and design change in the region, and have a hand in the rollout of this nationwide, even worldwide. 

Get in touch to discuss where you go from here.
