Architects recruitment agency listing
Working as part of the creative / design industries, the role of an architect is to design the construction of buildings and spaces that meet the requirements of their clients. As well as working on new structures, an architecture professional may also restore existing buildings and be responsible for drawing up plans, managing costs and supervising the construction process. Due to the in demand skills required of candidates, specialist architect or creative / design recruitment agencies are needed to source suitable and capable employees for their clients' vacancies.
The starting salary for architects is around £18K per annum although this can vary depending on location or size of practice. A fully registered professional can expect to earn £30K+ although further experience could see this rise to £40K-£50K. Much of the work is office based, however candidates may be required to visit construction sites or meet clients and partners. London and the South East usually offers the best job opportunities with average salaries here being considerably higher than the rest of the UK.
In order to become a registered architect, candidates will usually have to complete five years of an ARB accredited course followed by two years of industry experience. This route is considered a three part process which includes the completion of an undergraduate degree, attaining a diploma, Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) or Master of Architecture (MArch) and then undergoing a period of paid work. Candidates who are working within an architectural practice and aren't able to undertake full time study may qualify for an office based course accredited by RIBA.
Architects looking to enter the field needs to be methodical, a good communicator and have the ability to lead a team. They should also have strong maths, CAD and scientific skills. Specialist architect recruitment agencies will have experience in sourcing staff with these qualities and be able to effectively fill permanent and contract positions.
