Job Description

Frustrated with your current role and have bags of energy/enthusiasm? No career progression on offer in your current practice? Looking for a better work/life balance? Passionate about playing an integral role in a start up? If this is the case, then please take a look at this opportunity!

White Space is currently working on behalf of an international consultancy that is setting up a design based Studio in central Reading with a view to building a 12-15 formidable team of talented Urban Designers/Masterplanners, Architects, Planners & Landscape Architects. They have a hugely talented, personable and well-connected Managing Director in place who has grand plans afoot and needs to surround himself with likeminded individuals at all levels. One of the key appointments for the success of this new office is a talented, ambitious and energetic Director/Associate Director level Urban Designer.

This office will serve as the European HQ for this major global force in the architecture & urban design sphere and will focus on projects throughout the UK, Europe and some of the Middle East region. The Studio will be predominantly working on projects at the early stages as the main office in the Middle East will act as the technical support. The MD is a well-known figure within the urban design/masterplanning circles so a huge portion of the workload will be from his contacts but there is definitely the need for this individual to have significant ownership going forward and bring in their own clients/projects. This will obviously form an important part of this individual’s roles and responsibilities.

In return you will receive an excellent salary & benefits package, superb variety of workload, join a successful start-up at the very early stages, equity stake down the line and the opportunity to travel and work on some truly amazing schemes!
