Airport Architect. Associate Director
Vacancy for an Associate Director with a practice that has an enviable track record in the airport sector. As part of the practices CPD programme, the Associate Director will be mentored by both the Head of Airport Design and also the ex Managing Director of the practice. This kind of investment in professional development is extremely rare and absolutely priceless for people who would like to take their career to the top level.
We imagine that this role could appeal to senior architects or associates who are looking for greater exposure and a chance to shine within their chosen field. The client is happy to look at people from either architectural technician, technologist or architect backgrounds.
The role requires an individual with extensive airport project experience and ideally some site experience. The successful candidate will be client facing and responsible for leading airport projects. The schemes tend to be for existing UK airports or smaller international projects. The practice is already on the frameworks for most major UK airports and has completed projects ranging from new terminal buildings to control towers, departure lounges and full passenger experience studies.
There is a huge knowledge base within the team so the person who takes this role will have good people to work with and an excellent practice portfolio to present to prospective clients.
Whilst business generation is a part of this role, we are not necessarily looking for an out and out business developer. The company wins work through their knowledge and credibility so they want to hire someone who fits in with this principle.
The appointed individual will work very closely with the head of airport design and also with colleagues who are specialists in offices, hotels and the retail sectors. The practice believes in working collaboratively and pooling their knowledge and resources for the best possible result so we really do need a good team player who is good at working and communicating with extended project teams.
Please get in touch if you would like to know more. Interviews will be occurring throughout September and early October.
