Job Details

A very exciting position has become available, now that my client has widened their brief and are now interested in reviewing prospective candidates that can work from either their Shrewsbury or central Birmingham offices (Headquartered in Shrewsbury). They are a nationwide practice, that are towards the top of the AJ100 list and work across a wide variety of different sectors. They take on Education, Residential, Commercial, Leisure, Transport and Logistical schemes.   

They are a team of 50 strong in Shrewsbury and have 4 of their staff based in Birmingham, but with extra capacity to accommodate either a Part II or Architectural Technician - ideally with a strong Revit proficiency.
