We are a bunch of straightforward, knowledgable and empathetic individuals who are passionate about architecture and the people who occupy this space.  Ultimately we see our job as to listen, to care, to connect and to challenge.  We are not backward in coming forward and aim to work closely with all of our clients and candidates to achieve the best outcomes possible.  Our mantra is to find the right solution for every role that we work on and for every person that we represent.


White Space is a connected, results focused and creative recruitment consultancy that cares.  With decades of specialist architecture and design recruitment experience between us we are fully plugged-in to our markets.  We know who to talk to and how to get there.  We recruit for some of the biggest names in architecture and a lot more besides.  Whether your dream is to work for a big name practice or a small up and coming outfit (or anything in between), or if you are a client needing to gain access to untapped talent, then we can help you achieve it.


To us it is not so much about sales, more about having a great relationship with you that leads to the perfect solution that you deserve.  Give us a try, the process will be fun and you won't be disappointed.
