Job Details

We are currently on the hunt for an outstanding architect to join an established family run design and build company. With over 200+ projects across the London region in a year, this is a unique opportunity to work on a wide range of exciting and varied developments. This is a fantastic opportunity to take ownership of the role and help grow the business. 

The client is specifically looking for a UK registered architect with a specific expertise and background in private domestic developments ranging from loft, basement, and extensions projects.

To be considered for this role you must be RIBA/ARB registered, with a proven track record of excellence in the field of high-quality domestic architecture from client brief through to completion on site. You should be proficient in AutoCAD and the skills to showcase your ability to turn ordinary spaces into extraordinary ones. This is a chance to develop your skills further and take your career to the next level, working with a dynamic and enthusiastic team of designers and builders with aims of building your own team within the business.

As the lead in-house architect, you will be involved in every stage of the design process, from initial concept sketches to construction drawings, and everything in between. You will also play a key role in all developments and act as the “go to” person for any key decisions.

The successful candidate will receive a competitive salary of around £40-50,000 per annum. A view to opening a small studio in London. There will be the addition of an assistant once you’re successfully bedded in, so growth is definitely on the cards!

Here’s the important stuff:-

- Must be ARB/RIBA Qualified with minimum 3+ PQE

- AutoCAD expert

- Experience working on private domestic projects

- Loft / Basement / Extensions project experience

- able to lead multiple projects simultaneously 

- Excellent leadership skills

- Energetic and proactive

- Understanding of UK planning and building regulations

- Strong technical design skills

- Fully remote working (although monthly meetings in the HQ will be required)

If you are passionate about architecture and ready to join a company with a proven track record of success, apply now!


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.
