Permanent position: £50k – £60k plus car allowance, bonus and package
Progression, professional development, climbing the ladder, whatever you want to call it, it’s very important to a portion of working professionals. Some people find career progression extremely nourishing for the soul, mastering the vocation they love and rising to the top of the tree.
Certain roles have a glass ceiling and have a much foggier view of the future, whereas others have progression in-built to the role, team, and company values. This is one such role.
My client has one of the best track records when it comes to professional development and promoting from within – this is evident across every single region and goes as high as the Chief Exec.
This particular position is a Senior Architectural Technician role that will progress to an Architectural Manager within a very modest about of time (3-9 months, depending on the person). This is not just pie in the sky as this role is the most senior architectural role within the (newish) region – a small period of proving yourself is required.
If that wasn’t enough there is also a Technical Manager’s position up for grabs in the medium, you just have the task of beating the Engineering Manager to it – but it’s there for the taking.
Ultimately this exciting role would benefit somebody who wants to kick on, somebody keen to climb the ladder, manage a team, all the while creating and delivering fantastic homes for first- and second-time buyers.
One thing undeniable about professionals in the technical function, whether they be architectural, or engineering is they really benefit from having an eye for detail. It sounds basic but when it comes to building houses and apartments, you need to get it right, or the structure may just fall down.
Once you rise to a certain level within residential development you will inevitably start managing a team, this position included. There will be two Arch Tech’s reporting into you, so you now have the added challenge of consultant coordination, reviewing drawings, and managing the day to day running of your small (but growing) team.
Luckily the Technical Director understands that management ability doesn’t always come from managing a team, some people just possess it. Because of that he doesn’t require management experience, even though it wouldn’t hurt.
