Taylor Herrick Recruitment are proud to be representing one of Britain’s leading five star house builders on an exclusive basis. Having recently launched a new Midlands region we will be supporting their growth across all divisions. This organisation has been building homes as a family business for a hundred years and can boast tremendous amounts of awards coupled with an extremely low staff turnover and strong business culture. In addition to their Homes division, they also operate a mixed use and commercial development business and a Strategic land function. People are paramount to this business and therefore they operate a rigid recruitment process to ensure they work with the industries best talent. Their Homes portfolio constitutes a mix of exclusive homes in sought after areas, with the highest attention to detail and the best quality materials. Typical sites are circa 50 units however, they range from as little as 8 units with their largest site being 300 units.
They are initially looking for an Architectural Manager to join their Gloucestershire based office. As the business unit grows, you will be an important member of the management team working closely with a Procurement Manager and Contracts Manager. As this evolves, you will be expected to develop highly effective working relationships with both internal departments and also external consultants who are pivotal to the build success.
The role of Architectural Manager is fundamental to the success of the region. You will be required to take ownership of sites from viability stages through to completion.
The business has a house type portfolio; however, the nature of their sites dictate that from time to time you will be required to redesign house types accordingly. Your overall remit will be to work closely with the land team developing site viabilities, designing layouts, taking schemes through planning consent, producing full detailed working drawings and managing the build process, so in essence you will control both the design and technical elements of schemes. You will have the autonomy to appoint external consultants where necessary and draw on the resources of other regions.
In order to be considered for this role you will need to have previously worked in the role of Design Manager or Architectural Manager within house building. It is preferable that you will hold an industry recognised qualification or accreditation, or be qualified to degree level as a minimum. They look for key qualities in individuals who wish to join the business and will conduct a rigorous interview and selection process in order to determine whether you mirror their values and aspirations. To reiterate, this position will effectively combine design and technical so please only get in touch if you are happy to do both. It is preferable that you will have worked for a competitor; five star House builder with a reputation for prestigious design and quality.
The salary is reflective of experience and they offer a commendable and extensive benefits package.
