Buttress is looking for an Architect to work with our Arts, Culture and Heritage team on a wide range of conservation projects. Someone who believes in the positive development of our built heritage; keeping and adding to what makes a building special by responding to it with creativity and a sound understanding of the past.
You will be between 3 - 5 years qualified with an aspiration to become an accredited Conservation Architect. You will have a passion for all aspects of historic building work including ecclesiastical projects, and be equally as happy to consider and contribute to the conservation philosophy as you are to design and deliver practical fabric repair.
A proactive collaborator, you will work across the Buttress studio, applying your knowledge of sustainable conservation best practices and improvements in technology, legislation, and improved efficiencies to support effective delivery.
We use a range of professional software in the studio, and excellent skills in Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD are essential, as well as strong capability in the use of Adobe software.
Based in either our Manchester or Leeds studios, you will have the opportunity to engage with and support our culture, benefitting from opportunities to develop and grow, taking on more responsibility, and becoming a seasoned architect.
We understand that loving where you work is vital. We work hard to create a company culture that is supportive, inclusive and fun. We celebrate our differences and ensure that everyone has a voice and is respected, valued and heard. You will receive a competitive salary dependent on experience with a range of benefits, including enrolment onto our healthcare plan and pension scheme, and flexible working hours.
Interested? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and short portfolio, quoting reference BTTRSA03. Deadline for applications is Friday 21st January 2022.
What our staff say...
"I’ve always loved history and the stories of the past that have shaped our present. Working with historic buildings indulges my interest in history, whilst giving me the opportunity to safeguard and enrich it for others to enjoy.
Working in the heritage team, I also have the opportunity to apply my heritage training to some really interesting projects and help solve complex issues, which is something that I really enjoy.
Each project is different, with its own complexities, and I relish the exciting challenge each one brings. It is extremely rewarding to have responsibility for protecting our heritage and to play a part in continuing the story."
Lucy Ashcroft, Architect
