Part II Architectural Assistant
dRMM are radical makers of sustainable, socially useful architecture with studios in London and Berlin. Our thriving Stirling Prize-winning studio works on exciting, innovative projects across all scales and sectors in the UK, Germany and overseas. Current projects range from a floating swimming pool on a repurposed barge to pioneering community-led housing estate renewal, a CLT primary school to a large scale infrastructure project, and an ingenius new model for industrial estates to cutting edge research into the benefits of building in timber. We are in the process of becoming B- Corp certified.
Our studio culture is one of openness and warmth and we welcome people of all backgrounds. Our team is very international. We are proud to have gender parity at every level, including director level. We have built a studio that attracts like-minded designers who are interested in collaboration, experimentation, and who share a sensitivity towards people, places and planet. Team members are empowered to bring their whole selves to work in a supportive environment in which they can grow, personally and professionally.
We are looking for motivated and talented Part II Architectural Assistants to join our team in London to work on a variety of projects. Rather than specialising in one sector or project stage, you will be exposed to different stages of design from early concepts to completion, through design development and technical design. A high level of design competency is required. You will be expected to work as part of a project team; research and develop architectural and technical solutions and coordinate designs with other consultants; work with BIM; generate CAD drawings and schedules, reports, and visualisations and build architectural models.
You will have excellent English communication skills, be well organised and have a proven track record of working both independently and as part of a team. You will show great flexibility and versatility to work on various project types, at various stages and scales. You will demonstrate good ability to learn from your peers as well as independently. Knowledge of the German language is advantageous.
Good knowledge of Revit and Adobe Creative Suite is a minimum requirement; knowledge of Rhino, SketchUp, Vectorworks/ Autocad and rendering software is advantageous.
We have a very sociable and relaxed studio atmosphere, and our architectural assistants play a full and active role within it, with opportunities to take on responsibility within projects and for extracurricular events and activities.
We support architectural assistants working towards their Part 3 with up to five days’ paid study leave.
Salary: dRMM salary band 3 (£29.7k – £31.8k) dependent on experience and compliance with our salary banding, which is annually benchmarked to ensure team members are paid fairly.
