Life as an architect London

job shadow opportunities

Opportunity Overview

It takes 7 years to become an architect; if you can spend a day (or three) with an architecture firm before you commit, would that be a good idea? James has been the co-founder of an award winning (we've seen his awards and trophies) architecture practise for more than 20 years. He loves the work and what the business has achieved and is keen to share his experience with others. He has a firm of around 20 staff, so anyone spending time here gets a flavour of everything.

What you will learn

  • Training and qualifications
We'll explore typical routes into architecture and how someone who was wanting to move into this field could pursue various options to achieve this.
  • The money
We can discuss what you'd typically earn as an architect from when you start through to what is realistic after a number of years.
  • The shape of the market
I can give you an overview of what I see happening in the market - will there be more demand in the future for housing? Co-working space? Where might you best invest your time vs what the market might be demanding?
  • What is the value of different days?
I'm offering three half days in the office so you can get a feel of the various parts of life as an architect: the client sales phase, the diagnostic/design phase, the build/project management phase and the completion. You can ask me any questions about what you'd be likely to experience and learn what I'm working on right now.
  • Answering your questions
Ultimately, this is your time and your space, so prepare a couple of your own questions. Remember - there is no such thing as a stupid question! I'm here to help and happy to go through what you may be curious about.
