Job description

My client is an entrepenurial house builder in Kent who are looking for a Design Manager from a strong architectural background in a new position for the business due to growth.


As Design Manager, you will ideally be coming from a reputable Architectural Practice and have worked on multi unit residential projects for developers and house builders. This is a very much front end role within the development cycle and you will need to be a confident and well abled individual who can work alone as part of a team.


You will essentially be taking projects from pre planning, working with the land team on potential future sites, taking them through the design and planning process to the point of planning being granted where this will then be handed over to the in house technical team to deliver the project. You will also be responsible for setting up the standard house types within the business as they evolve and expand further. 


You may be an Associate, Partner or Architectural Designer in Practice who is looking for that new role in a client side role. This is a senior and important position for the business so will be worth considering if you're thinking of making a move.


Key Responsibilities


  • Ideally degree qualified in Architecture or other relevant degree.
  • Have experience of multi unit residential projects, ideally working with clients who are house builders or developers (e.g. Redrow, Barratt, Persimmon, Bellway etc).
  • Experienced in the front end development cycle (especially across the design and planning process before hand over to the technical team.
  • Confident in taking the lead, working alone as well as part of a team.
  • Feasibility studies, setting up the standard house types for the business as they grow.
