Cross Works (XW) is on the lookout for an experienced project architect to join its growing team in London, working remotely until further notice.
We are a friendly, enthusiastic and highly motivated collective of individuals, looking to grow rapidly and sustainably to meet a healthy surge in new work. We aspire to bring together individuals who are creative, conscientious and collaborative, and whose desire is to thoroughly meet and very often exceed our client’s needs and expectations, whilst maintaining a healthy work-life balance. We envisage that the new recruit will be a long term part of the Cross Works collective going forward and welcome those who would like to develop as a core member of a growing business.
Why We Need You
We’re a cross-disciplinary team, working on a range of projects across sectors and regions globally.
We’re currently focused on architectural work at different scales/typologies, and larger urban design/masterplanning schemes, although this specific role will require expertise in residential buildings in the UK.
Experience and knowledge in residential-led mixed-use will be an added bonus.
