10/01/2020 We are hiring!

Based in the rural North Oxfordshire countryside, we are a small practice looking for a resourceful, independent and creative experienced Part 2 or recently qualified Part 3 to join our team.

We work on projects ranging from Passive standard new-builds, sensitive listed building refurbs to small housing developments. Every project we do is different with an emphasis on the right design for each specific site/client/brief. Common threads from sustainability to fine detailing run throughout.

As we are a small practice the ability to think independently and work pro-actively in an organised manner is key. A willingness to cross-pollinate ideas and engage and communicate with the rest of the office and clients is essential.

Your work would span all stages of our projects, from concept design, presentation graphics and model making, to construction drawings and site visits. An interest in ‘building things’ and the practical side of architecture is crucial.

We are a Vectorworks based practice but can assist with a transition across from other CAD software. We also use Sketchup, Photoshop and InDesign.

Fluency in the English language is vital and experience working in the UK is beneficial.

Being a rurally based studio with projects spread across a wide area, applicants must have a full driving licence and their own transport.

Salary will be dependent on experience and in line with RIBA guidelines.

Please send your CV and key examples of your work to info@charlieluxton.com. We will contact shortlisted applicants for interview. No agencies please.

Charlie Luxton Design is an equal opportunities employer.
