Competitive salary plus benefits
Our client is Britain’s award winning leading provider of privately owned later living accommodation. Property development is at the heart of their business, but as the needs of their homeowners have changed, they have also developed other services designed to provide homeowners with a greater life in later life.
An excellent opportunity has now arisen for an Architectural Technician to join the company in the Technical team at their office in Byfleet, Surrey, dealing with projects that have already obtained planning permission.
As Architectural Technician, you will be required to assist with a number of projects at any one time with the responsibilities of preparing working drawings, layouts and other details required by the site.

You will be required to use discretion as to which matters are referred to a higher level for decision. The successful candidate must have an accurate working knowledge of the relevant regulations, and ensure that designs comply with the requirements of the approval authorities.
