About Frame Projects
Frame Projects is a London-based, design-focused project management consultancy. We are leading experts in design review – providing independent expert advice to clients, design teams and planning authorities.
We manage multi-disciplinary design review panels on behalf of local councils and development corporations, as well as working nationally providing design advice on High Speed Two. We also facilitate community review panels, bringing in the knowledge and expertise of local people so that new development meets their needs and aspirations.
We are a small team, based in a canal-side converted warehouse, between Angel and Old Street tube stations.
We are looking for an architectural writer for design review to join our team in London. You could be an architect, landscape architect, urban designer or town planner – or you may have other built environment expertise, but you must be a confident writer with an eye for detail.
Working as part of the Frame Projects team, you will take lead responsibility for the management of three or four design review panels. The role will give you an opportunity to work collaboratively with local authorities and public sector clients to achieve the best possible design quality, by facilitating advice from professional and community panels.
You will be responsible for writing reports of design review meetings to a very high standard of precision and accuracy. Reports form the core of the role, so you will need to pride yourself on the quality of your writing. Strong project management capability and the ability to work with leading built environment professionals is also essential. Setting a constructive tone, and putting all those taking part at their ease, is also an important part of the job.
Outside the programme of design reviews, you will be involved in delivering training events, annual meetings and producing publications including newsletters, case studies and research reports.
- proficiency in writing about architecture and urban design
- a thorough understanding of the town planning process
- a built environment qualification, or experience of architecture and urban design
- team working and collaboration skills
- ability to work proactively and to lead projects
- graphic design skills are an advantage – we use InDesign
