Studio Sutton is seeking a Part 2 architectural assistant to join its growing team in London.

Studio Sutton is looking for a talented and highly motivated architectural assistant to join its team in London. The studio has a series of exciting projects within the commercial co-working, residential, hospitality and community sectors in the UK and internationally.

The role

The chosen candidate would welcome becoming an integral part of a small, dynamic and friendly team (including office dog Charlie) predominantly based in our studio near London Bridge. Being a small practice, the type of work and tasks undertaken are various and subject to regular change, requiring a positive and proactive attitude from all team members, working independently or collectively.

Current projects that the chosen candidate may be involved in are:

In exchange the studio will provide excellent mentoring and professional development opportunities through good exposure to all aspects of the operation of a friendly and ambitious architectural and interior design studio. We are passionate about all aspects of the design and aim to regularly attend relevant talks and exhibitions.

There is scope to work from home or elsewhere appropriate to suit your individual needs from time to time, beyond the pandemic. However, we will expect strong engagement and commitment in return for this flexibility. Government restrictions permitting, we will expect and encourage face to face collaboration as part of an energetic and driven studio culture. As such we are looking for candidates in or with easy access to Central London.
