We appreciate your interest in GRID architects. We view and assess all applications and by following these simple guidelines we can do so more effectively.
We appreciate your interest in GRID architects. If you would like to apply for a position, either in response to an advertisement or as a speculative enquiry, we will give your application careful consideration. In order to help us please follow these simple guidelines.
Applicants should have true design and communication flair evidenced through a strong portfolio and project track record. Excellent presentation and communication skills are essential. Ideally you should have experience of working on UK residential projects, with a working knowledge of UK regulations and guidance, and with excellent written and verbal communication in English. It is an advantage if candidates live and work, or have worked, in the UK. Applicants must have the necessary Visas to work in the UK and a National Insurance Number - GRID cannot sponsor or obtain work permits.
If you would like to apply for a position, please email a short CV ( 2 pages ) and attach a JPEG or PDF of a comprehensive portfolio of your work to:
firstname.lastname@example.org (do not use any other email addresses or personal addresses of GRID employees). Do not include links to FTPs or personal websites. Recruitment company emails will not be opened at this email address. We cannot accept hard copies of CVs.
We endeavour to respond to all applications but this can take several weeks owing to the volume of applicants at certain times.
Interviews will only be held in person in London and you may be asked back for a second interview. You will be asked to present your portfolio and CV in hard copy, ideally at A3 or larger, or on a screen. For the latter option please bring a USB using a PDF or similar format. Please do not present on a laptop or tablet. Feel free to tell us of travel restrictions and the most suitable attendance times so we can accommodate you as best we can.
