Home » News » Architectural Technician

PCMS is a project management and architectural design firm working on a varied mix of public sector and residential projects. A new vacancy has arisen within our team for an Architectural Technician.

The role of Architectural Technician is to support projects by developing designs and specifications according to strict deadlines and to meet a budget. The role includes liaising other team members and third-party contractors or consultants in order to co-ordinate design details and resolve technical issues.

The successful candidate will have a university degree or equivalent qualification in the field of architecture, engineering or building surveying, and a minimum of 3 years direct work experience in an architectural technician capacity, including all aspects of building design and specification. A good working knowledge of current construction techniques, statutory requirements (Building Regulations, Building Bulletins, CDM Regulations, etc) and non-statutory design guidance is essential, in addition to demonstrated experience in Computer Aided Design (CAD).

The experience of working both independently and in a team is important. The ability to effectively prioritise and execute tasks in a time-constrained environment is crucial, as are strong interpersonal skills.

Some local / regional travel may be required for the purpose of meeting with clients or contractors, and candidates will need to have a full driving licence. Depending upon the nature of the projects, there may be a requirement for a CRB check to be carried out.

This is a full-time role but a working pattern over 4 days per week would be considered.

To apply for this vacancy, please email your CV to info@pcmsdesign.co.uk with a covering letter explaining why you will be a good fit for this position. Please also include details of your current salary / expectation of salary.
