- Bring your passion for excellence in design (medium to high density)

We are seeking a blend of commercial nous, large scale project design experience, extensive technical competence and a desire to progress in your career! Salary is negotiable and generous, depending on how close you are to stepping into the Principal role.

The Opportunity

Within this delivery focused role you will be strategically and operationally driving the retirement living projects and portfolio, enjoying briefs that allow you to get excited architecturally. The sector is changing to be more urban, the walls are coming down! We are seeking a commercially savvy individual to drive this dynamic growth and inspire confidence in clients.

You will enjoy an environment where you are empowered to own your portfolio, lead processes, projects and people and hold a significant role within a practice.

Your rigorous organisation enables you to cope with wearing a few hats throughout the project life cycle, including:

- Management of the design process
- Drive significant and challenging Resource Consent processes
- Oversee technical aspects of design and documentation
- A balance of front end and site involvement
- Delivery and client focused
- Manage commercial aspects of the project

You will be supported by a dynamic project team including an Associate, Graduate and Senior Technician.

As this is a newly created role due to extensive growth, and as the organisation support the personal career goals of their people, you will have some input into the fine tuning of your Job Description.

We appreciate the confidentiality required to make a job enquiry at this level so please register your interest and we can arrange a time to have a discreet conversation with you to see if this opportunity matches your career goals. We can disclose that this role is with a great mid size Auckland practice who are about to relocate to a large convenient space.
