About the Company

This long term established CBD based Architectural practice are in a stage of dynamic growth, both from a project perspective and the team. They currently have 18 staff with a vision to grow to 30 and their range of projects and clients also continues to grow.

The culture is values based, supportive and professional and with Directors being family focused themselves, this spills into the creation of a family feel within the team.

Having been in business for decades, their reputation and service delivery holds a level of excellence that stands out in the architectural industry and this shows up in their thoughtful, reasoned and provoking project designs.

About the opportunity

With the practice manager returning home overseas, this has created a great opportunity for a highly skilled all rounder to step in and make the job their own. There is opportunity to turn your hand to a myriad of tasks and if you have a creative edge (even architectural and/or design knowledge) this will definitely be an advantage.

With any practice management job, tasks can vary, change, grow and adjust. Here is a list of what you are likely to encounter:

- Marketing and branding initiatives
- Business development support and research and you can even make calls yourself if you are that way inclined
- Human Resources support for recruitment, new starters and general policy management
- Liaise with suppliers, eg: CAD software suppliers, Accountant and general
- Be the generalist "GO TO" person in the office; you stay on the pulse of goings on!
- Support the three Directors by driving their vision within the practice
- Help turn their goals into projects

From a technically savvy perspective, it will be ideal if you have previous experience with Xero and WorkFlow Max, and even InDesign so you can assist in putting together proposals. There is a lot more this practice could do with WorkFlow Max so a professional level of expertise here will be welcomed.

About you

The type of person that will fit into this culture is one who is keen to add value to a culture rather than define the culture, one who has a vision for excellence and is keen to be part of an evolving company, culture and job.

You will be values based meaning you make sound decisions based on integrity. You are all about supporting the business, Directors and being there for the greater team when they need support.

What's in it for you?

This is a genuine opportunity to make the role your own, including the flexibility to take it in the direction you choose. It's all about growth here right now so the timing is perfect to offer such flexibility.

You will be remunerated generously and above all else, you will be not only walking through but part of driving an exciting time of change for this practice.

Please note that only applicants that have eligibility to work in NZ, will be considered for the role.
