I've specialised in Architectural Recruitment for over four years in Auckland now and this has to be one of the most autonomous, exciting, design branding driven vacancies I have recruited for.

This is a genuine opportunity to make your mark as an Auckland Architect and create (or enhance) your personal brand and reputation. Who knows, you may even win an award if that is what excites you.

__The Project__

This successful businessman and developer has purchased another parcel of land and is ready to get started on concept design. I've just seen pictures of the initial design ideas and they are very impressive . He is very open to a local registered architect putting their mark on to the design idea, changing things around, getting creative!

This is an Auckland based project that will be six levels, with the ground level being two large commercial spaces, then five floors encompassing 28 apartments. The intention is to have luxury penthouse apartment living and outdoor spaces on the top floor.

The next project, to be designed almost simultaneously, is 8 x three level terrace houses in a West Auckland location.

We have details of previous projects to share with qualified candidates.

__The Vision__

This is the simple part. Take the projects above and create __Wow Factor__ so locals drive by, look up, and are amazed at your design!

__About you__

You will have evidence of apartment design experience on your CV either here or overseas and you are currently a NZ Registered Architect, ideally with 7-10 years of experience.

You will be values driven, wanting to design something for the good of the community, take ownership like never before and burst through the glass ceiling of your potential.

Your confidence and humility is refreshing.

__Next steps__

As this is a significant opportunity, please do call me to confidentially discuss your interest.

If it is hard for you to find space for a confidential discussion just now, do email me your CV to

We are working quickly as the owner is keen to get things started.

I urge you to take the plunge and change your career forever!
