This is a business unit leader role the successful candidate will be expected to have an interest in the business aspects of the role, experience leading people, developing clients, and winning work as well as having a flair for design.

This is quite a unique role. The clients mostly already exist within the business unit and are there to be developed and nurtured. They merely need a suitably ambitious Architect, looking to lead a business unit, with the support of a multi discipline team.

Previous experience of working on multiple projects simultaneously is required.
