Dreaming of Playing a Pivotal Role at an Architectural Studio? ️✍️
Are you a Studio Manager with a passion for organization and a flair for administration? Interested in making a big impact in a dynamic environment within the architectural world? Here's your moment to shine!
There's an exciting role up for grabs in the heart of Manchester. This award-winning architectural firm is on the hunt for a Studio Manager to wear multiple hats for a maternity cover contract that spans one year. And trust me, this role isn't just about being at the helm of the administrative functions of the Manchester office. It's about being a central figure in the project team, ensuring everything runs like a well-oiled machine.
Imagine this: One moment you're diving deep into project administration, ensuring teams align with internal Quality Management procedures, and the next, you're streamlining office operations, handling everything from switchboard management to setting up all those fun, energizing social occasions that everyone looks forward to. If you've got previous PA experience and the innate ability to juggle tasks like a pro, you're already on the right track.
Now, it's not just about what you've done but also about how you've done it. The ideal candidate? Someone who's proficient with the Microsoft Office suite, has experience in the architecture or design-focused industry, and isn't a stranger to managing data systems. If you've got a knack for Adobe suite skills (especially InDesign and Photoshop), that's a massive bonus! But beyond the skills, it's your approach that counts. You're collaborative, effective under pressure, and possess an uncanny ability to prioritize to meet those looming deadlines.
Hold on, there's more to this role than just hard work. There are perks that'll make you do a double-take:
A competitive salary and benefits that aren't just about the money but your well-being.
Generous annual leave, including a full office closure over the festive period.
A flexible working policy that acknowledges you're at your best when you have balance.
From a Health 'Cash Plan' to eyecare vouchers, there's a lot in store.
If you're a cyclist, you'll love the Cycle to Work scheme, and if you're looking to improve your wellness, the office wellbeing initiatives are just for you.
Not to mention, there's a travel season ticket policy to make your commute a breeze and a Climate perks travel policy for those green at heart.
And here's the cherry on top: This firm values its people so much that back in 2015, it transferred the total shareholding to an Employee Ownership Trust. This move was all about ensuring the firm remains committed to its ethos and runs in the best interests of its employees. So, when you join, you're not just another employee; you're part of a larger family that values and takes care of its own.
Initially the role is a 12 month fixed-term contract to cover maternity, however there is a strong chance it could become a permanent position at the end as the practice always tries to retain excellent people within the business.
