Finding the right place to work in Architecture is stressful when you’re the job seeker.
Recruiting the right creatives to join your team can be difficult and time-consuming when you’re the hiring manager.
It does not need to be this hard for employers and job seekers to connect and communicate.
Introducing the Architecture Social, an easier way for creatives to find their next job in Architecture and for companies to find the best people for their teams.
The Architecture Social is an online platform packed with content to help people find new jobs, stand out from the crowd and take their careers in Architecture to the next level.
Founded by a team who has studied Architecture, worked in the Industry as a professional, been the hiring manager at an Architecture Practice and also worked alongside companies as a trusted recruitment consultant.
Our platform has a fresh spin on an old formula by breaking down the traditional barriers between companies and creatives allowing them to communicate.
We do this by providing a supportive digital environment for professionals to develop their skills, find relevant jobs and socialise as well as helping companies promote their practice to attract the best talent and assist them in finding the right person.
Stephen is the founder of the Architecture Social, Head of Talent at Ackroyd Lowrie and Council Member of the Royal Institute of Architects.
He worked in the Architecture industry at EPR Architects for three years after completing a degree and diploma in Architecture at the University of Westminster and Manchester School of Architecture.
Since 2014, Stephen left practising Architecture to pursue a career in recruitment where he worked alongside industry-leading Architecture Practices such as AHMM, Allies and Morrison, Benoy, Corgan and Skidmore Owings and Merrill to find creative designers for their teams.
In 2021, Stephen joined Ackroyd Lowrie, an ambitious Architecture Practice as their Head of Talent where he is currently responsible for internal recruitment as well as retaining existing staff, alongside building up his own business known as the Architecture Social.
Currently, he is an elected member of the RIBA Council, part of the RIBA Future Architects Steering Group, an ambassador for the Architect’s Benevolent Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
