This is the fifth recorded episode of The Broke Architect Podcast brought to you by the Global Architect Alliance (GAA).
In this episode I talk to Stephen Drew, founder of The Architecture Social a recruitment company life no other, based in the UK. Stephen was a Part II architectural until he pivoted into recruitment, which can be more financially rewarding.
We talk about Stephen’s struggles with debt, setting up a business but more importantly stories within the industry of pay and negotiation. Stephen has an inside perspective on the industry and we talk about how pay has fallen woefully behind inflation over the last 10 years. We also talk about the positive, how architects change society and have so many skills that can be applied to more profitable roles.
Stephen is also an ambassador for the Architects Benevolent Society and highlights why this Society is needed now more than ever.
Should you be facing issues such as those discussed in this episode a range of help is available. The Architects Benevolent Society founded in 1850 exists to support the architectural community and their families and can help you in a range of ways during your working life, or once you have retired..
