Finlason Partnership is delighted to announce the opening up of an opportunity for the employment of a Part 1 Architectural Assistant. Every year we aim to offer a placement to an architectural student as part of their ongoing education, to employ them for their year in industry, providing them an in-depth and wide ranging experience of architectural practice. Past students have thoroughly enjoyed their time spent with us, with the RIBA North West being continually impressed with the experience displayed through our students PEDR records. Recent graduates have come from architectural schools in the North West and further afield. The opportunity is available in our office in Hale, Cheshire, in the south of Manchester, easily accessible from Manchester and its surrounding areas.
As a practice, we take the education of our students very seriously providing them with opportunities to experience and take part in all stages of the design and delivery process. You will be treated as a key part of the team here at FPL and will be involved in different roles on numerous projects. As an employee you will experience projects in all sectors and at all stages of the RIBA Outline of Work Stages. Mentorship will be carried out by a highly qualified and experienced Architect and Director. Your experience will include training on our CAD systems, which include Microstation, SketchUp and AutoCAD, as well as having the chance to visit sites.
A reference from one of our recent students, Alex Martin (currently finishing his Part 2 studies at the Manchester School of Architecture) can be seen below;
“My experience at FPL has been the best opportunity I could have possibly been given at this stage of my career. The team at FPL invested heavily in my education and learning, taking time everyday to teach me the skills of an architect. They are friendly, approachable and understandable, and their ability to transfer their vast knowledge has allowed me to take massive steps towards qualifying as an architect. I would recommend this opportunity to anyone wanting to further their learning and get a well rounded experience. The RIBA North West were hugely impressed with my PEDR records, and with my experience at FPL. I had the opportunity to follow projects from the very first client brief meeting right through to issuing the Practical Completion Certificates. If you want the most rounded experience of the role of an architect, working for FPL is an opportunity not to be missed.”
