The current workload covers design work and contract management for our new build, refurbishment and maintenance programmes. If you are enthusiastic and interested in working in the public sector construction arena, we can offer a varied workload from feasibility to completion on a wide range of projects.

You will be a Registered Architect and a member of RIAS/RIBA. You would be expected to carry out contract administrator duties, so a sound knowledge of procurement, contract administration and project management is expected, as is an understanding of CDM Regulations. The successful applicant should be able to demonstrate a high level of design ability, having a clear understanding of construction detailing and a good working knowledge of the Scottish Building Regulations Technical Standards.

You will be computer literate and have experience and knowledge of Computer Aided Design and Microsoft Office packages.

The work will entail travel within Orkney so a full current driving license will be an advantage.
