Senior Technician/Technologist - Key Technical Appointment
Tonic are partnering with a fantastic practice in central Leeds to hire a key technical appointment which could suit an experienced senior technician or an associate director / team leader looking to get more hands on.
The practice was formed around a decade ago by experienced directors who wanted to get more hands on with their architecture within a fun and friendly environment. They are now well established having grown organically to around 15 staff and have plenty of work in the pipeline including 4 major projects.
Mainly securing work through word of mouth, there has been an extremely diverse range of projects from schools and theatres through to low rise residential, innovation centres and large mixed-use schemes. The incoming technician will initially lead a flagship leisure hub scheme from stage 4 onwards comprising of hotel and retail space.
This is very much a hands-on senior level role running large and complex projects, taking ownership for managing clients and consultants, and leading internal project teams. Most of the projects are BIM level 2.
Having met with the director in the office yesterday, I believe what really makes this opportunity stand out is the people and the environment. Operating from a lovely open plan office, the down to earth directors sit amongst the whole team, are hands on with project running and involve everyone in important decision making such as project fees. Everyone is hard working and professional, however personal life is valued as most important and working hours are very flexible. There is a diverse range of people with varying interests creating a great atmosphere and there are regular social events.
