Architects - Work Down Under

After 2 years of chaos and uncertainty caused by Covid, 2022 is the perfect time to take back control of your life and focus on what will make you happy.  Move to Australia.

Melbourne has consistently ranked as the world’s most liveable city, and has rarely ranked outside of the top 3 in over 20 years.  What makes it a great place to live?  It has a reputation as a creative and culturally diverse city, with a flourishing arts and fashion.  It is dominated by a thriving laneway and coffee culture that results in world class restaurants and bars.  It is known as the sporting capital of Australia, hosting international events like the Australian Open and F1 Grand Prix, along with the iconic Boxing Day Test and the tribal phenomenon that is AFL.

The city itself is expected to almost double in size in the next 30 years, from roughly 5 million people now to 9 million people by 2056.  There is significant infrastructure development with billions of major projects funded and underway in roads, rail, healthcare, education and community amenity in just the next 10 years alone.  From a development perspective – excellent design sells and poor design does not.  This means that the development scene is quite sophisticated and inner city development in particular leads the country in design outcomes.  All this, and you can still buy a house with a backyard and a pool within a 30 minute commute to the city.

We are working with one of Melbourne’s leading practices who is looking for talented UK trained and experienced Architects and Technicians to join their team on a permanent basis.

Metier3 have a vision that marries design excellence with commercially compelling solutions.  They are a values driven organisation that lives and breathes their values of:

  • Team Work;
  • Client Focus;
  • Respect;
  • Integrity;
  • Continuous Improvement; and
  • Fun.

They have been responsible for some of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings across the Commercial, Educational, Hotel and Retail sectors, and are regularly the recipient of major design awards.

They currently seek motivated, articulate and passionate staff to join their team on a permanent basis.  This practice has a proven track record of upskilling staff, and as such long term prospects exist to progress within the organisation.

There are a number of opportunities currently available ranging from Senior Architect level – particularly those that enjoy playing a role mentoring younger staff members, through to mid-level Architects who will play a team member role on projects.

To be successful you must possess:

  • Outstanding collaborative skills, with the desire to work in a team first environment
  • A commitment to provide outstanding service to clients;
  • Be passionate about creating architecture that excels;
  • The ability to talk about your design, and bring clients along for the ride; and
  • The desire to work with a group that will appreciate and reward your efforts.

The practice is a leading exponent of Revit and as such you would also need to have a high level of proficiency in its’ use.

This is a great opportunity to build a better life for yourself and your family, and to help to shape the face of Australia forever.
