Retail Architects – The retail sector is growing strongly, which is creating high demand for Architects who have experience overseeing the design and delivery of individual shops or centres.
Statutory Planners – Given the increased number of development application approvals, Statutory Planners who are immediately available and can work on a contract basis are in strong demand.
Interior Designers – Candidates with solid experience on commercial projects are sought to work on new fitouts and refurbishments. However there is a shortage of suitable candidates in these areas.
Revit/BIM – Despite the increasing number of BIM projects there is a lack of local expertise on how to use Revit and Building Information Modelling software. Revit Drafters are in high demand, especially those with commercial and multi-residential project experience.
Multi-residential Architects – We are also seeing a need for Architects with large multi-residential experience as this is a project hotspot at present, especially in Sydney.
In Western Australia we have seen an increase in permanent positions becoming available which shows there is more certainty in the market than there was six months ago. This is due to large projects being awarded in Perth.
We’re seeing more job opportunities across the architecture market. After a challenging couple of years, skilled professionals are now seeing vacancy activity, particularly in the markets of Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
