Architect / Architectural Assistant

Taunton / Barnstaple

We are looking for talented individuals to join our expanding team.

Candidates will have a part 2 or part 3 in Architecture and a particular interest in conservation.

Jonathan Rhind Architects specialise in historic buildings conservation and re-use, and new innovative, high quality projects, often for difficult or controversial sites throughout the South West. We have worked on many of the region’s finest ancient and interesting buildings.

Our current workload is an exciting mix of conservation and new build including country houses and estates, barn conversions, thatched and cob Devon farmhouses, church repair and a new church.

We have opportunities in Taunton, Somerset and at our main office at Shirwell, Barnstaple in north Devon.

We are mindful of the financial strains of architectural courses and offer competitive salaries as well as support for course fees.
