Re: Re: Job opportunity?..
Dublin 5 Malahide Road.
Sole practitioner architect offers unpaid work experience to architecture student or graduate. Would suit person wishing to gain first professional experience with a view to building a portfolio of work and experience to enable them to secure paid employment in the future.
The ideal candidate would be a Part 1, or Part 2 Student or graduate in architecture. RIAI member- owned practice, experience would be suitable for Part 3 purposes. Practice based in small office to rear of architect’s home. Very pleasant work environment; could provide mobile phone, lunches, and pay some expenses.
This is a new practice started in 2008 and currently has the following projects: domestic house extensions at design stage, residential development of bespoke houses at pre planning stage, feasibility studies of development land, ad-hoc services for a property management company which include small works and maintenance.
In addition, as a new practice, work would include setting up the technical library, sourcing a samples library, marketing and preparing website content. Architectural competitions will also be entered when resources allow.
Basic knowledge of Auto Cad, photo-shop, Google Sketchup, MS Office Etc. would be preferred, and excellent computer literacy is essential. The office has been set up according to sound management principles, and uses the RIAI Good Practice Guide as a quality management system.
Due to current circumstances in the economy, fees are very low at the moment, and a paid position cannot be offered at this time, however, the projects in the office present a good opportunity for exposure to design in practice and the Planning process; the fact that the practice is still in the early stages of its development mean that this could provide an excellent grounding in professional practice for a person in need of professional experience, as they will see many of the office systems being established and gain exposure to all aspects of the business.
This position would be ideal for an architecture student or graduate based in North Dublin, and hours can be made to accommodate other work, educational or other commitments. I hope to hear from an enthusiastic young architect that I can work with to our mutual professional advantage.
Found this on gumtree at http://www.gumtree.ie/dublin/13/41414913.html
Just wondering, would any part 1 or part 2 architects consider taking this?
Don’t know about the rest of you lads & girls, but “unpaid labour” somehow spanks of modern day slavery in my books…
