Head of Architecture

Location:  The successful candidate will be expected to work a minimum of 2 to 3 days per week in our London office, however there is flexibility to work from other locations/homeworking on other days.

Salary: £61,083 (London) or £55,290 (National).

The Government are looking for an experienced architectural practitioner to advise the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on architectural policy and practice. A critical element of this role will be to establish the department as a centre of knowledge and advice on design matters to ensure that across government programmes the importance of design outcomes is recognised and implemented. In addition, you will champion the importance of good design outcomes to the construction industry, architectural practices, house builders and planning departments, to raise the design standards of new housing schemes, thereby influencing communities' attitudes to new development.

You will need to be an energetic leader and demonstrate credible expertise on design matters, able to work as a sole point of expertise but working collaboratively across the department and externally.

The post will report directly to the Chief Planner, but be primarily affiliated to the department's Design Team. As an independent expert in design matters the post will also work to the wider delivery and policy agenda of the department.
