Our View on the Architecture job market

Posted March 11, 2024

Our Permanent Recruitment Team Lead for the North and Midlands Holly Robinson offers her insights into the state of the market for architecture careers.

“Last year was relatively quiet in the architecture careers space, with around 10% of Architects switching employers. Having seen the usual seasonal slowdown towards the end of Q4, hiring demand for all architects is increasing.

We predict a standard mix of both permanent and contract hiring over 2024. While permanent architects are preferred, especially for long-term programmes, contractors with specialist skill sets or specific domain knowledge will always be in demand.

As cloud computing becomes the norm, customers are always looking for candidates with solid experience with cloud platforms such as Azure, AWS and Google Cloud to a lesser degree. Artificial Intelligence is also high on the mind as a skill set that customers are looking to hire and one that candidates are looking to upskill in or learn in a new role.”
