      • Project admin activities including liaising with project team, client and third parties i.e. structural engineers, surveyors, contractors and building control
      • Maintaining supplies of stationery and equipment, recording office expenditure

      • Experience of working in an architectural practice is desirable
      • Experience of working with Apple Mac operating systems is desirable
