About the Role: You will be expected to work across all stages of project development, from assessment and scoping to technical design, construction, handover, and evaluation.

You should be able to consider all aspects of building physics and materials selection to produce successful technical designs that perform well. Most of our architectural and retrofit projects are based in the North of England.

About URBED: URBED (Urbanism, Environment and Design) Ltd is an award-winning design and research consultancy based in Manchester. In the last decade we have developed a national reputation for our innovative work in whole house retrofit.

Our office is in central Manchester, but at the moment we are predominantly working from home, using a number of tools to aid collaboration as we work remotely. We are a fully mutual employee-owned cooperative and company limited by guarantee. Our employee members each have a £1 share and we make business decisions collectively. We operate a system of self-management with internal working groups covering Personnel, Finance, Marketing, IT, and Office Management duties. Following a successful probationary period, you would become a member of the cooperative and would be offered the opportunity to become a director.
