Your career guide

The architectural profession is varied with opportunities in construction, property development and private practice. 

Private practices can vary enormously in size and you may find yourself working alone or as part of a large team. Many experienced, qualified architects opt to work freelance and as sole traders.

Since architects are actively involved from the outset of a project until completion, the recent increased demand for adaptable homes, home extensions and multi-functional open-plan spaces helps this sector to remain largely positive.

This guide provides you with all the information you need to build your career in architecture.
