When you work with an expert coach, you get access to their guidance, knowledge and expertise, instead of spending valuable time figuring it out yourself. This saves you a lot of time, energy and money
Stephen has worked in the Architecture Industry and successfully recruited for the world’s leading architecture practices for 7 years. He knows what it takes for your company to stand out, make a positive impression and attract the most talented creatives in the industry.
Instead of reactively spending money on recruitment when an employee leaves or there is no applicants available when you need them, learn how command a presence in the architecture job market and inspire passive job-seekers to reach out with an application. Areas we can cover include the perception of your company brand, online presence, writing job applications people will actually apply for, optimising the recruitment process and methods to retaining staff from leaving including improving the office culture and wellbeing.
