Job Title: Architectural Technician

Location: Nottingham

Salary: Competitive + Package

Job Type: Full Time, Permanent

The Company is an established property development company within the heart of Nottingham which is looking to expand its in house architectural team.

The Role:

The role is for a technically minded individual who enjoys problem solving and detailing.
