Our Evolution begins with YOU

Trainee Designer

Applications Close 12th March 2018

£17,576pa + market leading bonus + numerous other benefits

Do you have an interest in design and architecture and want to gain invaluable experience while gaining a recognised qualification?

Reiver Homes has an exciting opportunity for a Trainee Designer to join our fast-paced team.

Reiver Homes is the new name for house building in Cumbria and South West Scotland.  We pride ourselves on delivering ‘homes with a human touch’ and people are at the heart of everything we do. We are a small team of house building experts and with your input, together we will build our customers dream homes. The targets we have to meet are ambitious, but the rewards are impressive.

As a Trainee Architectural Designer you will create designs on AutoCAD for developments that are profitable, attractive and of high quality.

Based from our office in Carlisle, but with regular site visits, you will be mentored by our experienced Designers. You will learn about current house building legislation, to submit Planning, Building Regulations and other applications as necessary and will be liaising with the Planning Department and other consultation bodies.

We will develop your technical ability and help you become proficient in AutoCAD, and together with your creative flair you will be producing beautiful homes and developments.

If you have studied, or are studying your A Levels or equivalent, ideally in a Design Technology based subject (predicted grades C or above), have excellent communication skills with the ability to work quickly and accurately using your own initiative then you could be just who we’re looking for. A full driving license would be extremely advantageous.

Alongside full financial sponsorship to gain a recognised qualification, you will receive a starting salary of £17,576pa plus bonus and other benefits.

An assessment centre is being held on Sunday 25th March and selected candidates must be available to attend.

“Reiver Homes allows me to fully express my design flair, which in turn enables the company to deliver high quality housing delivered by a hard working team, that complement each other from start to finish throughout the process.”

– Simon McClelland, Senior Architectural Designer, Reiver Homes
