Interested in joining Yiangou Architects?
We’re looking for exceptional people...

As a member of our Architectural team, you will get the opportunity to work with other talented designers on some of the finest residential schemes in the country. Whether working on traditional or contemporary building designs, we are passionate about quality, detail and craftsmanship.

Our studio environment welcomes collaboration and healthy debate about work at all stages and, as we take a high proportion of our projects from initial sketch design all the way through to completion, you will have the opportunity to see your work realised.

Just ninety minutes from London, our offices are located in the centre of Cirencester, the historic capital of the Cotswolds. Many people choose to relocate to this vibrant market town or to the surrounding villages and countryside when they join us. Others opt to commute from around the region (Cheltenham, Gloucester, Oxford, Wiltshire, Bristol, Bath and Herefordshire).

Success is, of course, to be shared. We offer very competitive rates of pay and additional benefits including a generous profit-share scheme. There is a structured progression process which provides opportunities for long term advancement. Our stable team, with a third of our employees having worked for the Practice for more than ten years, is testament to the quality of life at Yiangou Architects.

We take the development of student talent very seriously, and look to get new recruits engaged and productive on projects as soon as they arrive. Many students come back several times during their education, working with us during holidays as well as during their placement years.

The Practice prides itself on its management style and professionalism, with a strong administrative team available to support the architectural staff. We have dedicated HR, Finance and IT resources within the office.

We maintain a non-discriminatory recruitment process and welcome applications from all eligible candidates.
