The culture at Stockwool is one of the things that makes our Practice unique. We have worked hard to create an environment where every member of our team is treated as an individual and where sharing knowledge and working collaboratively is not just encouraged, it’s the norm.

Where will I work?
Our team all work under one roof – in a converted Victorian pump house in Aldgate, east London. The Pump House is a melting pot of creativity and teamwork, where 70 talented individuals are constantly learning from each other and always striving to do things better.

Will you help me develop professionally?
Yes, you’ll be joining a supportive environment that aims to bring out the best in everyone who works here. Not only will you be able to extend your skills and advance your career with us through our comprehensive staff development programme, you’ll also get the chance to go on our  international study tours to destinations of architectural interest.

What about the social life?
As well as regular social and charitable activities, our whole team comes together at the end of every month for Practice Meetings. These are a combination of professional and social – an opportunity for us to bring everyone up to speed with what’s been going on around the Practice over a few drinks.

What kind of people are you looking for?
We want people who believe in their abilities and buy into our ethos; teamplayers who understand what it means to work truly collaboratively, who have great communication skills and who are able to think for themselves.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you – please see the opportunities listed below.

We are always on the lookout for talented people who share our values. Speculative applications can be sent to careers@stockwool.co.uk. We are an equal opportunities employer.
