Workstream Launches Recruitment Services for Architectural Practices

Workstream Construction Services Ltd, Bicester: February 3, 2015 – Having introduced a new permanent recruitment division in Spring last year to serve the needs of its construction industry clients, Workstream is now offering services aimed specifically at the architectural sector. The company's new Architectural Practice desk is led by Bicester-based consultant Lewis Lawes, who recently joined from Amoria Bond in Manchester. Lewis is currently working with practices across London and the Home Counties and has already agreed terms with firms ranging in size from fewer than ten employees to 200-plus.

"The market is extremely busy right now," says Lewis, "and the practices with whom we're working are constantly on the lookout for new and exciting talent. With most having full order books for the next two years at least, we can only see it getting tougher for them to source that talent themselves.

"Happily, because of Workstream's track record in sourcing professionals in related areas such as CAD and engineering, we're very confident that we can generate enough candidates of the right calibre to meet demand."

Workstream's architectural recruitment services encompass all levels from junior technicians and assistants to senior project architects and design managers in private practice and the public sector.
