You can expect to work on a diverse range of projects in the UK and overseas, spanning a variety of sectors, in a design studio environment.
We have worked on projects ranging from under £1m to over £500m. Although we work on some big projects, you'll find that ours is not a faceless, big-practice environment. You'll work with sector specialists and be sure that your career development is taken seriously. This comprises initial induction, ongoing training and CPD, and the opportunity to get involved in focus groups such as the sustainability working group.
We believe it's important to give something back to the communities in which we work. The practice engages in pro bono and not-for-profit projects around the world, in which all staff have the chance to participate. JMP is a partner of the Clinton Global Initiative, and many projects are in partnership with them, such as the Malawi Schools project, and the Indian Institute of Advanced Nursing. The practice has also been involved in a number of projects to reconstruct Haiti, following the devastating earthquake of January 2010.
Closer to home, the practice has also taken part in designing and constructing facilities for the Crisis Open Christmas campaign, and supported the individual fundraising efforts of its staff.
Training and Development
The practice takes seriously its commitment to furthering architectural education, and supports Part 1, 2 and 3 staff with mentoring programmes, study leave and examination fee assistance. Career progression at the practice is demonstrated by the fact that one of our directors started their career here as a Part 1. For non-architects, members of the marketing team have been supported with CIM courses, and in the accounts team with the CIMA qualification.
The practice works with a local training organisation to give placements to apprentices, who have taken their first steps in employment with JMP.
Since 2004, JMP has also funded the RIBA/ICE Bursary, which supports architectural and engineering students, graduates and newly-qualified architects and engineers committed to the progress of community and environmental issues in economically deprived areas in the UK or abroad.
Aside from architecture, there are many other roles at the practice. Human resources, finance, marketing, PR, modelmaking, visualisation, graphic design and administration are all handled in-house.
It’s not only our projects that are diverse – so is our team. At the last count, the practice employed speakers of 22 languages, so there’s a real international culture, a lively social scene and cultural trips abroad.
