A rewarding and fun place to work – with support to progress your career.
Our people make the practice what it is.
Corstorphine & Wright has a strong collaborative culture that makes it a fun place to work, with a focus on helping each other and giving you endless opportunities to progress and contribute.
You get to work on interesting projects and with talented colleagues. And, with our rapid growth, you’re encouraged to help shape how the practice develops.
From training and mentoring to wellbeing and CSR – you benefit from a culture that fosters collaboration, creativity and impact.
You get wellbeing support through our Mental Health First Aider and Employee Assistance programmes. We’re committed to environmental and social value – and are becoming a plastic-free practice.
There are also many opportunities to get involved in CSR. For example, team members volunteer for wildlife and green causes, raise money for the arts and coach youth sport. People have also donated hundreds of hours doing pro bono design work for charities.
Whatever your passion, you’ll find like-minded colleagues who encourage and inspire you.
“I have been at the practice for 10 years now and really value the quality and variety of projects that we get to work on.”
“We see it as very important to invest in and develop our staff to make sure that the practice is a happy, rewarding and professionally fulfilling place to be.”
“I have been working at Corstorphine & Wright for over 5 years as both a part-time student and full-time employee. I am extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity to not only work at a highly acclaimed architectural practice but to also work at a company that continues to drive and support my educational and professional progression.”
“The variety of project scale, sectors, and stages have given me the opportunity to expand my expertise within a friendly, supportive and sociable office environment.”
At Corstorphine & Wright, you have opportunities to progress your career, no matter your role or your experience when you start.
Just look at our senior team for proof – directors come from diverse backgrounds, not just traditional architecture.
We aim to be at the forefront of the industry when it comes to training, including through partnerships and university collaborations. For example, you get a variety of experiences across projects, sectors and innovations. We’re active with RIBA and CIAT mentoring and university tutoring. You get site, design and technical experience to prepare you for exams. And there’s part-time support to help everyone realise their ambitions.
There’s a natural energy in our studios – a sense that everyone enjoys working together to achieve individual and shared goals. You gain a sense of ownership but also have collective pride in successes.
You get to try new ideas, from sustainable design to innovative construction methods. You feel like you’re working at the cutting edge, but in a tangible way – because we design places people like to use.
We have a track record for getting things built. And that means you’ll find yourself standing inside a building you’ve worked on, seeing people use it the way you envisioned, knowing it will make a long-term impact.
