Matthew Burnell, Head of Graphics
I came to Corstorphine & Wright straight from my studies at University. Since starting here my progression in quality of work as well as having confidence in my own abilities has developed beyond what I could’ve hoped to achieve in such a short space of time. Each day I come to work surrounded by many talented individuals and knowing that I have the continued support of them all, as well as the company to develop new and existing skills.

Corstorphine and Wright is a dynamic, progressive practice whos success revolves around investment in fantastically talented staff and technology to drive exceptional architecture. As practice we nurture staff to become the best they possibly can with endless opportunity.
Simon Crosby, Director
Working as Office Assistant at Corstorphine + Wright has allowed me to grow my job role exponentially in a variety of directions. I am fortunate enough to be in a position to work closely with multiple departments, from the Practice Manager and Directors through to the Finance team and the architects themselves. Having been here for nearly nine months I have undertaken vast growth in my role, taking on the company’s charity fundraising and PA duties with no knowing in which direction it will move next! Within a great company atmosphere where staff are encouraged to visit other offices and socialize, there is a professional and motivating ethos promoted throughout Corstorphine + Wright.
