Well, what a year! Things started out strongly, continued to get busier, and staying in that vein – finishing on a high. We are currently recruiting across most project sectors, both private and public sector and anticipate this will continue well into 2022
It’s been an intriguing 2021 and what’s next we ask?
We’ve had the pandemic, unrest in the streets, earthquakes…. Please, just don’t mention the plague or pestilence!!!
With that as a starting point, it seems remarkable that we have seen such a strong first 9 months of 2021!
The market has shown strong demand and created a clear shortage of available talent, with this being most pronounced between March and September.
It’s been a really interesting time seeing how the market has traveled through this 2021 lock-down and how studios and staff have coped with the transition to working remotely for such an extended period. Overall, the sentiment and activity has remained very positive during the outbreak of the Delta strain in Sydney and companies have remained confident about their workflow and hiring intentions…
So what’s happening elsewhere? Not something we maybe think as much about when in full lockdown and our focus might seem more locally driven. Our wonderful affiliate in the UK, Oliver Tidmarsh from JaK Consulting filled us in on happenings in his neck of the woods and had this to say about their local market..
Welcome to the overview of the Architectural and Interior Design job market that covers what we’ve seen over the last few months in Sydney for the start of 2021. This report will hopefully give some insight into what is happening in the NSW Architectural and Interior Design job markets from our vantage point of recruiting for a vast range of Architectural and Interior Design firms in Australia.
Post lock down action! – that’s the only way we can describe the “bounce” we have seen, starting tentatively in December, building through January, with momentum continuing into March strongly here at BT&P Melbourne.
Early this month we sent out a short survey to hundreds (actually possibly thousands) of our Clients and Candidates – a few questions on how the global Pandemic has affected individuals or businesses within the Architecture and Design community – all with the aim of gaining a comprehensive insight into your experiences and sharing the results in what we hope will be an informative and of course interesting read..
Industry guru Bruce Whetters give us detailed insights from the last couple of months in Melbourne and what the future holds for the rest if the year…
Jamie Keay provides Sydneysider insight into market conditions and ponders some interesting articles that may help shed light into actual activity levels and varying sentiments out there.
