Mechanical engineer

Join our growing international architectural practice, (recently ranked as a World Architecture 100 firm). A career at Hyphen will give you the opportunity to work in a collaborative and supportive multicultural environment, where you can advance your career.

We encourage all our employees to work at the highest standards of professionalism whilst being self-reliant and showing independence of thought. In return, we will provide you with the experience and education to progress your career:

  • Most of our projects pass rapidly from concept to completion so you will experience a wide range of job phases, including valuable site experience.
  • Each of our local offices are relatively small so you will quickly feel part of a friendly, supportive team, and get to work closely with senior colleagues.
  • Our international network means you will be given the opportunity to collaborate with Hyphen’s offices across Europe and Latin America and work on interesting projects for world-leading clients.

In addition, our hybrid working approach means that you will be able to work from home for up to three days each week with the remaining time in our London, Winchester or Belfast office.
