We are looking for a special person to represent our international consultancy firm in a new office on the West Coast. Ideally you will have experience in assembling and delivering projects in an urban design agency or architecture practice. More importantly you will be highly organized, independent and resourceful when decisions are needed, able to spot opportunities, and naturally confident and collaborative.

We are an established, award-winning, multi-disciplinary consultancy that designs the interactions between people and the built environment. We offer a career in an important and immersive field at the intersection of design and planning with clients that represent household names around the world.

This role will represent Applied in the US, manage projects, and develop relationships with existing and new clients. You will be a key part of a global but integrated team as we expand our existing projects on the West Coast and across the US and Canada.

About the role

As our US Project Manager you will represent Applied and manage several projects at the same time. You will be part of a small international team of account managers but also expected to work independently with existing and prospective clients. The position is typically responsible for managing work plans, coordinating team resources, administering budgets, negotiating contracts, facilitating meetings, and pursuing new business opportunities. As a key representative in the US, you will also be involved in our strategic business planning, establishing our US office and involved with potential new hires.

We will be joining our growing office in the Bay Area. We also operate flexible working arrangements and support home working. This role requires an ability to travel to clients across the US and internationally.

  • We are a firm that is fully committed to advancing people and society and looking after the planet. Applied is currently working towards B-Corp certification. We are looking for people who share our perspective and have an active interest in the creative industries including architecture, urban design, digital and graphic design.
  • Clear, concise and accurate report writing, an ability to prepare financial project plans, and confident interpersonal and meeting management skills.
  • Record of achievement in building professional relationships, project management and negotiation.
  • An advanced ability in industry standard text, messaging and spreadsheet software. The company uses Google Suite, Slack and Adobe Creative Suite. Experience with project management software such as MS Project or Merlin would also be an advantage.
