You should be an experienced Associate or Senior Associate (Architect or Interior Designer) with specific expertise in healthcare, aged care, and associated projects.  You will have demonstrated experience in the design of contemporary healthcare facilities of all typologies and scales and extensive knowledge of the Australian health and building design requirements.

Your reputation and past involvement in planning and delivering exceptional projects in the Australian or global health sector will be instrumental in your ability to engage with clients while representing Hassell’s passion for design.

We are looking for someone with significant interior/architectural design experience, well-rounded in both design and delivery on Health Projects, and clinical planning, and ideally brings dRofus experience.
