Be a Placemaker. Join us at KSA.

Whether you are an architect or an architectural technologist, we'd love to hear from you.

No matter which stage of your career you are at, if you can help make KSA an even better place, and help us to create better places for people to live and work, there’s an exciting opportunity waiting here for you.

It takes great people working in a great place to make great places for people to live.

Our Placemakers are individually gifted and diversely talented architectural professionals who share the ideal of creating places that contribute to a better quality of life for the people who live and work in them.

We are an equal opportunity employer.

Our studio in Portsmouth is a supportive and enjoyable environment, designed to enable all members of our team to do great work.

We help everyone who works with us to broaden their experience and understanding of ‘Placemaking’ and to progress their career in the profession.

Walking the ‘great place’ walk.

We really ‘walk the walk’ of creating a great place at KSA.

We aren’t simply colleagues. We are a true creative community. We see each other each month outside of work for a fun event like clay pigeon shooting, kayaking, wine tasting, archery, laser quest, go karting, ten pin bowling, board game cafe, or sometimes simply for dinner.

We have a volleyball team that plays against other local businesses, and we have professionally run Pilates sessions in the studio every fortnight - partly because it’s fun, but also to help protect the backs of people who sometimes spend a few too many hours devotedly seated in front of a screen.

People don’t just pay lip-service at KSA. The ‘Placemaker’ idea really does guide the way we think and work. It’s a responsibility as well as an approach.

I absolutely love it here. I feel encouraged and supported. There’s always the opportunity to speak up and stand out, but in every sense we are a real team. I know that what I do affects people’s lives.

Incredible opportunities. Great people. Great fun.
