Graduate Open Day Success!

Chapman Taylor recently held an open day in our Manchester studio for Part I, Part II and technologist students from the Manchester School of Architecture to provide an insight into our practice, projects and studio culture.

We presented a diverse range of projects from each of the different sectors in the practice, both in the UK and overseas. Attendees were also offered the opportunity to speak with our team and learn more about Chapman Taylor and upcoming graduate career opportunities with us.

“Entering the workplace for the first time can be intimidating, so we work with universities to offer a programme of support for students,” explains our Head of People & Culture, Kester Withams. “As a practice, we’re incredibly keen to ‘give back’ to educational institutions where, as young architects, we first learned the skills to develop our passion for design.”

Thank you to everyone who joined us at our Graduate Open Day. We had a great day chatting with students and sharing an insight into our practice, projects and culture.
