Architects of
a revolution

Locri consultants are changing the face of recruitment for architects, ecologists, landscape architects and urban designers.

Pablo Lombardo

Associate Urban Design + Design Recruiter

After more than 10 years as a Landscape Architect with one of the UK’s leading Landscape Studio’s I have decided to change my career direction and use my experience in a different way. I will be managing Urban Design recruitment in the UK and also helping to further develop Locris’ presence in The Middle East.

I first qualified as an Architect in Madrid, and then studied at the Edinburgh College of Art for 2 years to gain my Masters in Landscape Architecture. My experience in the UK working as an Associate Landscape Architect in Edinburgh & London has afforded me the opportunity to work extensively with Urban Designers and Architects. I have a very strong ‘insider’ knowledge of these professions, having worked on projects both in the UK and Internationally, including the Middle East.

I believe it’s important to have the experience and the industry knowledge, but also to be able to give candidates the time and the guidance they deserve. It’s a slightly different approach to recruitment than most people are familiar with, and it’s a more successful one in the long-term, as the focus is absolutely on what’s best for client and candidate equally. It’s a big shift from practice, but I’ve found a niche in helping candidates find the right opportunities and it’s profoundly satisfying when you do.

Richard Hall

Associate Architecture and Design Recruiter

After eight years as an architect at Foster & Partners and lead architect at Wilkinson Eyre, I decided to go independent, using my experience in a different way to help aspiring architects and designers find the right roles in a competitive but rewarding field.

Everyone in the industry can find the perfect place and achieve more with the right guidance and connections. As a lead architect I learnt how to build successful teams, and I use that experience in helping candidates and clients in finding the right match—understanding the range of people, what they want, and where they’ll do their best work and be happy.

Zoe Green

Ecology & Arboricultural Recruitment Partner

Having spent years leading successful teams, first as an environmental consultant and later as a landscape architect, I discovered that the big reward for me is in seeing people find a fit that enables them to achieve their best.

I worked in every size of business from micro- to global practice as employee and consultant, so I have a pretty good idea of the demands of business and the challenges for career-minded people.

Good people are THE greatest asset of any company and the foundation of successful teams, but it’s vital to understand their career aspirations, the pace, direction, and trajectory that will match their potential.

At Locri, we are mindful and informed professionals. We share an interest in the success of client teams and of individual’s careers. We take time to listen, learn, and advise—using our experience to match abilities and aptitudes with culture and objectives—bringing individuals together to help sustain businesses and support career longevity.

Carl Madden-Thomas

Founder

I started Locri after working as a landscape architect. When you’re in the profession, it’s quite common to see that just as people face a challenge trying to make a career, firms struggle to identify the talent to build their reputation.

Locri was conceived as a vehicle to solve both problems by challenging conventional recruitment practice, which often seems at odds with the interests of candidates and firms.

The Locri model is based on specialist independent consultants with in-depth professional experience operating as associates. Unlike the typical agency, they develop long-term relationships aimed at understanding and fulfilling client objectives and guiding and advising the careers of candidates—helping both to achieve their aims and potential.

For consultants the Locri model is a refreshing change. Instead of flogging away at a numbers game, it rewards investment in relationships. Everyone acts independently but does so within a collective support wrapper—there is extra incentive to help each other and leverage the skills and connections of the wider group.

Of course, there’s a lot more to it, and the web explains the details, but if you’d like to discuss any aspect, please message me and I’ll be only too happy to send more information and start a conversation. Current Jobs
