Rutherford Cross Retained by Thomas Robinson Architects to Appoint a Head of Finance and Operations

Thomas Robinson Architects was founded in 1999 by the Directors Tom Robinson and Fiona Robinson. Over the last 20 years, the business has honed its architectural skills, and gained new ones, such as Passivhaus accreditation and conservation accreditation. Thomas Robinson have also learned the role of Executive Architect, but its core mission has always been to create sustainable, beautiful, and effective buildings which enhance the lives of their clients.

Thomas Robinson is an established award-winning Glasgow architect business working throughout Scotland. It specialises in creating exceptional buildings, from modern and traditional residences to building conservation projects, and innovative commercial developments. Its skill is in coupling imaginative exterior design with stylish functional interiors while combining light, open space, sustainable building design, texture and colour to outstanding effect. Whether the business is preserving a church or designing a large private house, it strives for sustainable building solutions within customers’ briefs and budgets.

Thomas Robinson Architects is performing very well, and the business is experiencing consistent growth. With exciting new projects in the pipeline, it has been decided now is the optimum time to recruit the newly created role of Head of Finance and Operations.

Reporting to one of the Founding Directors, this is a unique role where one of the key focuses will be managing the Project Finance and Project Operations processes for the business. These two key processes involve the assessment of how much time is spent on each project, the cost of the time, the cost of the time relative to the progress of the project and the cost of the time relative to what has been invoiced. This role will be responsible for planning and managing this whole process and taking corrective action (e.g., managing project delivery to meet turnover and profit targets).

The role will be based at Croftamie, which is around 16 miles from Glasgow and 23 miles from Stirling. The business anticipates this role being worked on a 4-day basis.
