Stephen Drew

Architecture Social



Stephen is the Founder of the Architecture Social and an ambassador for the Architect's Benevolent Society, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a professional member of the Recruitment Employment Confederation and the Association Of Professional Staffing Companies. He is also a former elected Council Member of the RIBA, Group Member of RIBA's Future Architects and Education Group, Visiting Critic and Teaching Assistant of Manchester School of Architecture, professional mentor for Postgraduate Architecture students at the University of Westminster, and a guest lecturer for students of LMJU, MSA and Coventry University. Previously he worked in the Architecture industry at EPR Architects for three years after completing a degree and diploma in Architecture at the University of Westminster and Manchester School of Architecture. In 2014, Stephen left practising Architecture to pursue a career in recruitment, working alongside industry-leading Architecture Practices such as AHMM, Allies and Morrison, Benoy, Sheppard Robson and Skidmore Owings and Merrill to find creative designers for their teams. In 2021, Stephen joined Ackroyd Lowrie, an ambitious Architecture Practice, as their Head of Talent. He was responsible for internal recruitment and retaining existing staff, and building up his own business, the Architecture Social. The Architecture Social is an online platform packed with content, resources and tools to help creatives find new jobs, stand out from the crowd and take their career in Architecture to the next level. The combination of working directly in the Architecture and Recruitment industry means that the Architecture Social has a fresh spin on an old formula by breaking down traditional barriers between companies and creatives, providing a supportive environment to develop professional skills, find new jobs and socialise.
