9B and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

It was only in February we were discussing how optimistic everyone was feeling about workloads for 2020. The logjam of Brexit was finally being released and Architects with 3-5 years post part 3 and Revit were in particularly high demand. The speed of events over the last couple of weeks, however, has been absolutely terrifying and our thoughts go out to anyone affected by the disease. Thankfully from a business point of view, 9B has been set up for remote working since it’s inception and so operationally, there has been no impact. Our phone system, email, database and CRM are all cloud-based which makes us incredibly flexible and available via all the same contact details. The only thing that has changed is our ability to meet face to face but we hope we will be able to buy you a coffee at your local coffee shop very soon!

The impact on architectural practices and workload is changing from day to day but if you would like to keep up with what we are noticing in the marketplace, please see our blog which we will endeavour to update as regularly as possible during this crisis.


Although there appears to be very little light at the end of the tunnel, the world has a remarkable ability to recover and we are therefore conducting quite a bit of recruitment for firms discussing delayed start dates for the second half of the year. In the short term, there are still some firms with particular requirements recruiting and I imagine there will also be more contract roles coming up shortly. If you do find yourself out of work, do give us a call on +44 (0)20 8004 0369 and we will do our utmost to help. 


Although recruitment is probably the last thing on your mind at the moment, in the long term the industry will recover and the Budget set aside large amounts of money for construction. We are starting to receive several high-quality CVs which only a month ago would have been snapped up. If you want to be prepared for when Coronavirus has been contained and life starts returning to normal, do let us know and we can help you to start engaging with potential employees. If you are also in the fortunate situation of still being busy and could do with additional contract support, we have some particularly strong candidates who are immediately available and able to work from home. We are set up for video interviews so whether this is just a short term fix or a permanent opportunity, do give us a call on +44 (0)20 8004 0369. 

And finally, do stay safe and we hope the future for you and your families starts to look a lot brighter very soon.
