Why choose Linear Recruitment?
For the first four decades of the modern Olympics, did you know Architecture was considered an Olympic sport?  With a larger number of architecture recruitment agencies out there, competing, we understand we need to stand out from the rest and earn the top recognition. 

How do we do this?
It’s simple. We work with you.

Yes, we know our markets, with specialist and experienced recruiters leading each division. However, our focus is to ensure we fully understand your business, recruitment requirements and look to become your partner of choice. Our motive of doing more with less, encourages us to develop and establish strong working relationships with our clients, with an honest and dedicated approach.

Our Architecture and Design division is one of our most recent openings which has grown from strength to strength and we already partner with several successful businesses, with exclusive agreements in place on the back of our work.

We take great pride in all the clients we represent, whether that be a brand-new smaller business to a larger global multi-disciplinary firm. Through our network or headhunting, we are committed to finding the right talent for your business. 

We’ll save you time, advertisement costs, and stress and treat your recruitment with the importance it deserves, ensuring a positive experience. On top of that, Linear will also provide free advice on the best practices in recruitment and hiring processes in order to secure the right talent for your business.

Our Team

Elliot Birtwistle heads up the Architecture sector. Prior to joining Linear, Elliot worked in the North West, beginning his recruitment career in Estage Agency recruitment before moving into a 360 role, then white-collar construction recruitment, working with main contractors, housebuilders and fit-out contractors. Elliot then moved into Architecture recruitment and has never looked back. He joined Linear Recruitment and relocated to the North East in early 2022, and we've seen our Architecture Division go from strength to strength. Because of this growth, we welcomed Adam Hawisa to the team in July 2022 to work alongside Elliot.

Elliot's ambitions for the sector are high, with the goal to cover all aspects of Architecture & Design on a national basis. Career moves and hiring staff are both hugely important decisions and Elliot and Adam are hugely focused on this, aiming to achieve positive long term outcomes for both their candidates and clients.
