Graduate secures job at top architecture practice

An Architectural Technology graduate has secured a job at leading North West architecture, surveying and town planning practice Cassidy + Ashton, after impressing during a university placement.

Ben Llewellin spent three years working alongside senior architects at Cassidy + Ashton’s Preston office whilst studying for his degree, and his work on projects such as school extensions and pub refurbishments impressed his bosses enough for them to offer him a full-time role at the company.

Ben commented: “The team here at Cassidy + Ashton have been so helpful during my studies, acting as experienced mentors for me. It’s exciting to know all the hard work during my time at UCLan has paid off and I can put what I learnt into practice, full-time.”

Cassidy + Ashton’s Director, Dave Cockrell worked closely with Ben during his placement and said: “We have known Ben for a number of years now, and we are very proud of his recent success.”
