About

Architecture staffing choices changed for the better in 1984. There was a time, not so long ago, in order to build their careers; most up-and-coming architects had to remain anchored to one desk, at one firm performing rote tasks. Only a very lucky few were given the opportunity to do actual design work.

Architecture firms were stuck in a hiring-and-firing cycle. They were rendering themselves rigid and inefficient in dealing with the natural ebb and flow of work.

Along came a young designer, who was convinced there had to be a better path. In 1984, he founded Consulting for Architects and changed the industry’s staffing game forever. He offered talented architects and design professionals a promising new option: 

Instead of making a long-term full-time commitment to “paying their dues” at a single employer, they could gather under the CFA banner and offer their services to a multitude of firms. As those firms began to reap the benefits of adopting CFA’s non-permanent hiring strategies, they began to offer more project-based opportunities.

architecture staffing agenciesThings snowballed from there: within less than a decade of pioneering the concepts of “flex hiring,” “full-time freelancing” and “project consulting,” CFA was firmly established as the industry’s most trusted, go-to source for architecture and design talent.

Other architecture staffing businesses jumped into the game, but none could match CFA’s innate expertise and experience within the profession.

Today, project consulting has become the norm. Contingent workers have been a growing segment of the labor force since the recovery began in 2010. They account for 26.2% of private-sector hiring.

CFA is a true “market-maker,” with thousands of successful project and permanent placements, and all thanks to its esteemed clients. Clients comprised of hundreds of working professionals and firms on both sides of the hiring equation.

PROJECT
PLACEMENT

Many professionals desire an alternative to traditional employment–especially if they feel pigeon-holed or want to fast-track their career.  Hiring an architect on a project basis, or working as a project consultant, is the intelligent solution.

PROJECT-TO-PERMANENT

As the demand for hiring an architect increases dramatically firms are hiring permanent employees in record numbers. Exercising caution much of this hiring is on a trial period basis.  At the same time, architects will choose to work on a trial basis before making a long-term commitment.
