News brief – October 2010

Via Architecture & Design 

A rebound in the architecture profession is helping drive the overall labor market recovery in Australia.  Commenting on the rise in the official labor force figures yesterday, Westpac chief economist Bill Evans attributed the growth to a rebound in professions in law and architecture.  “They’re quick to fire, but they’re quick to rehire as well,” says Evans.  Mr. Evans was forecasting the unemployment rate to bottom out at 4.8 per cent halfway through next year.

About the author

After working at various design practices on a full-time and freelance basis, and starting his own design firm, David McFadden saw that there was a gap to be filled in the industry. In 1984, he created an expansive hub for architects and hiring firms to sync up, complete projects, and mutually benefit. That hub was Consulting For Architects Inc., which enabled architects to find meaningful design work, while freeing hiring firms from tedious hiring-firing cycles. This departure from the traditional, more rigid style of employer-employee relations was just what the industry needed - flexibility and adaption to modern work circumstances. David has successfully advised his clients through the trials and tribulations of four recessions – the early 80’s, the early 90’s, the early 2000’s, and the Great Recession of 2007.
