Grant Bates


Master of Architecture graduate looking for architecture or design related work in New York City on J1 visa. Extensive work experience as Site Supervisor during university enrolment periods has equipped me to manage complex operations and deliver the highest levels of customer service in a dynamic and high pressure environment. Architectural experience includes full time employment at Andrew Burns Architect and several freelance drafting and graphics jobs.

High Distinction grades were maintained throughout my architecture degrees. The nature of architectural projects has allowed me to utilise and showcase my creativity, problem solving and organisational skills.

Travelling is a passion that I have indulged extensively in the past few years; experiencing the culture, built and natural environments of over 20 countries throughout Europe, South America and Asia. These trips have too highlighted organisational aptitude but also enhanced social skills; particularly in engaging with people from other countries.

I speak basic Spanish and my spare time is spent reading, drawing, playing guitar and surfing.

My availability is flexible. Please don’t hesitate contact me if you require any further information or would like to meet for an interview, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity.
