Julian established Sketch Recruitment in 2014 after devoting more than a decade to recruiting within the UK's Architecture and Design sector, assisting employers in filling positions across all levels of seniority and experience. His journey commenced with a deep fascination for the built environment, particularly architecture, during his studies in Environmental Management, and he has remained unwavering in his commitment to the field ever since.
During his free time, you will often find him participating in and watching various sports, cooking, spending quality moments with his family, and indulging in his varied (though occasionally embarrassing) music tastes.
Words from some of my clients:
James, CEO of an Architecture and Design Studio: We have used Sketch for many years now and Julian has never failed to deliver. He seems to always know exactly what we are looking for in a role and makes sure he only sends us people he knows we will like and will suit the role! Julian is also an exceptionally nice person, always happy to help, always at the end of the phone. Sketch is our go-to agency!
Lucy, Stephen and Ian - Co-Founders of Interior Design Studio: We have worked exclusively with Julian since we started our business almost 10 years ago. He totally understands the essence, culture and ethos of our business (not an easy task) and communicates this expertly to the outside world. As a result Julian has discovered some great designers for us to consider, and many are still with us after all this time. Julian was instrumental in helping us to quickly form a team in the early, busy days of BJB, and remains a very important part of our culture 10 years later. We look forward to working with Julian for the next decade and years to come.
Kizilay, Architectural Recruitment Manager at AJ100 practice: It's been my pleasure to have collaborated with Julian for the last 4 years. I have always found him to be very resourceful and most importantly, not unnecessarily pushy. He’s very professional and polite in his conduct and easy to talk with.
Andrew, Owner of an Architecture Practice: Julian at Sketch Recruitment has been a fantastic partner for us over the years, ensuring a considered approach to sending candidates that are carefully screened with relevant experience, ability and of the right personality, something which is often overlooked. We are grateful for his highly responsive and careful approach to recruitment.
Marie, Founder and Creative Director of an Interior Design Studio: It's been such a pleasure to work with Julian, founder of Sketch Recruitment. Julian is a visionary in the world of recruitment, connecting exceptional talent with opportunities that transform spaces.

James, Owner of Boutique Hotel Group: We came to Julian when looking for our first ever Interior Design hire. He got under the skin of our requirements, offered clear guidance, and really focused on finding a candidate that was the right fit to the task and our culture. Would thoroughly recommend.
Jeremy, Director/Owner at a Developer: Julian is the only recruiter who we have worked with that repeatedly gets us what we need. He sources only first class candidates who fit the role. It’s refreshing and a pleasure to receive such a personal and tailored service.
Shaham, Head of Studio for an International Architecture practice: We have a long-standing and a successful relationship with Julian @ Sketch Recruitment since the establishment of our London studio.
