Craddock Design Services / Craddock Architects - Nuneaton.

RJCA, or R J Craddock Associates are based in Nuneaton, I completed a work experience week with RJCA and then 6 months of Part 1 architectural assistant work back in 2005/2006. I started working for them again in 2016.

John Craddock was looking to retire, and welcomed me back to help transition to a new company. To aid in the change, they approached me to become the practise manager and help mitigate loss of business with changing hands while also upgrading systems and developing clients. Changing from JCD and RJCA to CDS and CA.

I oversaw the adoption of digital filing and a new framework within the Google suite of products, looking after our clients through the Drive suite and completing our office organisation through Google Sheets and Docs.

I also organised the client job lists for the new companies, while keeping the work flow smooth and generating revenue for the new owners while pushing for expansion to suit their overall goals.

Skills developed:

I continue to develop these business to this day with the new Managers and look to the future and all it can bring.
