Studio Life

Our studio is based in the centre of Manchester. We’re within strolling distance of great arts and cultural venues; an amazing food, bar and club scene and sporting venues that are world famous.

Manchester is in the centre of everything the north west has to offer; historic mill towns, stately homes, beautiful villages and some of the UK’s most stunning landscapes, including the Peak District and Lake District National Parks.

Our studio

Our base is in a Grade II listed Victorian cotton merchants building.
It combines the grand character of a past age with the modern facilities of 21st Century working. The building has its own cafe with informal breakout work spaces on the ground floor, a Bannatynes gym in the basement, on-site shower facilities and secure bike storage.

It’s a spacious, light, plant filled office with views over the city centre and our pet friendly policy means there’s often a dog or two running around.

Within the office, tea, coffee, soft drinks and fresh fruit are free and there’s a kitchen area for the team to prepare snacks and lunches.

We organise a full social calendar for the team. This includes our summer team building away day, Christmas lunch and party, charity fundraising and a range of other events throughout the year (as well as regular Friday afternoon wine).

Continuous Professional Development

We actively encourage and support our graduates through the Pathway to Chartership. Our graduates host regular study group sessions in our studio, and our team includes a number of Mentors, Supervisors and Examiners, who all provide support to our candidates.

CPD is a key part of life at Randall Thorp with mentoring and training opportunities for employees of all levels, whether its getting to grips with new graphics software, or management and leadership training.

Regular seminars are delivered by members of our team and external industry specialists, covering everything from specific technical products, to masterplanning Disneyland, natural play design and the inspiring landscapes of South America.
