Working at Hayball

Social Culture

Hayball has grown considerably in recent years, but we continue to strive for an inclusive, connected and engaging workplace within each office and nationally. We want to ensure that individuals feel part of the team and encourage this by creating regular opportunities for everyone to connect in a social and professional exchange.

While events and activities differ across the Hayball studios, there are plenty of opportunities for you to connect with some of the friendliest colleagues you’ll ever have.

Just some of the things that keep us socially active throughout the year:

  • Monday morning tea
  • Annual Christmas Party
  • Friday team lunch
  • Big Cake Bake
  • Sleep at the G
  • Annual Family Day
  • Soup Kitchen Fundraiser
  • Craft Market
  • …and of course, the all-important Hayball archi-soccer team!

Professional Development

As part of an ongoing commitment to professional development, Hayball runs a range of initiatives to ensure everyone has an opportunity to develop their skills and stay up-to-date with the latest industry innovations.

Here’s what we’re currently running:

PMP Program: Graduates working towards registration are supported through the PMP “Practice Makes Perfect” program, which cultivates best practice for their career.

Connect Sessions: This is a fortnightly, informal information session that takes place over drinks and nibbles. With a range of internal and external presenters, these 1 hour presentations are great for connecting with your colleagues.

Design Matters: Recently revived and back by popular demand, Design Matters is a monthly forum that stimulates lively discussion and debate around an esoteric architectural hypothesis.

Architectural Film Night: Each month we inspire conversation and connection by screening a documentary focused film in which “architecture as a character is examined”.

Senior Project Leader Forum: Hayball is about sharing knowledge and ideas. Most often, this is spread across vastly different projects. Our Project Leaders come together on a monthly basis to exchange, touch base and share their insights with each other.

Red Book Talks: Each quarter, the firm gathers to enjoy anecdotal reviews of a pair of projects that are typologically related, one completed and one currently ‘on the boards’. Learned lessons are shared, outputs (good and bad) are reviewed and the accumulated knowledge of important projects is disseminated to the entire team.
