Role Overview

We have a fantastic opportunity for a Solutions Architect, who will be accountable for creating the high-level strategic artefacts that convert the enterprise strategy into a workable solutions blueprint. Solutions include applications, technologies, processes and shared infrastructure services.

This individual will create deliverables that help develop the direction for managing the organisation’s portfolio of “to be” and “as is” solutions — including systems (meaning not just applications, but also processes and information), shared infrastructure services, and shared application services and components to better match targeted business outcomes.

In addition, the Solutions Architect will facilitate, orchestrate and leverage technology to enable the organisation’s future-state business capabilities that, in turn, drive the organisation’s targeted objectives.

  • Understanding of agile methods and processes, and capability of supporting agile project teams by providing advice and guidance on opportunities, impact and risks, taking account of technical and architectural debt
