My client is an IT intensive business, and they operate a state-of-the-art, specialised business-critical systems, 24/7.

You will also contribute to the development of the IT strategy and collaborate with colleagues to contribute to strategic planning and business planning activities.


  • You will have a Bachelor's Degree in computer science, computer engineering, technology management or other relevant degree, with a minimum of 6 years professional experience in an IT architecture role with a holistic understanding of application, data and infrastructure technologies.
  • You will also enjoy keeping your existing technical skills up to date and developing new ones, so that you can make strong contributions to architecture decisions.
  • Most importantly, you will need to be able to work collaboratively with colleagues, customers and stakeholders to support the delivery of IT services.
  • You will need to have excellent organisational and interpersonal skills along with a demonstrated ability to work as part of a team, while also being able to define and guide your own work under minimal supervision.
