Your future duties and responsibilities

As a Solution Architect you will be joining an existing architecture team of 6 and will work across projects with existing clients as well as responding to RFPs with potential new clients. You will be required to define, validate, and promote the appropriate strategies and/or tactical solutions to deliver business benefits whilst minimising effort and risks for opportunities, bids, and projects, both internally and externally. You will be required to develop and assist with the strategy and architecture of IT-enabled business change, working closely with multiple client stakeholders.
