Your next role...

Our client's aim is to have an IT function that can help shape the business, be both responsive and agile and can deliver modern day solutions that enhance overall business performance and outcomes. As a Technical Solution Architect, your role will be to help lead the design of their ambitious solutions and technology landscape. With 'innovation' and 'simplification' at the core of their IT strategy, they have embarked on an ambitious journey to drive continuous improvement through technology and have already migrated a significant number of applications and services to the cloud - Amazon Web Services (AWS).

You will provide the necessary leadership, facilitation, analysis and design tasks related to the development of technical artefacts and end point solutions that are aligned to architectural standards and support the delivery of Affinity Water Technology programme portfolio. It is expected that the majority your time will be project based (from inception to closure) and require close working with the business and across all domains of IT, such as PMO, Applications, Service Management and Development. This will involve leading the development of high-level and low-level solution designs across hardware and software.

Got what it takes to succeed?

Here at Affinity Water, we attract and nurture the top talent. It's the pride we take in our delivery and performance. If you want to join the best, you will need to demonstrate your extensive experience as a Technical or Solutions Architect. You will be capable of providing technical stewardship and driving successful initiatives to achieve desired goals. You will be comfortable in owning the design process end to end and therefore have excellent communication skills and a natural disposition towards partnering across all areas of the business.

You will be able to take a pragmatic, risk-based approach to IT solution design, while considering the financial impacts. While not essential, it would be advantageous if you had a current Microsoft MCSE in one of the 4 areas (Productivity, Cloud, Mobility or Data), AWS Certification or any current qualification in major infrastructure vendors (Amazon, Google, VMWare, F5, Citrix etc). ITILv3 qualifications above foundation level (any intermediates, ideally to Expert or Master) is also desirable.

As a progressive organisation, we are seeking to attract candidates who will relish the technical challenge and opportunity to develop their skills.
