As a Solutions Architect you’ll be part of the Solutions Team and report to our Solutions Director, Phil.

The role often serves as a ‘bridge’ between teams, requiring a broad understanding of technology, user experience, business process and commercials.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our solutions and client relationships. As a Solutions Architect you’ll be central to both, helping others solve problems and making recommendations to deliver greater value and improve project outcomes.
