Senior Solution Architect

Avon, England • £55,000 - £75,000 • Permanent • IT Architecture

Some companies have a very finite approach to success and define it merely by reaching arbitrary financial goals.

This has been the way big businesses have operated for decades….

It’s the way we’ve been taught in schools, colleges and universities

Maybe it’s time to think differently...

This innovation and transformation consultancy believe success as achieving extraordinary results that have a lasting impact on businesses, communities and individuals worldwide, and no-one is closer to the forefront of this than you the Solution Architect.

Bringing ingenuity to build a positive-human future in a technology-driven world. Diverse teams of experts combining innovative thinking with breakthrough-technologies to progress further, faster.

You will be joining the team in Bristol, partnering our clients in the South West and elsewhere.

You will get to work with CxO level clients and make a real difference to a broad range of leading FTSE 500 companies, defence and security clients, and public sector organisations. It is practical and hands-on; you will deliver, assure and advise, working shoulder to shoulder with our clients and their partners as the face of innovation and change.
