A NEW and very exciting Solutions Architect Contract has just arisen within a key start-up/NFP Client.
Probably the best Contract opportunity I've received so far in 2021, my Client is looking for a highly experienced & self-motivated Solutions Architect to go "on the journey" with them and help them build a new, fit for purpose customer/client solution & platform.

An initial 12 month contract with a high chance of extension, this role has the potential to grow into a Head of IT role downstream and my client is seeking candidates with the following knowledge & experience;

* Extensive Solutions Architecture knowledge & experience with deep & detailed knowledge across Software / Applications / Infrastructure and what new organisations will need to grow & expand
* A strong strategic vision coupled with first class, hands-on Solutions Architecture skills; creating a robust & secure Technology Architecture Blueprint
* An entrepreneurial "flair" with the drive & enthusiasm to help build a new organisation.
* Broad sector experience with detailed knowledge across a range of different solutions / systems / 3rd party providers (and supporting RFI/RFP processes etc). Any exposure to other Start-Ups / fast growing SME's will be HIGHLY ADVANTAGEOUS
* Excellent Stakeholder Management & Relationship Management skills - the successful candidate will need to work closely with the Management/Exec Team, the wider technology team as it grows and a range of 3rd party suppliers
* A strong work ethic, with positive, can-do attitude will be absolutely essential
