Your new team

Our Technology Services group has a strategic remit to uplift the Fund's technology infrastructure and capability.

In this role, as an experienced solution architect, you will be the lead focal point within projects, supporting program/project managers, engineers and other delivery staff to execute on and guide projects throughout the delivery lifecycle, primarily in the Microsoft 365 space.

You will also support the Fund and the architecture practice by:

  • Assisting with maturing the fund's ability to leverage architectural reference models.
