Alongside business development, you will be creating "know-how" and value delivery through business technology architecture excellence. 

  • Proven experience developing technology strategies, plans, roadmaps, architecture blueprints, solutions, and value-adding propositions, and taking these to market. 
  • 10+ years' experience (at least 5 as a consultant).
  • Ability to manage, strengthen and broaden key client relationships.
  • Excellent stakeholder and interpersonal management skills
  • An excellent understanding of technology trends, with the ability to apply these to real-world problems.
  • Proven experience to work successfully and collaboratively with senior stakeholder and end-users and strong customer relationship. 
  • Ability to develop younger talent, and build a high performing team. 
  • Excellent experience presenting technology and business value propositions.
