They are the subject matter experts on the relevant standards and policies that are in place in order for organisations to be successful.

Due to an incumbent leaving after many years, they are looking for an influential and highly regarded Enterprise Architect to join their team on a permanent basis. In this position the successful person will be working with a portfolio of agencies in order to provide guidance and thought leadership to the architecture community that they support.

This is primarily an advisory role, but an ability to roll up your sleeves and work in the trenches when required is highly desired. This role will require someone who has built a stellar reputation for themselves as an Enterprise Architect, preferably within a government agency or a mixture of government and private sector experience.

    • Business and technology strategies
    • Current and future states of IT environments
    • Architectural standards and frameworks
    • Transformation plans and intentions

    • Current services and systems environments
    • Business capabilities and processes for agencies including cross agency processes
  • Work in a team to further develop an enterprise architecture that meets different business, technology and information architectural requirements
  • Further develop the current frameworks and available toolkits

This is a highly fulfilling role that will present a variety of challenges that will keep an agile mind keen on doing more. You will be working with an excellent team that is purely about collaboration and doing meaningful work that will benefit all of New Zealand. It is a rare opportunity that you will always be on the forefront of change and your opinions, observations and advise will be held in high regard with your customers.
