About you

A natural networker, communicator and collaborator, you have strong analytical and problem-solving skills, the ability to think laterally and translate complex technical scenarios into simple language artefacts for non-technical stakeholders. You have a customer-focused mindset, with the ability to understand and anticipate customer and business needs. You possess good time-management skills and the ability to learn new skills quickly.

You will have worked in the face of challenging deadlines and ambitious projects, syndicating requirements and existing solution parameters, synthesising these into plans for new patterns of architecture to established principles.  You will have simplified complex problems, and guided solutions with both technical and non-technical stakeholder groups.

The ideal candidate should have a strong passion for new technology in education and a desire to stay up to date with emerging trends, tools, architecture and related standards. They should be able to work under pressure and be adaptable in a fast-paced, changing environment.

This is a role within a technical team, so experience with technical business analysis, or in technical architecture in general, is an advantage.  You will have a background in software and/or service development, with systems integration experience.
