In the interim, you will have access to a large off-shore resourcing team until you have built the full-blend of near shore capabilities.


Key responsibilities:

  • Lead consulting and pre-sales activities and collaborate closely with clients to analyze their needs, define secure architectures, and deploy solutions.
  • Conduct framing workshops with stakeholders to ensure alignment with business requirements.
  • Oversee the design of robust Microsoft architectures for Azure cloud security.
  • Building a sustainable pipeline of client opportunities by collaborating with internal teams, developing new channels for business and working within an established network.

  • Experience of leading and growing teams.
