About us

Solirius Consulting delivers technical consultancy and application delivery to our clients in order to solve real world problems and allow our clients to respond to an ever-changing technical landscape. We partner closely with our clients, embedding our consultants into their businesses in order to provide a bespoke service, allowing us to truly understand our clients’ needs.

It is this close collaboration with our clients that has enabled us to grow rapidly in recent years and will drive our ambitious future growth plans. We currently have over 250 consultants working with a variety of key clients from both the public and private sectors such as the Ministry of Justice, Department for Education, FCDOS, UEFA, International Olympic Committee and Mercedes Benz; with plans to increase our client base further in the near future.

We operate as a flat organisation and believe in trusting and supporting our team to operate independently. We pride ourselves on being specialists at what we do, making the most of our consultants’ expertise in their fields in order to provide a best-in-class service to our clients. All our consultants have the opportunity to work on a range of different projects, providing a broad range of knowledge on which to develop their careers and progress in the direction they choose.

The role

We are looking for an experienced lead architect with a successful track record of leading teams on complex multi-domain projects/programmes. This is an exciting opportunity for you to help us grow our technology consulting practice.


You will ensure delivery of various technical solutions for our clients and work closely on our projects overseeing multiple architecture domains, delivering on the technical governance,

roadmaps, and designs for new or enhanced solutions. The role will require strong problem-solving skills, leadership and senior stakeholder engagement drawing on experience from a strong technical background. You will be asked to engage with existing vendors and 3rd party management as well as providing technical assurance. Our clients work with a range of technologies from large web, microservice implementation programmes with a mix of COTS and bespoke developments for the public sector, to small software developments for start-ups.


As well as working with our clients, we would expect you to play an active role in building the technical capabilities of our organisation and helping us to diversify the technology services we offer.


Key Experience:

As an architect you should be equally comfortable working on detailed technical solutions as you are producing and delivering technical roadmaps to senior stakeholders. You should have passion and drive to design innovative solutions that are the right fit for our clients’ businesses.


You should be conscientious, client-focused, and able to work to tight deadlines, sometimes at short notice. You are reliable, self-motivated, and able to work without close supervision.


You will need to be technically proficient with impressive analytic and communication skills; comfortable with talking to clients at all levels and enjoy the variety of working on different projects. 


You will have worked in high pressure environments and been able to manage a range of stakeholder groups effectively. You are likely to be an experienced architect, with a strong track record of application delivery and possibly with a management consultancy or solution integrator background. 


Any experience of enterprise-level applications and their

integration with other systems would also be highly desirable.


Key Skills:

  • Excellent communication skills and a team player

  • Experience of operating at CxO level and managing 3rd Parties

  • Strong technical background (software engineering, cloud computing)

  • Experience of architecture Governance Practices using existing frameworks e.g., TOGAF

  • Consulting experience, ideally with large organisations

  • Knowledge of Data Architecture and understanding of database design and programming

  • Proven history of solution architecture delivery

  • Experience of Agile and Waterfall development methodologies

  • Scientific or technical degree, relevant professional qualification, or extensive professional experience


Package and Benefits:

  • Competitive salary, dependent on experience

  • Flexible working / Work from home
