In support of Sage’s vision, the IT function has moved to a single global operating model. As a consequence, we have moved to a new IT management structure, aligned functionally, supported by regional and local representation. Our mission is to transform the way IT is delivered to customers and colleagues across the world with the emphasis on simplicity, mobility, and efficiency. Architecture and IT strategy will be core to enabling our colleagues to focus more on our customers and increasing revenue by providing unified global IT platforms, multi-channel customer engagement and a consistent customer experience across the globe. This role is responsible for the definition and design of solutions to support the global finance transformation and standardisation of Sage back-office systems. This responsibility includes but is not limited to; working closely with the business analysts and stakeholders to understand requirements and translate them into designs and IT deliverables, liaising with the delivery teams on technical detail, overseeing builds and ensuring alignment with architecture, and representing finance projects and related architectures on global governance boards. You will work alongside the broader architecture team and its domain specialists to ensure the design encompasses all non-functional requirements of the solution and ensure strategic fit with the Sage target architecture. On a day to day basis you will work closely with project teams and be the voice of architecture. You will work within the existing framework and according to architecture principles and ensure the project and architecture leadership teams are kept informed of progress through the standard reporting methods and forums.
