Do you have a passion for the value that your profession of Architecture can bring to an organisation providing unique services to New Zealanders? Can you translate business strategies into technology roadmaps? 

Can you translate project requirements into solution architectures? 

Can you design an approach to deliver pragmatic results to meet unique business needs? 

Does your curiosity and passion come through as engaging and effective communication no matter who the audience? 

If you can say Yes! to all the above then we can offer you a role that will foster your talents within a diverse team of Architects, and allow you to work with a range of business units involved in some incredibly interesting change. 

We have a well-established collaborative architecture practice, with seniors who have been there and done that in Architecture and know what good, well supported Project Architects can do for success. 

If you want to join a team of smart, committed people who do some fairly spectacular work for New Zealand then make sure you get in touch.
