Portfolio Architect – Wellington


Are you a people leader interested in the following?


  • Improving outcomes for children, young people and families
  • Being part of Oranga Tamariki’s Technology and Channels group at an exciting time
  • Working with our technology vendor partners to execute and deliver technology services to our staff, enabling them to provide outcomes to children, young people and families.


About the team:


Our core business is to support children, young people and their families who are at significant risk of harm now and into the future. To achieve this, we form partnerships with children, families and whānau, iwi, NGOs, and other government agencies and work with our partners to help children thrive.


Technology and Channels is responsible for the Ministry’s technology strategy, systems and services.  It is an exciting time for the group as we are currently implementing a new operating model so that we can deliver our responsibilities more efficiently.


Our operating model is founded on three main principles:


  • User-centricity is paramount, with a focus on the front-line and the wider sector.
  • We will be cloud-first and asset-light, choosing to buy as-a-service offerings from third party suppliers, rather than own technology assets.
  • Our systems and processes will be agile and enabling, to deliver changes faster, reduce complexity and simplify system interactions.


About the role:


As part of our new operating model we will have four dedicated Service Portfolios. Each Service Portfolio will be responsible for a set of systems that is broadly aligned to agency business functions.
We are currently seeking Portfolio Architects for Corporate and Specialist Technology Services – focussed on HR, Finance systems and other Corporate solutions

The Portfolio Architect is responsible for developing and maintaining the architectural design for all systems within the Service Portfolio, ensuring alignment with the architecture frameworks.


Skills and experience:


You will be an experienced architect, leading architecture teams to deliver large scale, high cost, business‑critical programmes of ICT work. Your significant experience in working with technology vendors, ICT architecture as well as project management will see you advising and supporting the senior leaders of a large and complex organisation.


In addition to this you will have previous experience with the transition of new and modified systems in a production environment.

What we Offer:


We offer a dedicated and supportive team, flexible work options and the opportunity to apply your skills and experience to the wellbeing of tamariki.


How to apply:


Apply online with your CV and cover letter. If you are an Oranga Tamariki employee already, please apply through your myHR portal. If you have any questions about role, please contact Hr_Recruit@ot.govt.nz  #LI-ORG
