Job Description

The Information Management Division is looking for a Network Architect to join the team.

The Network Architect is responsible for designing and developing network architecture solutions to meet business needs for all Wide Area Networks, Local Area Networks, Data Centre networking, both physical and virtual networks; and ensuring these are secure, technically sound and aligned to the Ministry's overall architecture and standards.

This position is the senior technical expert within the Ministry for logical and physical networks, and the security for these networks.  As a leadership role for this domain, a focus on our core values and a collaborative approach is expected; high level of collaboration with the architecture team, project team members and Network Engineers is paramount. Therefore practicing our values and being able to achieve outcomes through others is meaningful and as important to this role as being technically expert.  The Network Architect will also assist tactically with the resolution of complex technical network operational problems.

As a member of the Architecture Team, working together to continuously improve our practice and environment is an important goal.  Working with others to document, test and evaluate  systems (including the existing network infrastructure) to ensure optimal performance and maximum uptime; and evaluating and critiquing externally developed designs to ensure the integrity of the subsequent solutions deployment into the Ministry's IT environment, so ability to build rapport and negotiation skills will serve you well.
