Our client is looking for a Solutions Architect with experience of NHS healthcare systems and/or clinical systems integration to design, integrate, implement and support the deployment of complex and large-scale products, platforms and solutions into the NHS at local, regional and national levels.

Ideally the Solutions Architect or Technical Architect will have worked with the NHS and/or large healthcare organisations and have experience of creating technical solutions and engaging with suppliers and senior stakeholders.

  • Defining technical solutions including integration to new and legacy systems
  • Experience of system to system integration and interoperability in the NHS
