Lead AWS Architect

Are you an AWS specialist that would love to be one of the first to implement AWS cloud services into the Ministry of Defence.

For over 50 years this business has been servicing Defence solutions and the intelligence community, providing highly complex IT solutions to a critical industry to the UK and even during this difficult period is predicting further growth across the business and in particular the security division with not one furlough or redundancy announced.

The Ministry of Defence have recently announced they will allow Cloud Services to be provided to them. Off the back of this, the particular defence company I work with is creating a brand-new division and they want someone who is extremely familiar with AWS Cloud Native solutions but more importantly can have a strategic influence on this area moving forward.

The purpose of the role is to implement AWS (amongst over) and create a multi-cloud offering based on both private and public cloud solutions.
