Job description


Solutions Architect

One Group. Five brands. Unlimited possibilities.

Five different automotive brands. Group Functions. Trade specialists.

Volkswagen Group UK is wholly owned by Volkswagen AG and is one of the most successful automotive manufacturers in the world, with some of the most iconic brands that the industry has ever seen. But we're also a great Sales & Marketing operation in our own right.

What really sets us apart is how we work – not how many vehicles we sell. VWG UK has a unique culture, built on diversity, difference and a friendly rivalry that inspires us all. Across our brands, we learn from each other, encourage each other and regularly challenge each other to think differently. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time.

There's nowhere in the business more fast-paced, challenging or varied than our IT department. We set the technology strategy for VWG UK whilst creating innovative solutions, maintaining applications and optimising security. We're experts in our business processes and systems and leaders of vast change programmes. Daily responsibilities involve managing our global network of over 100 IT suppliers, providing support for over 21,000 users and ensuring that 25,000+ systems, applications and technical assets run reliably, perform well and meet the needs of the business and its customers both today and in the future.

The digital future of VWG UK is changing; we're looking for a Solutions Architect to join our team on a permanent basis. In this busy and varied role, you'll be the technical lead on system development across a number of new and exciting IT initiatives. You'll propose and implement solutions across multiple platforms including networks, mobile devices and distributed platforms, ensuring they are fit for purpose and designed in line with our future business and architectural strategy.

You'll be an established Solutions Architect, knowing how to prioritise multiple critical projects at one time. As a natural problem solver, you'll ensure solutions are delivered on time with the right stakeholder buy in and support. As a technical expert you'll have experience of application architecture, data and business architectures and maybe even knowledge of SOAP/SQL, CRM, ESB, JAVA or ETL/DWH technologies. You'll work with a broad range of stakeholders, from Business Analysts, Business Relationship Managers to third party suppliers and our brands. You'll know how to communicate technical information to non-technical people and build great working relationships along the way.

So what can we offer you? We know people value different things, so along with a competitive salary, pension, car and discretionary bonus, we offer a wide range of flexible benefits to suit you and your lifestyle.

Sound like a challenge? We'd love to hear from you.
