  • Outside IR35 - £550-£630 Per day

Our Central government client is one of the largest users of Azure in Europe. Due to their continuous improvement of their online offering across government departments and end-user environments, they are looking for an Azure-Certified Cloud Architect to provide high level designs on a number of Azure migrations from legacy web platforms.

You will be responsible for Investigating and documenting viable architectural options to migrate the Office of the current website(s) from Google's Cloud Platform, back to an Azure platform, ensuring the architecture and service is robust, resilient, secure and scalable.

You will be required to:

  • Produce a High Level Design detailing the various components of the service.
  • Deploy new architecture and undertake the relavent performance / load testing to ensure the solution is robust and scalable ahead of migration.
  • Take the service through the Departmental Security Assurance Model (DSAM) process and gain Authority To Operate (ATO)
  • Migrate the OCC website to the new architecture on the Azure Platform, ensuring absolute minimum downtime

This is an excellent opportunity for an architect with government digital (GDS) experience to make a real difference to a highly visible department's web offering. You will be able to demonstrate similar, Azure-based migrations and also experience of working in the public sector.
