  • Do you thrive on mentoring and coaching a team of hard working domain and solution architects?
  • Do you have an entrepreneurial and agile mindset?
  • Can you apply architecture methodologies and tools in a pragmatic manner?
  • Are you adaptive and flexible in your communication styles depending on your audience?

If you answered “YES” to all of those questions, this could be the opportunity for you.

The Technology team are looking for a brilliant Architecture Practice Lead to manage a team of architects.

What do you need to know about NZ Post?

The needs of our customers are ever-changing and happening faster every day - our team needs to be one step ahead of these changes and act quickly, knowing exactly how the network is performing and able to deliver for our customers.

We are growing our international and domestic parcels and logistics businesses by building partnerships and ensuring we're highly focused on what our customers want and need. New Zealand Post has been a vital link for New Zealanders for over 170 years, and in the future, we will continue to be a trusted Kiwi company that helps customers succeed and helps New Zealand grow.

Natasha Blazic is the Head of Architecture and who you will be reporting into if successful in this role. She explained why she chose NZ Post as a company to work with and what she loves about her job:

“Every day I get to work with like -minded people who are really keen to deliver successful outcomes not only for their customers, but for the New Zealand community. No two days are the same which keeps things exciting. Here, I have the chance to work with emerging technologies and develop top talent. There is a supportive collaborative culture here - I get to experience an authentic agile environment. It is brilliant to work with a company who is as passionate about finding the best people in the market as I am”

What will my role be as the Architecture Practice Lead?

You will have the responsibility of building relationships and working closely with key stakeholders in NZ Post -from business solution owners, Agile Practise Managers to the Leaders of Delivery, Transformation and Risk and Application and Support.

As mentioned previously, you will have at least seven direct reports. This means that you must have significant experience in mentoring and coaching architects who have high-volume workloads. You will also be accountable for aligning each of the architects to enterprise architecture roadmaps and technology strategies.

Strong expertise in architecture methodologies supported by architecture tools is necessary for success in this role.
