Join our Green Investment Group as a highly motivated Chief Systems / Solutions Architect (CSA) within our e-mobility business to help the Group support the transition to a low carbon, sustainable global economy.

This is a London-based role, but with the option to be based in another location with frequent travel to London. Initially, you will work in the Energy Technology team supporting the Senior Vice President / CEO in the development of the e-mobility business. Ultimately, it is envisaged that this role will transfer in to a dedicated EV platform business at which point, as Chief Systems / Solutions Architect, you will be responsible for establishing and leading high performing teams tasked with delivering electric vehicle (EV) charging and energy management products, services and digital technologies, for both public and private sector B2B clients, across Europe.

Reporting to the Senior Vice President / CEO, you will ultimately be responsible for the technology and services road-map and digital development programme for the e-mobility business (EV platform company) across Europe. You will be a key member of the senior leadership team tasked with building long-term strategies and teams capable of delivering across core functions such as global systems architecture and digital platform development, data analytics, asset optimisation, partnerships, customer journey and user experience.

In your role as the CSA, you will interface with wider internal teams, clients, partners, suppliers and consultancies and will be expected to be an ambassador for the business during any external engagement. You will be responsible for the contractual sign-off for various technology and services development projects and initiatives, the on-going management and enhancement of digital services and for providing guidance and leadership to direct reports and colleagues more widely. You will take a data led approach to defining KPIs and measuring performance of your teams and business activities and communicate this through regular, high-quality reporting. You will develop a vision for the proprietary digital platform architecture and put in place the in-house team and external partnerships to deliver and manage the platform across multiple sectors and international markets. You will take a hands-on approach to managing and leading the technology and services road-map ensuring the business remains at the cutting-edge and a leader in the field. As the CSA, you will be highly motivated to innovate and explore new value pools by constantly considering new approaches, technologies, services and partnerships.

For success in this role, you will have significant experience of building and leading successful technical and commercial teams and businesses. You will have a strong track record of identifying and developing innovative technologies, business models and services and working collaboratively to secure multi-million pound contracts from both the private and public sector, through direct contracts and competitive tenders. You will be capable of setting and executing a clear technology and digital services strategy for the business and working in a fast-paced environment. You will have experience of bringing digital services and solutions to market, ideally in the energy management and electric vehicle charging fields, and taking an iterative approach to innovation. The successful candidate is expected to have significant experience in e-mobility fleets, digital platform development, infrastructure and services sectors whilst experience of other digital sectors would also be beneficial. International experience of delivering solutions to B2B public and private sector clients across multiple countries / regions is also welcome.

Ideally, you will have experience of working in European markets and associated language skills are highly regarded.

Transfer within EV Business

We anticipate that in 2022 your employment may transfer to the company which is being incorporated to house GIG's European EV Platform, along with other employees of the Employer who are assigned to that business. The Employer will provide information to you regarding the terms of that transfer in due course.
