From cutting-edge projects to essential programmes, our work has a wide reach. When you start your CGI story, not only will you be improving people’s lives, you can be sure we’ll do the same for you.

Their duties include data analysis and synthesis, data governance, data modelling, technology section and strategic thinking. Our architects work with a wide range of business challenges and technologies, and therefore their skills as a data modeller and turning business problems and objectives into data architectures are essential.
Data is central to all our engagements, whether working as part of a wider architecture team on a large engagement or working with the latest analytics and decisioning technology to develop business insights. With such a wide range of engagements and use cases, the role, and skills, of our data architects vary. However all have excellent data modelling skills and excellent communication skills – listening to and interpreting the needs of stakeholders, facilitating discussions and presenting information in the most relevant manner to the stakeholder.
As an Architect within CGI you will be part of an extensive community of practitioners, sharing knowledge and insight with each other and applying the principles behind our risk and cost driven architecture approach that ensures our clients achieve their goals through successful engagements.
A CGI career will offer you a complete tech experience, where you have control over your future.
You’ll also discover:
● A unique level of variety across different clients and industry sectors
● Interesting and challenging projects to stretch your skills
● Training and support specifically tailored to give you the right skills for your career/role – including accreditation
● Impactful work that makes a real difference in our communities
● A supportive tech community across CGI, with regular meet-ups, discussions, and shared best practice

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

● Relevant experience as a data architect.
● Extensive data modelling experience at domain/conceptual, logical and physical levels.
● Knowledge of a range of data management, analytics and decisioning solutions.
● Experience in working with Stakeholders and others to shape and communicate the data requirements and data architecture
● Experience of Cloud based solutions is desirable

Our working approach is built around our client’s needs and the needs of you, our members. In a post-pandemic world, we want to extend the offer of an open discussion to you as to whether a role can be office or remote based, flexible or hybrid and full-time, part-time or job share. Unconditionally inclusive. We know diversity brings a greater variety of ideas, perspectives and experiences to the workplace. We actively encourage diversity at CGI and inclusivity is one of our top priorities. #LI-Remote
