Practice Lead/Expert Partner - Cloud Strategy


Practice Lead (Cloud and Infrastructure)
IT Strategy Consulting
UK (Hybrid)

Backed by the incredible insight of Gartner Research, Gartner Consulting helps the world’s leading organisations to stay ahead of the digital curve.

The consulting business delivers value by helping Gartner’s clients execute on their strategic priorities, with independent and bespoke advice around topics such as: Growth (where to play/how to win); Optimization (Improve Efficiency & Effectiveness); and Transformation (driving change).

Our projects are delivered with the support of specific, non-industry aligned Practice expertise, which includes:

  • Application, Infrastructure & Security Modernization (including: Enterprise Architecture; Cloud & Technology Modernization (AWS, Azure, GCP); CyberSecurity & Resilience; DevSecOps; Program Assurance)

The business is experiencing unparalleled growth and we are looking to build on this by expanding our capabilities at a senior level. We’re currently looking to find a Practice Leader (Expert Partner) who can help support and drive the activity in a couple of these areas, especially across our Infrastructure / Cloud capabilities (Private Cloud/Public Cloud/Hybrid Cloud/Journey to the Cloud strategies).

This is a leadership role: directly supporting our biggest clients; providing the thought leadership into new, repeatable IP; and managing/growing a small team of experts.

We seek candidates with the following skills:

  • Experience managing relationships with C-Suite (e.g. CEOs, CDOs, CTOs, CIOs)

  • Extensive experience of Infrastructure, Cloud and Application Modernization (Journey to the Cloud/Private Cloud/Public Cloud/Hybrid Cloud considerations) and portfolio related optimizations and efficiencies, ideally gained some of this experience within a Management Consulting firm

  • Substantial hands-on experience with enterprise infrastructure and cloud, development of solution architectures, development and innovation

  • Strong communication skills, executive presence and strategic thinking skills, prioritization, and problem-solving ability

  • Demonstrated ability to identify market opportunities, drive business development and create re-usable IP

  • Experience with software engineering practices, automation, and design, and cloud native architectures

  • Mentoring skills to nurture future client developers and delivery consultants

In return you will be leading a growing world-class team of experts, helping to develop a practice within a growing organisation with huge career growth opportunities.
