Call for A-Team Project Delivery Consultant

We’re looking to expand our team with a vibrant technical individual who can design and implement intelligent infrastructure solutions for our clients.

Important things you need to know

What we do

We help our clients achieve confidence in their digital information by doing five things (quite well according to our clients):

  • Improve Consistency (through Corporate Governance)
  • Reduce Risk (through IT Security)
  • Increase Efficiency (through Advanced IT Infrastructure)
  • Empower Expertise (through the AVeS Training Academy)
  • Operate Intelligently (through Managed Services)

What we believe

We live by 4 core organisational values that are:

  1. When we say you are important, it means that we’re not your run-of-the-mill employer. We base relationships on teamwork, treat people with dignity and respect, don’t fixate on job titles, care about people’s personal growth and promote collaboration through a flat organisational structure. At AVeS, you are important.
  2. Know your role suggest competence, chyouch is one side of the coin (we’ll get to other side a bit later). You have a unique and complementary role to fulfil within the team, and that gives you the responsibility to live your potential. We believe that continuous learning breeds both inner confidence and actionable know-how, and make training part of our company culture.
  3. Within your role in our A-Team, you make a difference. Your role allows you to expand your responsibilities and have a measurable impact on the daily business processes and success. We like people who show initiative, take responsibility and consistently build up the team to be great.
  4. And lastly, the other side of the coin asks you to enjoy the journey. Attitude matters as it fuels motivation and happiness in the workplace. People within our team have a passion for what they do. We live in an exciting technology renaissance, and strive to make the most of it. We may not be Google, but we are continually inspired by them.
