Enterprise Architect in their Commercial Team to work on Markets for a minimum of 6 months duration.
One of the UK's leading banks and who are now investing circa £3bn over the next 3 years to completely transform and optimise the application landscape. With architecture in the forefront of this transformation, we are looking for architecture leaders to provide thought leadership and help define and drive the new strategy for the bank.
They are at the start of a multi-year >£100m transformational programme and this role is the lead enterprise architect for this programme as well as the middle and Back Office functions.
This role is part of the Commercial Enterprise Architecture team facing off to the Markets business as well as to their delivery organisations. You will be joining senior team of dynamic strategy-oriented enterprise architects, focused on partnership and collaboration with stakeholders. The central team is small however this role will include the leadership of the federated solution architect's community.
Aligning with the business and group technology strategy, you will be accountable for defining the target architecture as well as the roadmaps to achieve it as well as ultimately accountable for all the architecture decisions for the area you support. There is an element of governance as part of this role, but this should be implemented through collaboration and partnership rather than policing.
In your role you will have an opportunity to engage with senior leaders (including CxO) from both the business and IT advising them on technology strategy and partnering with them to define the right solutions to meet the needs of their rapidly changing business. This needs to balance the needs of the current with the needs of the transformed future trying to minimise technical debt whilst enabling the business outcomes.
Given the transformation journey they about to embark on, there has never been a more exciting and impactful time to join the Enterprise Architecture team as they redefine the future of the bank.
