Bringing your deep understanding of Business & Enterprise Architecture you will help drive customer strategy, usually within complex multi-vendor ecosystems.

  • Proactively engage with the other SNC business areas to foster collaboration, aiding business development and growth.
  • Develop a resource ‘toolbox’ to enable efficient reuse of artefacts across projects.
  • Constantly assess the latest technologies and techniques in the marketplace and provide thought leadership on potential practical applications to our client’s problems.
  • Contribute to the Digital Advisory Business Systems and Enterprise Architecture capability development and wider Digital Advisory initiatives.

What you can bring?

  • Key People interaction and Stakeholder management skills.
  • Ability to work individually as well as part of an integrated team both onsite and remotely.
  • Degree level qualification in Computing, Engineering, Science or Mathematics.
  • Have a passion for developing technically and professionally.
  • A collaborative team-player who operates to high behavioural standards and business ethics.
  • Able to demonstrate problem-solving ability in relation to complex problems.
  • Proactive in one’s approach to work and enjoy working with a variety of people as well as being comfortable with progressing work individually.
  • Have an awareness of commercial drivers, win work and follow on work implications.
  • Experience of information systems design and delivery, applying engineering rigour through Enterprise Architecture development methods and tools as appropriate.
  • An understanding of a range of architecture approaches, the factors involved in choosing the right approach and when and how they may be tailored.
  • Experience in the design of high-level structures to enable and guide the design and development of integrated services that meet current and future business needs.
  • Experience translating business visions, goals, objectives, and high-level requirements into Enterprise Architectures.
  • Architectural modelling skills using UML, BPMN, ArchiMate & Enterprise Architecture tooling such as Archi, Bizz Design Enterprise Studio, Sparx Enterprise Architect & MooD.
  • Assuring solution development, balancing business needs, policy & legislation with enterprise integration.
  • An appreciation of Agile development methodologies including SAFe, DSDM & SCRUM, DevOps & continuous methods.
  • A genuine desire to deliver ground-breaking solutions to key UK civil departments and organisations that have a noticeable positive impact on UK economy, Civil Progression, and real people.
