As an Enterprise Architect you will have the opportunity to provide support to a wide range of high-profile UK public sector and defence organisations. Your help will enable them to get the maximum benefit from their technology investments, and in doing so play a key role in nationally critical projects which make a real difference to people's everyday lives.
With expertise in analysing and developing architectures across the Business, Data, Applications and Infrastructure domains, you will also have an understanding of the technologies and operational processes required to achieve this. You will provide high-value strategy, business analysis, technology and procurement consultancy to ensure any solution aligns with the business aspirations.
Working either individually or as part of a larger team, you will undertake a number of consultancy assignments that could include:
- Generate genuinely useful outcomes to help deliver the client's goals in major business transformation programmes
- Hands-on analysis, not just assurance, including working with clients, users and other team members to address issues before they become blockers
- Develop and review strategies and target architectures to support future delivery of ICT services to meet the client's business needs and in accordance with the Government's ICT and other strategies
- Provide close support and strategic input to delivery teams, including Agile software delivery
- Develop and review baseline and transition architectures to support the client's migration planning of ICT services within a business change programme
- Develop architecture views to describe all aspects of a client's organisation including its Business, Applications, Data and Infrastructure
- Provide EA leadership to a client to help mature the organisation's architecture governance and develop best practice
Applicants must possess:
Working predominantly within the UK Defence and Public Sectors, experience within those sectors is an advantage, preferably within the ICT context on enterprise solutions.

- Enterprise and Technical Architecture development and review using EA frameworks and methods e.g. TOGAF, MODAF
