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
with stakeholders. The central team is small however this role will include the leadership of
the federated solution architects 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

minimise technical debt whilst enabling the business outcomes.

Given the transformation journey we are about to embark on, there has never been a more
exciting and impactful time to join the Enterprise Architecture team as we redefine the
future of the bank.
