Head of IT Architecture | Hertfordshire & London & Remote | circa £100,000 + car/allowance + 20% bonus

This is a fantastic opportunity to provide technical governance leadership to the C-Suite and build on an already talented team.

As the new Head of IT Architecture, you will lead the team directly looking after the architecture of our client partner’s extensive application estate, manage the design and architecture demand, ensuring that artefacts and design standards are delivered to time and to quality and work in conjunction with wider business stakeholders to deliver business value from our client-partner’s IT systems, whilst ensuring systems and data are secure.

Leaders who can oversee adherence to the architecture strategy, support long-term sustainable development and represent and actively participate in IT governance and Architecture communities will be of interest.

If you can research, create, communicate, and maintain IT product and supplier roadmaps considering market and IT developments that are designed to deliver long-term business requirements, we’d like to hear from you. If you can reduce IT risk and maximise re-use and efficiencies, as well as develop, agree, control, maintain and govern effective delivery of IT architectural solution blueprints (both internally and externally produced), incorporating IT operating model, technology, applications, information, and service, in accordance with agreed standards and criteria, we’d also like to hear from you.

If you have a background in Solution or Enterprise Architecture – it's likely you will have great skills in Application / Integration Architecture with an awareness of Infrastructure and Service and this could be the ideal role for you.

Experience of working with modern workplace technologies (Data Models, Azure, BI, COTS products) and/or any Architecture related qualifications such as Togaf, Archimate or Zachman would be helpful.

This role will also require strong communication, influencing and negotiation skills.

Working closely with the wider Architecture and technology community will be a huge part of your role, and actively discussing and presenting technical findings to senior stakeholders from numerous departments, whilst influencing the decision making and collaborative working within the team with the aim of improving architecture capability, promoting best practise, and delivering a technology strategy are all vital elements of this job role.

If partnering with stakeholders to elicit, lead and influence strategy discussions and work with the Digital Transformation team to translate the strategic roadmap into a project pipeline, whilst applying your knowledge of technology concepts and trends to identify interdependencies, gaps, potential threats, redundancy, and re-architecture opportunities appeals to you, then please apply today.

Any Head of IT Architecture who can analyse emerging technology & market trends, influence the new business technology initiatives at inception; provide expert guidance and analysis of the business impact of potential changes, solution options, feasibility, and recommendations for future state architecture will be highly desired.

You will have the flexibility to work from home, as well as the London office and Hertfordshire office.
