Help us deliver our new digital future

About us

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has a vision to build an economy that works for everyone, so that there are great places in every part of the UK for people to work and for businesses to invest, innovate and grow.

There has never been a more exciting time to work in BEIS - especially within Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT). We have only just begun to consider how we might exploit the options presented by the latest technology. This is an exceptional opportunity for you to play your part in guiding the Department into a new digital future.

The role

As Solution Architect, you will lead and manage the technical design and migration of the Department’s Office 365 platform, it’s connectivity to legacy Line of Business applications, and the continual development of SharePoint provision - ensuring that these remain operational and fit-for-purpose.

You’ll own all delivery responsibilities, deliver technical leadership and architecture, and be the go-to expert on sourcing Office 365 solutions throughout BEIS. As such, we’ll look to you to provide Office 365-focused support in the development of cloud strategy, and to shape end-to-end solutions and solution architectures.

About you

You’re skilled in working with business and technology stakeholders to translate business problems into technical designs, which you optimise through iterative processes.

You are experienced in designing and implementing solutions using Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Skype, Teams, Yammer and One Drive. At the same time, you can bridge the gap between the technical and non-technical so that concepts are understood by everyone involved in the process.

You’re the kind of person who can look beyond immediate technical problems to identify the wider implications: you’re well-versed in relevant historical context, which helps you to understand future impact; you understand how current work fits into broader contexts and strategies; and you’re constantly searching for underlying problems or new opportunities.


As a Civil Service employee, you’ll be entitled to a large range of benefits, including:

- Regular performance and development reviews
- 25 days of annual leave on entry, increasing to 30 days after 5 years
- One further day paid privilege entitlement to mark the Queen’s Birthday
- Flexible working patterns including part- time or time-term working
- Generous paid maternity and paternity leave
- Interest-free season ticket and bicycle loans
- Competitive contributory pension scheme

Deadline: 4 February 2019
