The Enterprise Architect role provides you with the opportunity to support a wide range of UK public sector organisations. Your help will enable them to get the maximum benefit from their ICT investments and support critical projects.
As an Enterprise Architect you will have expertise in analysing and developing architectures across the Business, Data, Applications and Infrastructure domains and will have an understanding of the technologies and operational processes required to achieve this. You will be providing, high-value strategy, business analysis, technology and procurement consultancy to ensure any solution aligns with the business aspirations. You could find yourself doing this at the enterprise level in support of major transformation programmes or at the level of targeted projects and interventions.
The role will require you to lead assignments, often responsible for managing small teams and for directly delivering consultancy, ensuring the overall success of the engagement. The role involves producing high quality, formal deliverables and reviewing formal deliverables developed by others. You will also be engaged to respond flexibly and rapidly to emerging client needs, often working in an Agile environment in close alignment to service delivery teams. This role requires significant stakeholder engagement, dealing directly with the client, including in resolving day-to-day issues involved in assignment delivery and developing follow-on opportunities.
You will typically work on the client's site co-located with other project members, who may include the client's own staff, Actica team members and other suppliers.
Due to the nature of customer side working, regular travel within the UK should be expected. The base office is in Guildford but you should expect to spend the majority of your time working on client sites.
We will provide you with the opportunity to further your career in consulting, specialising in the application of a broad range of methodologies and technical specialisations to a wide range of business problems.
A career mentor will be on hand to provide support and guidance throughout your journey with Actica. You will also work with a performance and development manager who will conduct six monthly reviews (annual for Principal Consultant and above) to set career objectives and identify training courses which are both relevant to your current project work, and aligned with your planned career progression.
We provide substantial training, including online, classroom and in-house course provision, leading to nationally recognised qualifications in relation to specialisms such as Enterprise Architecture, Security Architecture, Service Management, Project Management, Agile methodologies, Security Assurance, Governance, and Technology Procurement. We provide structured career development pathways to help you gain responsibility and influence.
Working either individually or as part of a larger Actica team, you will undertake a number of consultancy assignments which could include:
Qualifications and Experience
Experience within the UK Public Sector is desirable, preferably within the ICT context on enterprise solutions. Our position as a client side advisor means that strong influencing and personal skills are essential. The fast moving nature of the ICT environment together with the need to resource multiple, ad-hoc assignments also requires the individual to be intellectually agile, proactive and self-motivated - with the ability to apply a structured approach to often unfamiliar subject matter.
It is essential that the candidate have experience in the application of at least two of the following methods and standards in use within our customer base, additional experience in other elements would be highly desirable:
Preference is given to candidates with a STEM based degree (2.1 or above).
The nature of Actica's business means that a wide and varied background is preferable and the capability to adapt quickly to change is always required.
You may not feel that your skills precisely match the requirements of this job specification; however, we encourage you to apply if this is a role that appeals to you. We require individuals with a broad skillset, so there may be other aspects of your experience which are equally important to us, but that are perhaps not listed in the role specification above.
Actica aims to nurture a diverse workforce through inclusive working practices, promoting equality in our recruitment activities, and by employing candidates on the basis of merit. Discrimination against individuals on the grounds of protected characteristics is not permitted and we take steps to ensure that our staff are made aware of their legal responsibilities when making hiring decisions.
We are keen to improve diversity within our organisation and the industries in which we work, and hope to employ individuals who share that view.
Candidates must be eligible and willing to gain UK Security Clearance to apply for this position.
