Who are Lloyds Banking Group?

Lloyds Banking Group is the UK's largest Digital, Retail and Commercial Bank with a focus on Helping Britain Prosper.

We're on the mission to build the bank of the future, and we need your help do it!

Continuing our extensive transformation programme, we're redefining what a bank is from the inside out. Our technology, our culture, and our mind-set is changing to craft a true engineering-led organisation.

The role

Technology is at the heart of our business and Enterprise Architecture is at the heart of technology leadership - it is an integral part of our corporate strategy. As we go through this business and IT transformation, we need to be innovative, creative, and forward thinking. Our goal is to ensure our services are based on modern, scalable, and resilient technologies that deliver value to both our customers and our business. Our culture brings together hardworking, driven people from a diverse set of backgrounds - people at the core of who we are.

This role is part of the Insurance & Wealth Enterprise Architecture team facing off to the Insurance & Wealth business as well as to their delivery organisations. You'll be joining a senior team of dynamic strategy-oriented enterprise architects, passionate about partnership and collaboration with stakeholders. The central team is small however this role will include the leadership of the federated solution architect community.

What you'll get involved with:

Aligning with the business and group technology strategy, you'll 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'll 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 to balance the needs of the current with the needs of the transformed future trying to minimise technical debt whilst enabling the business outcomes.

Given the transformation journey we're 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 Group.

What we'd like to see from you:

  • A broad understanding of software, infrastructure, integration, security and data aspects of platform architectures with the ability to set and challenge direction across these domains as required.

  • Ability to credibly talk about their strategy and how your strategy enables their future requirements.

  • A good understanding of the benefits of Enterprise Architecture and ability to articulate this to stakeholders.

  • Ability to communicate equally well with business and technological communities at all levels including CxO.

  • Excellent communication and stakeholder management skills.

  • A genuine passion to do the right thing.

  • Strong influencing skills.

  • Ability to logically decompose complex problems.

  • A strong collaborator able to work in and lead virtual teams to a common goal.

Desirable skills

  • A good understanding of market trends.

  • Experience in Insurance & Wealth.

  • Experience in Business and Technology Transformation.

  • Experience in working in a regulated environment.

What will you get in return?

On top of our team ethos we're genuine about both equal opportunity and our colleagues representing the communities we serve - developing and advancing the best in our people through personal development, training, qualifications and upskilling on the job.

Together we make it possible!
