Boscombe/Malvern/Farnborough - flexible on which suits the candidate

Initial 3 Months

£TBC

Working in a Project Team(s) as the lead architect with responsibility to define what could potentially be the an enterprise, system or engineering architecture and derived requirements to produce a solution that can be implemented to enable a balanced and optimum result that considers all stakeholder requirements (customer, business, programmatic, technical).

Key Accountabilities:

* Defining and developing systems architectures in response to customer requirements to address specific purposes
* Devising architectures to capture problems and/or solutions together with the relationships between the problem being addressed and the outline of the solution addressing it.
* Partitioning between discipline technologies and deriving discipline-specific requirements.
* Documenting architectures in a manner which promotes understanding by the stakeholders, analysis and communication.
* Applying systems architectures in dependent activities (other architectures, designs, implementations etc.) - making sure that dependent products are conformant with the architecture.
* Assessment of a range of architectural solutions and justifying the selection of a good solution.

Successful outcomes of this role:

* Delivering systems architectures that meet the customer/stakeholders' requirements.
* Improving the practices and standards of systems architecting and mentoring others with an aptitude to become Systems Architects.
* Codification and cross-fertilisation of architecting best practices.
* Driving commonality and coherence, where appropriate, across the Systems Architecting community.

Challenges:

* Complexity of enterprise / technical problems and potential solutions.
* Necessity of architecting precisely yet at a level of abstraction.
* Provision of competent architectural solutions.
* Developing solutions which have potential impact across technical and enterprise domains and potentially across multiple projects.
* Operating in a discipline area where established practice is of varying maturity.
* Working with multidisciplinary teams that may be drawn from across the organisation (and potentially more widely)
