Own the architecture of a major challenger bank who are set to transform and dominate the UK banking market

[Head of Architecture, Lead Architect, Chief Architect, Head of Enterprise Architecture, Lead Enterprise Architect, Chief Enterprise Architect, Director of Architecture, Challenger Bank, Retail Banking, Infrastructure, Blockchain, Open Banking, Robotics, AI]

Join one of the UK’s most important challenger banks, who have the backing of a large banking group behind them.

This hire will be in control of the whole architecture of the firm from a technology perspective, and will lead a team of enterprise architects. They will also be instrumental in the build out of the brand new change and delivery organisation and the ecosystem itself.

There is a huge programme of large-scale, exciting projects and change ahead, and technology will play an absolutely critical part in overcoming the challenges along the way.

This role offers the best of both worlds – the opportunity to help create, architect and grow a challenger bank, with all the flexibility to adopt and leverage the most cutting edge technology available, but with the financial backing, capabilities and security of a major banking group behind them.

Requirements:

  • Experience of leading enterprise architecture in a large organisation
  • Experience of owning relationships and facing off to stakeholders at very senior levels
  • Financial services experience – preferably retail banking
  • Experience with innovative/fintech/challenger bank environments – e.g. areas such as blockchain, open banking, robotics, AI
  • Broad infrastructure knowledge – e.g. areas such as Cloud, Citrix, Office 365, middleware, security…
