This includes a comprehensive understanding and application of TOGAF principles, specifically focusing on infrastructure architecture components such as data centers, networks, servers, and cloud environments
  • Bring end-to-end "Solution Architecture" focus (i.e. functional fit of applications to business need and operating model, as well as technical suitability and integration of systems), delivered in line with IT Strategy and Principles
  • Creation and maintenance of design assets (e.g. Level 0/1 designs, overview documents, options/assessment papers, Enterprise Architecture assets (e.g. infrastructure architecture, catalogues etc). This involves a particular emphasis on infrastructure architecture documentation, catalogues, and alignment with TOGAF standards
  • Support effective Design Governance operation through deliverable review and presentation of designs to appropriate governance bodies for approval (including oversight of supplier design activity and deliverables)
  • Liaise with relevant stakeholders and suppliers to identify and resolve design questions, issues and gaps
  • Identification and resolution of design issues, risks and gaps for project(s)

The ideal candidate for the role of Infrastructure Architect will have:

  • In-depth knowledge of On-Premise infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, storage, networking)
  • Proficiency in Cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud
  • Strong understanding of virtualisation, containerisation, and microservices architecture
  • Familiarity with security best practices in both On-Premise and Cloud environments
  • Experience as a Technology Architect on major change or transformational programmes with a broad range of analytical, design and IT skills, preferably in Wealth Management
  • Recognised Architecture / IT qualifications (e.g. TOGAF, ITIL) are desirable
  • Familiarity with associated framework concepts, including the TOGAF Enterprise Continuum, ITIL Service Lifecycle or ITIL Service Value Stream
  • Experience of working in a complex sourcing environment with multiple, diverse partnerships
  • Degree qualified or with equivalent professional experience
  • Well organised and able to prioritise workload in line with tight deadlines and work effectively under pressure
  • Broad experience of all architecture domains (including business, data, applications, integration, infrastructure and security) and reference models, standards and patterns
  • Business and IT architecture design at the conceptual (high-level), logical and physical (detailed) levels
  • Ability to take a strategic view and see the 'big-picture', aligned to the ability to adopt an analytical approach to complex problem solving and consideration of operational implications
  • Proven ability to design and deliver flexible, reliable, operable, cost effective solutions
  • Demonstrable experience in architecture standards, services, solution design and implementation, architecture principles and architecture views
