  • You can evolve and define the governance landscape within a project, client and internal environment obtaining both technical and business approval at the appropriate stage to support delivery of the outcomes eg TDA, DDA, EAB etc
  • You can build and sustain strong working relationships with senior technical and delivery individuals within our customer organisations, building trust and advocacy for our services, helping promote us as a go-to' vendor for technical delivery
  • You can influence how teams' work in-line with the delivery methodology, coach and mentor more junior colleagues and customer staff whilst providing technical leadership and assurance
  • You can define and promote opportunities to reuse components and common service patterns, understanding the patterns and interactions on a larger scale across portfolios, programmes and wider government context and how it will impact our portfolio of work.
  • You promote technology and vendor agnosticism, whilst making evidence-based decisions when required and thereafter explain those decisions to all levels of both technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • You can make decisions characterised by high levels of risk and complexity. You can recommend mitigations and changes, as risk and complexity increase
  • You can carry out technical knowledge transfer outcomes (eg handover to clients, mentoring client staff)
  • You can assure your current projects (ensuring we operate efficiently, innovate appropriately, and build a reputation for engineering excellence).
  • You can support pre-sales activity by developing compelling solution approach summaries, high level designs, estimates, presentations, product demonstrations and discussions
  • You will actively participate in and help lead our Communities of Practice (with emphasis on Cloud and Technical Architecture), including mentoring more junior colleagues
  • You will actively support recruitment and general management, including interviewing, leading, and mentoring more junior colleagues
