Be a data visionary!

This a brilliant opportunity for a Data Architect with solid experience in designing and building data models to fulfill the strategic data needs of a business.

As Data Architect, you’ll help organisations get the maximum benefit from their technology investments.

The role.

As the Data Architect, you will advise on planning, specifying, enabling, creating, acquiring, maintaining, using, archiving, retrieving, controlling, and purging data as part of supporting a series of client-side engagements.

This is an opportunity to step up and lead assignments as well as be responsible for supervising direct reports whilst ensuring the overall success of the engagement.

Working individually or as part of a larger team, you’ll undertake a number of consultancy assignments that could include:

  • Defining data flows, i.e., which parts of the organization generate data, which require data to function, how data flows are managed, and how data changes in transition;
  • Creating genuinely useful outcomes to help deliver client goals in major business transformation programmes;
  • Hands-on analysis, not just assurance, including working with clients, users and other team members to address issues before they become blockers;
  • Translating business requirements into technical specifications, including data streams, integrations, transformations, databases, and data warehouses;
  • Defining the data architecture framework, standards and principles, including modelling, metadata, security, reference data such as product codes and client categories, and master data such as clients, vendors, materials, and employees;
  • Defining reference architecture, which is a pattern that others can follow to create and improve data systems;
  • Offering advice on potential solutions and products to solve and enhance client data and analytical reporting capabilities;
  • Collaborating and coordinating with multiple departments, stakeholders, partners, and external vendors.

About you.

Ideally, you will have experience working on Public Sector projects.

You’ll also have the following:

  • Data architecture and modelling;
  • Cloud analytics platforms e.g. relevant Azure platform services;
  • Data visualisation tools e.g. Power BI, Qlik Sense;
  • Data science approaches and tooling e.g. Spark;
  • Data engineering approaches;
  • Government Digital Service approaches including the Government Service Design Manual and the Service Standard;
  • Enterprise or Solution architecture development using a recognised framework e.g. TOGAF;
  • Business or systems analysis methods and tools, e.g. BPMN, UML;
  • Software development methods and techniques e.g. Agile methods such as SCRUM;
  • Public sector best practice guidance, e.g. ITIL, OGC tookit;
