Vivate Recruitment are currently looking to hire a Chief Architect with experience of digital programmes within the banking and finance arena for a consultancy client we work with in central London.

The digital portfolio for the clients commercial division is extensive and covers offerings for several market segments. There are extensive plans to expand even further.

This role will cover several of the offerings to ensure current commitments are met and future plans can be established.

A successful candidate will have been the lead or chief architect on a large digital transformation programme in financial services.

The right Chief Architect will have an extremely pragmatic approach and be from a technical background rather than a business change one. Strong stakeholder management skills and strong communication both written and verbal to be able to both present the Digital roadmap to CXO levels and also engage with Architecture and engineering teams.

The role will initially involve a staged handover from the previous chief architect and on boarding of their previous workload. Part of the success criteria of this role will be the capture and transfer of knowledge to allow a permanent hire , once identified, to on-board quickly.
