Job Description


Lloyds Banking Group is changing. We are already the UK’s leading

digital bank, with millions of active web and app customers across our main

brands. We are investing in transforming and optimising our technology

further and are looking for architecture leaders to help drive this


Digital technology is at the heart of our business, it is an integral part

of our corporate strategy. Our goal is to ensure our services are based on

modern, scalable and resilient technologies that deliver value to both our

customers and our business. Our culture brings together talented, driven

people from a diverse group of backgrounds, people who are at the core of

who we are.

About the role

You will be joining a small, dynamic team of strategy oriented architects,

focused on the overall technology strategy and architecture of the group. We

collaborate closely with other members of the architecture practice,

business and engineering leaders around the organisation to deliver

strategic papers, shape roadmaps, provide thought leadership and inspire

adoption of modern technologies.

In your role you will have an opportunity to engage with senior leaders,

advise them on how to leverage technology to achieve desired outcomes and

articulate optionality that balances different drivers for change. Our team

backlog frequently changes to reflect the exciting environment we operate

within and focus our energy on most value adding architecture activities.

Consequently, our work varies; some examples include articulating a

technology strategy at the group level, shaping divisional and value stream

roadmaps, creating proposals for adoption of new technologies, working with

partners to deliver value-adding insight, defining options to address

architectural debt, creating domain specific whitepapers, and many more.

and industry trends and apply that insight to the organisation.


Enterprise Architecture

You have a background in enterprise architecture or technology consulting

roles with emphasis on shaping capability, domain or organisational

architecture during your career and be able to relate architectural concepts

experiences is important to you and you are able to communicate equally well

with business and technological communities at all levels.



Your passion is for applying modern technologies to transforming established

and large organisational systems to next generation platforms. You have some

depth of knowledge and experience in applying modern web‐scale

technologies, such as those used to implement API, Data, AI, Cloud in

commercial organisations for the purposes of delivering value. Furthermore

you are actively interested in Fintechs and emerging technologies and how

they can be used and integrated into organisations to solve new problems or
