Scottish Enterprise (SE) is Scotland’s national economic development agency. We help Scottish businesses to grow nationally and internationally, to become more efficient and innovative, and to access the services they need to grow and help the Scottish economy.

As part of our ambitious data, digital and technology transformation programme, we’re building our enterprise architecture team. This new role reports to the Head of Enterprise Architecture.

The difference you'll make

This is a proactive role that will see you involved in a range of projects, working alongside internal and external partners to create a more joined-up service across our delivery platforms.

You’ll make sure that changes and developments that involve alternative delivery methods are aligned to our enterprise architecture strategy and strategic priorities. This means providing direction and coaching to project delivery teams and conducting audits at key stages.

You’ll also be expected to identify opportunities for improvement and lead the definition of business process management improvement methodologies used between SE and our technology partners.

You’ll deputise for the Head of Enterprise Architecture when required.

The qualities you'll bring

It’s likely that you’ll already be leading, or playing a senior role in, significant change programmes and be well versed in business analysis best practice. You’ll be experienced in working to BPMN standards: if you have a Six Sigma background that will be a bonus but isn’t essential.

You’ll be skilled in mapping our current processes, identifying issues, and defining business processes, including performance measurement. Your problem solving and communication skills will be matched by your capacity to influence and engage at a senior level, and challenge the approach of any development when you see fit.
