My client, a Tier 1 Investment Bank, has an immediate requirement for an experienced Solution Architect with detailed Credit Risk subject matter expertise to join a global programme. The programme objective is to deliver a new Target Operating Model across the bank's technology infrastructure encompassing the Risk, Compliance and Legal functions. In this role you will have responsibility for defining and delivering part of this target operating model, initially specific to the Credit Risk function. Using your in depth subject matter expertise, you will liaise closely with senior stakeholders and users in order to define and agree functional and business architecture  as well as working closely with technology teams to define best practice target state architecture. To be successful in this role you will need:

This is a highly visible position in the bank and requires someone not only with strong overall architectural skills, but also someone who understands the wider business significance of selecting and implementing optimum solutions in this space. Wider knowledge of issues faced in this space by the overall banking community is highly beneficial.
