We have an exciting opportunity for an Enterprise Architect to join our enterprise architecture function and lead our data governance initiatives, to propose solutions to data governance challenges and develop our data governance strategy.

Run and chair various cross Tribe ‘Working Group’ to develop processes, approaches and solutions which can be shared across Tribes to deliver initiatives in a more effective and joined up way.
