The Role:

We require an experienced Systems Architecture / Solutions Consultant who can help our client understand and respond to Cyber Vulnerabilities. Your role will be to help analyse and visualise complex security problems, identify suitable solutions and support their delivery to stakeholders. It is pivotal to the reduction of our client’s cyber risk in a high-tempo and highly agile project.

You will be expected to demonstrate positive and effective communication skills - especially as you will be required to engage with Senior Staff.

  • Clarify requirements with stakeholders
  • Develop and assess solution options, cognisant of metrics used for prioritisation and non-technical constraints, such as procurement strategies
  • Support the development of the specific procurement strategy for each intervention and define the preferred solution architecture
  • Support the technical aspects of the artefacts needed for procurement, such as Statements of Requirements, competition question sets, and Commitment Cases
  • Support engagement with suppliers as needed

  • Knowledge of and demonstrable experience of complex delivery within an MOD environment
  • Knowledge of and demonstrable experience of complex systems integration
  • Knowledge of and demonstrable experience of complex procurements within the constraints of MOD’s procurement processes.
  • Knowledge of and demonstrable experience of options analysis from a technical perspective.

Desirable Skills:

  • The project responds to stakeholder needs from across the enterprise. Therefore, a breadth of knowledge is desired over highly technical knowledge:
  • A broad knowledge of how Defence Operates.
  • A broad knowledge of MOD’s capabilities and subordinate technical systems.
  • A broad knowledge of Security Operations
  • A broad knowledge of security and IT tooling
  • Practical experience of Microsoft Security Portfolio
  • Knowledge of Networking, Software Applications, Storage, Cloud
  • Commercial & Industry knowledge
  • Ability to identify and quantify Cyber Security Risk
  • Work with minimal guidance or supervision
