Job Description

It is a very exciting time to join us as we continue on a major digital transformation programme. Our existing software systems form part of the critical national infrastructure, safeguarding land and property ownership valued at £7 trillion, enabling over £1 trillion worth of personal and commercial lending to be secured against property across England and Wales.

The HM Land Registry Vision is “to become the world’s leading land registry for speed, simplicity, and an open approach to data.”

To deliver this, the Architecture Practice vision is “to become a high performing practice that will lead transformation of the organisation by ensuring we use the right technologies, at the right time, in the right way.”

Given the scale of change we are seeking Senior Technical Architects who can understand the magnitude of the challenge, taking a top down view to identify the things we need to change but still getting close to the tech and delivery aspects of architecture.

The Architecture Practice produces the Technology Strategy to ensure HMLR is moving towards a collectively agreed and understood target state that aligns with the business objectives of HMLR.

The Architecture Practice uses the Technology Strategy to:

• inform all decisions on technical architecture & design across the domains of business, data, software, infrastructure and security.
• guide leadership, influence future technology decisions and supports the development of roadmaps.
• provide the validation framework to technically assure business change.
• avoid technical debt, or technology lock-in, by ensuring it evolves with HMLR’s needs and remains relevant.

HMLR is on a transformation journey and the architecture practice supports this by producing a forward view of our intentional architecture. This enables fast paced change without sacrificing governance and oversight by producing essential rather than extensive documentation.
