Group Network Architect

Closing date
22 Feb 2023

Job Details


Salary: Up to £68K dependent on experience + bonus + benefits

Hybrid working pattern: Where possible, we will seek to accommodate a blended approach to on-site and remote working.

The opportunity:

Whilst MBDA works as a single, integrated company, our networks support projects which must respect national and consortium constraints. The Group Network function exists to coordinate and where possible harmonise network strategy and architecture between our national organisations, as well as facilitating design of our group-level networks.

We are looking for an experienced network architect who can contribute to our mission through both design and technical leadership. You will be equally adept at diplomatically chairing a passionate exchange of ideas between peers in our national operations teams, pitching concept designs to information security colleagues, and setting new architectural directions. It is also likely that this role will be involved in non-standard demands, local/national projects and contributing to the group's move towards cloud services.

What we're looking for from you:
  • Experience working within highly secure environments, ideally handling protectively-marked data.
  • Ability to coordinate and chair technical and design meetings.
  • Comfortable working in an international and multi-cultural context.
  • Understanding of Agile processes for engineering and IT project delivery.

What to expect:

We offer opportunities for career progression, bonus scheme, comprehensive pension package, annual salary review, collaborative working environment and excellent on-site facilities.

We recognise that everyone is unique, and we encourage you to speak to us should you require any advice, support or adjustments throughout our recruitment process. We also welcome applicants who are looking for flexible working arrangements.
