An overview of the role

Our Digital Business Architects put people at the heart of our work driving better business outcomes with and for our clients. We shape this future, as talented Architects delivering leading-edge digital solutions for our clients, combining a clear understanding of business value and a consultative approach to make the difference. We embed sustainability in everything we do, acting as a force multiplier and walking the talk on the path to net zero. Invent Digital Business Architects thrive on the intersection of consulting and architecture, being equally comfortable pitching value propositions as they are creating business capability maps.

Working with leading architects, technology consultants and business sector experts, you will be instrumental in delivering profitable outcomes in business- and technology-oriented environments, helping a broad range of private- and public-sector clients to achieve their strategic goals. Our Digital Business Architects sit within the Digital Architecture guild, part of the Business Technology practice in Capgemini Invent. We are a dynamic community that values growth, professional development, and the ability to make a real difference. We work in diverse multi-disciplinary teams, hand-in-glove with our clients.

What you’ll bring to Digital Architecture:

The focus of your role, as a Digital Business Architect, will be on working on complex problems and leading teams of up-and-coming architects to create innovative solutions for our clients, comprising business and technical solution elements.

As part of your role you will also have the opportunity to contribute to the business and your own personal growth, through activities that form part of the following categories:

  • Business Development – Leading/contributing to proposals, RFPs, bids, proposition development, client pitch contribution, client hosting at events.
  • Internal contribution – Campaign development, internal think-tanks, whitepapers, practice development (operations, recruitment, team events & activities), offering development.
  • Learning & development – Training to support your career development and the skills demand within the company, certifications etc.

What you'll do:

  • Help clients define their digital strategy and build the business case for investing in digital.
  • Define compelling customer value propositions and winning business models for the digital era.
  • Create and documenting solution blueprints, roadmaps, capability models, or operating models.
  • Apply Agile methodologies (Scrum, Kanban, SAFe) to structure delivery teams around value chains and create features and epics.
  • Apply Design Thinking to develop personas, define pain points, define MVPs and prototypes, and designing experiments to test solution hypotheses.
  • Work closely with SMEs to ensure design feasibility, viability, and compliance.
  • Communicate with both business and IT teams at all levels to ensure alignment and either change the solution elements or pivot when necessary.
  • Utilise data-driven decision making and build appropriate recommendations for your client.
  • Cultivate strong relationships among working teams and build enduring relationships with senior leadership.

We'd love to meet with someone with:

  • Business architecture experience in consulting or industry (Business/Enterprise Architect, Senior Business Analyst, Product Owner, Product Manager) using recognised methods and frameworks.
  • Wider experience and capability in technology-enabled rethinking / reengineering of business models (service design, organisational change, business strategy, financial analysis, process improvement such as Lean / Six Sigma).
  • Good leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills.
  • Excellent verbal, written and visual communication skills - able to explain complex concepts simply.
  • Ability to think and react in a high-energy, fast-paced environment.
  • Ability to thrive in an ambiguous environment – and to disambiguate it.
  • Ability to lead a team with direct reports.
  • Being highly organised and results oriented.
  • Delivering results in an Agile environment.
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Eligibility for SC-level clearance, or previously/currently held.
  • Ability to understand and engage with technical teams on highly complex technology and data projects: you won’t be designing a technology stack, and you do need to understand the implications of the stack for the rest of the solution elements while maintaining a laser focus on the business value we’re delivering through this technology.

What we offer:

Capgemini Invent offers architects a culture of learning, ownership, and focus on value.

  • Our consultants are formally trained by industry experts in consulting and client delivery; examples include Agile delivery (Scrum Master, Product Owner, Scaled Agile Framework), technologies (AWS, Azure), Cybersecurity (CISSP, CISM), and TOGAF, which Capgemini’s own IAF contributes to. Capgemini Invent offers you the flexibility to develop various areas of knowledge in specialist domains aligned both to your interests and our clients’ outcomes.
  • Client engagements give you the opportunity to work with our leadership as well as our early- and mid-career professionals in teams where diverse thought and experience are valued
  • You’ll create compelling client propositions, structure and lead high-profile transformations, and gain hands-on exposure to leading technologies, often taking an idea from a concept to a vision, to strategy and then execution.
  • You’ll build and lead teams on client and internal work, with right-shored colleagues of all grades, to get the best results for client, consultant, and company.
  • Les Fontaines: Capgemini Invent has a unique training environment just outside Paris, where we can immerse ourselves in thought-leadership, share knowledge and build capabilities that will help us and our clients to succeed.
  • We hold monthly showcases of our digital transformation initiatives, sharing knowledge and showing off how the power of technology is impacting our clients.
  • We have thriving Invent communities in our three main Invent locations of London, Manchester, and Glasgow holding monthly F2F get-togethers. We have active virtual team meetings every fortnight, as well as access to BT, Invent, and Capgemini UK groups through MS Teams as well as expanding our connections to our local Capemini offices.

    The work

    No matter the project or customer, your work will have a meaningful impact on society, businesses and lives. It’s really rewarding. And it’s also really varied. You’ll potentially work on a huge variety of projects (some larger than others), so you could gain lots of experience in a short amount of time

    Collaboration and Innovation

    We really believe in creating a partnership with our customers. Using our Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE), you’ll get to know the customer’s needs and challenges, demo innovative solutions and quickly solve problems. It’ll help you discover unexpected answers together.

    Learning and Development

    There’s an endless amount to learn at Capgemini, and an endless number of ways to do so. So, you’ll also have unique training opportunities to take advantage of. Some of our consultants even have the chance to go to Les Fontaine (near Paris, France), where we host a conference. Outside of dedicated training, everyone makes time to help and support one another - collaboration is encouraged across all of our teams.


    We’re also focused on using tech to have a positive social impact. So, we’re working to reduce our own carbon footprint and improve everyone’s access to a digital world. It’s something we’re really serious about. In fact, we were even named as one of the world’s most ethical companies by the Ethisphere Institute for the 10th year. When you join Capgemini, you’ll join a team that does the right thing.

    Whilst you will have London, Manchester or Glasgow as an office base location, you must be fully flexible in terms of assignment location, as these roles may involve periods of time away from home at short notice.

    We offer a remuneration package which includes flexible benefits options for you to choose to suit your own personal circumstances and a variable element dependent grade and on company and personal performance.

    In order to commence a role with Capgemini UK plc you will be required to provide documentary proof prior to joining the Company that you are entitled to live and work in the UK.
