Would you like to impact the daily lives of people in every corner of the world? Then keep reading.

Job Purpose:

Enterprise Architecture (EA) Governance & Modelling (G&M) delivers a series of services to Maersk and internally to EA. G&M has two main responsibilities:

1. The management & support of the Architecture Governance capability within Maersk;
2. The development, management and curation of an underlying modelling repository that captures, curates and publishes the logical Maersk business and technology landscape.

This job definition is for the Team Leader of the second of these core responsibilities, Modelling, reporting to the Head of Governance & Modelling in EA but expecting to act with a high degree of autonomy over time.

The Modelling Team Leader is expected to manage all aspects of the modelling team’s work, as well as look to defining its future direction. Established as a service to the rest of Maersk, Modelling is built on three pillars:
1. Capture – the process of bringing materials into the modelling environment, either through imports or modelling in the modelling tool – and ensuring that the resultant models meet the requisite quality requirements of the team and the supplier.
2. Curation – the definition, development and delivery of the structures used in the modelling tool and repository to provide the right foundations for capture, analysis and publication.
3. Publish – the delivery of quality data for all stakeholders through a variety of channels based on the data in the repository and any other relevant data. While the use of the core tool and its web-based publication capability are at the heart, there are always occasions where other channels of delivery will be required.

The use of the modelling tool is a fundamental part of capturing the conceptual and logical outline of the Maersk landscape. As such, the tool and the information in its repository is used across Maersk. Managing the expectations of such a diverse strakeholder set and ensuring that they are getting from the modelling environment what they need is crucial to the on-going success of the Modelling work.
