We want to train and employ you as one of our specialist Business Analysts.

What is a Business Analyst?

The role of a BA is different from one organisation to the next and as such you need to be well prepared for the plethora of duties you will be required to perform. You will become a multi-faceted professional that can be utilised in hyper responsive environments to optimise departments, systems, processes and overall business strategy.

As a Business Analyst, you will work within teams whether BAU or project based, alongside a broad range of stakeholders, helping to manage change and plan in line with project goals and business objectives. Your work will be based around the pillars of Systems, Process and Strategy Analysis and implementation. Your role will entail data modelling, eliciting/writing and realising specifications, facilitation of all types, creating and promoting product vision, stakeholder management, supporting Agile teams and being a part of or leading manual testing for UAT.

You will be able to build an understanding of the current situation, identify future needs and create solutions. You are the calm in the storm, someone who seeks clarity and understands the 'why' behind the actions. You thrive in ambiguity using your creative mindset to think divergently. You are analytical enough to hear all points of views and decide for yourself what the best course of action is. You should enjoy gathering information and equipping yourself with knowledge. You can identify problems or questions. You not only develop plans, but you implement them, you are a self-starter. You build strong bonds with your co-workers to form a resilient network that trusts you and the work you do. You are self-organised and disciplined, working hard to understand the work environment, the people and systems within it. You will be confident with all levels of the organisation and always act with emotional intelligence.
