A great opportunity for an experienced Business Analyst to join a newly created team that is focused on Business Change, providing a single point of coordination and common approach to the various projects running and planned across the business.

Your remit is to help the business understand, plan and prioritise change, working with stakeholders across the Front and Back offices to schedule and help deliver meaningful change, aligning this to longer-term strategic objectives.

As a Lead Business Analyst you will be responsible for understanding the content and implications of business-change, either working independently or managing workstreams of 2-3 BAs to ensure projects deliver solutions that facilitate the achievement of the anticipated benefits.

You will be a candidate with strong leadership potential, with the potential and appetite to line-manage and develop colleagues in future roles.

Some of the key responsibilities for the Lead Business Analyst include:

- Working with Business Stakeholders to swiftly agree and lock-down project goals, scope and initial requirements.
- Understand and articulate the end-to-end Business Impacts of change across people, processes, systems and customers.
- Liaise among stakeholders/subject-matter-experts to elicit, analyse, communicate, and validate requirements for new and changing business processes, policies and information systems.
- Identify gaps and understand opportunities in the context of the requirements.
- Capture and model benefits and business-cases.
- Ensure requirements are traceable to project objectives and benefits-cases.
- Work along-side Project Managers and Solutions architects to create Project Approach and Plans.
- Formulate operational designs (including business-processes) to fulfil business requirements.
- Liaise with Change/IT teams to ensure technical solutions meet Business Requirements and take account of strategic business needs and direction.

(i.e.

work to ‘bridge-the-gap’ between the business and technical communities).
- Workstream-lead up to 2-3 Business-Analysts (i.e.

allocate and manage their deliverables and output to the project/programme).

Education and Experience

- Extensive experience of operating as a BA (at least 5 years+) across full project lifecycle and within Financial Services organisations; i.e.

delivering Requirements and Operational Design (Business-Processes) and supporting implementation of business-change projects.

(essential)
- Business Analysis qualification (e.g.

ISEB, Agile Product-Owner, CBAP, Lean/SixSigma) (highly desirable).
- Project Management qualification (e.g.

Prince II) (desirable)
- Driven and passionate about achieving world-class delivery of change.
- Structured Business-Analysis skills and approaches (e.g.

workshop facilitation, requirements capture, analysis and documentation, [use-case and BRDs], business-impact assessment, business process design [BPMN and Swimlane], benefits identification and business-case modelling, traceability management).
- Excellent Analytical and Problem Solving skills (including creative thinking and decision-making).
- Ability to gather and analyse complex information, data and opinions from a range of sources (including people and documentation), assimilating this regarding how it relates to a business-need, process or concept (i.e.

systems and conceptual thinking).

This is a great opportunity for a Business Analyst who wants to progress their career.

You will have a strong focus on Business Change, ideally within financial services, and be keen to become a leader of other Business Analysts.

The role is currently fully remote based, but will be looking at a 50/50 split once guidleines permit it.
