Full Time
Senior Consultant (BA, Pre Sales, Fintech)

Location: London, City. UK Delivery team, mostly London but some travel required.
Salary: £70K - £80K + Benefits package (Health, Pension, 25 days holiday etc)

Experienced Software Consultant (BA / Pre Sales) required with a specific focus on data management software into the investment banking (back office, post trade) sector.

We would consider any Financial / Banking Software  (FinTech) experience, but would have a preference for post-trade, back office functions within investment banks or similar large corporates.

As a Senior Consultant in the Professional Services team, you will work with both the Sales and Delivery teams to ensure that business needs are fully understood to aid new client acquisition, ongoing account development and project implementations. This will all come from your Business analysis & requirement garthering expertise to really get under the hood of client needs for the software platform.

The nature of our software means it can meet a very wide range of business requirements. It is used to automate and manage the processing of information. It is extremely flexible and provides an automation toolkit that includes complex data manipulation, reporting capabilities, workflow and email notifications which can all be configured by non-technical users.

A foundation of the role therefore will be the ability to understand extremely varied business processes and then communicate requirements effectively to the technical teams, managing change, producing documents and assisting with building demos in the software as needed. 

Stuff you will do:
 - Working with our prospects and client to ensure that the business needs are fully understood and working with Product Leads to define the required solution
 - Supporting the business development team on new sales opportunities, ensuring that product demonstrations and POCs are meeting business needs (This is NOT a Sales role though!)
 - Developing a detailed understanding of a customer`s specific challenges and requirements, producing requirements documents and assisting with the creation of software solution documents – ensuring that scope change is tightly controlled
 - Advise clients on how business processes could be improved using the software platform
 - Working alongside the marketing team meeting existing clients to build case studies
 - During project implementations, identifying areas for process improvement working with the Product Leads to design solutions where appropriate 
 - Support project deliveries as required, for example running workshops to understand complex business processes or performing business scenario based testing
 - Work with technical teams to drive resolution of support and usability issues
 - Build out our business analysis capability, coaching and mentoring the Delivery team

What we would need to see in people:
 - High competence in eliciting business requirements and managing client workshops
 - Strong commercial awareness, excellent client facing and interpersonal skills
 - Must be a self-starter & have strong communication skills
 - Ability to rapidly understand the customer environment and need
 - Customer facing and experience of operating within a financial services environment. Investment Banking, post-trade strongly preferred.
