One of the UK's leading multi-sector organisations and household names are looking for a Technical Business Analyst to play a key role in their huge retail transformation programme.

Spec overview
As a technical business analyst you'll work with all kinds of people from across retail to understand and document their Business Intelligence requirements. This is an end-to-end role, so you'll be working with stakeholders to mock-up and shape business requirements, and then helping work them into functional and technical specifications alongside the rest of the BI programme team. We'll look for you to really get under the skin of stakeholder needs on the programme, and establish yourself as a true expert who can understand the strategic context and make recommendations that'll really add value to our BI solutions.

What you'll do:

*Work on the Retail Business Transformation Programme, helping to generate a metrics and report catalogue amongst other work packages
*Run workshops with customers to fully understand and document their requirements, and produce accessible functional specs
*Perform root cause analysis- understanding customers' problems with existing and future problems so we can make valuable recommendations and build solutions
*Use technology to mock-up proposed BI solutions for customers, helping to shape and iterate the final product throughout our agile development process
*Build strong networks in the business, presenting at business forums to promote our enhanced BI capabilities
*To be successful, we'll need you to bring a tried and tested BA skillset, as well as a natural ability to build strong relationships with people at all levels of our business. A track record working on data projects is essential, as we'll need you to understand and actively promote our BI solutions. And if you've got the thinking ability to see the bigger picture, ask the right questions, and really add value by positively challenging our customers' requirements, you'll thrive in our ever-changing and energetic environment.

We'd love to speak to you if:
*You have BA experience, working across multiple projects simultaneously, with some significant exposure to data change projects
*You have significant experience working with SQL, SAP BI Suite and/or microstrategy (other packages such as Tableau, Qlikview also useful but less important)
*You have a natural problem solving ability that's been evidenced in a commercial environment, with experience performing root cause analysis
*You have amazing relationship management skills, with the confidence to positively challenge and influence at the highest level
*You can bring the ability to think strategically, and look beyond customer's immediate requirements to recommend solutions that would really add value
*You have a BA qualification like BCS (it would be a big advantage, but it's not essential)
