IT Business Analyst
The Role: IT Business Analyst
Locations: Flexible across UK Contract
Duration: 6 months +
Day rate: £450-£475 per day
We are looking to recruit a number of business analysts on a contract basis, to support a series of projects within a technology focused business. These are classic IT business analyst contract positions, and we have flexibility on location so welcome applications from contractors across the UK.
It's likely you'll be supporting small to medium sized technology projects, and key counterparts in the business will be project managers, alongside various contacts across the typical PMO. We'd describe the delivery environment as being fast moving and agile and it will be your role to provide business analysis of strategic business objectives and drivers in this style of environment, taking into account constraints associated with cost, risk and time.
This is not a political environment, and you'll be given the chance to influence and get things done. Contract duration will be an initial 6 months but there is a good chance of extension to 12 months+.
Purpose of the contract: Role Purpose:
As mentioned, this is a fast moving, multiple project technology environment so coming from that similar background would be a good starting point. You'll be tasked with looking at business process improvement and ongoing benefits analysis and will be responsible for assessing and communicating the likely impact of business, operational and technical change to stakeholders.
You'll need to quickly understand and clarify business goals and objectives driving the need for a business project and alongside lead business analysts, scope and agree all appropriate analysis activities on a project, including the detailed output documentation required and using a consistent project management methodology, you'll ensure project documentation confirms to required governance.
Working with the rest of the team, the goal is to ensure successful delivery of analysis deliverables, providing regular status reports and an up-to-date view of resource utilisation and requirements
Your likely background:
IT business analysis within a multiple project, technology deployment environment. Ideally within a service provider, but we do have flexibility on this. Knowledge of software development life cycles would be a bonus, and familiarity with some of the widely used business analysis tools and techniques would be assumed.
Communication is important, and it's the ability to build relationships, resolve conflicts and negotiate with a wide range of project delivery style stakeholders that will be key. The ability to produce high quality, detailed and thorough analysis documentation in order to present information effectively and clearly to stakeholders is essential and we'd like to think the role suits a business analyst that is working towards or has attained ISEB Business Analysis Diploma or IIBA Certificate of Competency - or similar.
As mentioned, we've got flexibility on locations for these contracts so happy to talk with business analysts across the UK and we should be able to come up with some flexible location arrangements.
