SQL Application Support Analyst/Business Analyst (SQL Server Application Support Engineer UNIX Windows Batch Scripting Credit Risk Banking Finance) required by my client in London.

You MUST have the following experience:

  • Strong SQL Server - writing queries, stored procedures, views, tables
  • Finance or banking experience- knowledge of loans, lending, mortgages, deposits, trading or asset finance within investment banking, corporate banking, commercial banking, private banking or retail banking

  • Working with remote teams abroad
  • IIS, Tomcat, Apache
  • Informatica
  • ETL tools
  • Agile

Role: SQL Application Support Engineer in a team of two for a medium-sized investment bank in London. You will be working in a global role, providing support for Risk systems hosted both in the UK and abroad. This will involve sitting with users, performing tests, understanding what users are doing, working on projects and sending work overseas. You will work closely with the centralised BI Solutions support team, which provides financial and regulatory reporting for business divisions across EMEA. You will support front-office users who call with queries about data quality, reports or application faults for a range of in-house and 3rd party SQL, Windows and UNIX-based applications. If you do not have the experience, you will be trained in Windows and UNIX batch scripting. You will also be trained in the configuration and support of web (Apache, Tom Cat and IIS) based applications and Informatica.

There will be a business analysis element to the role that will involve communicating with business stakeholders to understand application requirements. You will then document these requirements, liaise with BI developers and carry out UAT. If you have no experience as a business analyst, this is an area where you can grow. If you have some already, this is an opportunity to consolidate your knowledge and skills.

After a settling-in period, there will be on-call work. It will be one week in four.

The bank is relaxed, sociable and meritocratic. There are excellent opportunities for progression.
