Business Analyst

A utility company based in the north east of England is delivering an Asset Management Programme. The programme scope is extensive encompassing capabilities across six directorates and focuses on how the company will best use information and leverage technologies to enable them to make decisions about how they invest in, manage and maintain their assets in support of achieving their corporate vision and outcomes.

As part of this programme, the company will be introducing a new work and asset management system and innovative ways of working so that they have an improved approach to the way they manage and operate their assets. The new technology will help their people do their jobs quicker and more easily, making sure the right people are doing the right thing when it comes to asset related jobs, and providing solutions and guidance so that they can manage their asset related data better.


  • Develop a detailed understanding of our current approach to asset performance monitoring and reporting.
  • Develop a detailed understanding of our current approach to asset related analytics and decision support.
  • Develop a detailed understanding of our current approach to asset health monitoring including available sensor technology.

Items 1 - 3 above should include:

  • Interviews with all business areas who currently undertake these activities
  • Understand and document current roles and responsibilities
  • Identify current NWG practice and identify opportunities for improvement
  • Identify the data sources used in our current approach and how data is manipulated
  • Benchmark with external SME and review available literature in this area
  • Make recommendations for improvement and include costs and benefits


An agreed strategy for asset performance and health monitoring.

Appropriate organisation arrangements to deliver the strategy.

Suitable tools and technology to monitor asset performance and health.

This will be a fast paced, high pressure environment, necessitating a can do attitude and a flexible approach to ensure these projects deliver on time, but also deliver the desired outcomes, which in some cases might change as the delivery progresses. You should be a 'self-starter’ with demonstrable organisational skills and be able to engage and build rapport with a diverse range of operational and technical teams across the business.
