  • You will ideally have 3-5 years experience and worked in a Retail environment or fast commercial background.
  • Technically sound, you’ll have a relevant degree and be skilled in systems analysis, defining requirements and designing system solutions – with an excellent appreciation of the technical implications of changes you want to drive. Knowledge of SQL is a must!
  • If you have CRM experience it would be a bonus too
  • Exposure to SDLC
  • Present back analysis to stakeholders to get buy in and make recommendations for an effective and robust solution.

So what will you be doing as a Business Analyst / Project Manager

  • They are an E-Commerce business with a very high profile set of websites used by customers around the world. However there business success is underpinned by a set of systems that manage their product, stock, orders, payments and customer details. They have built and enhanced all these systems and websites in-house over a number of years and they serve them very well. 
However they continue to innovate in all areas of the business and the Analyst Team needs to be at the heart of new ideas, evaluating how we can implement them systems and operational processes – including what we can enable customers to do for themselves on our websites.

  • The successful candidate in this role will be leading projects to analyse and implement such changes. They don’t expect you to do this alone so you will need to be capable of bringing others along with your thinking. You will ideally be able to point to experience in previous role relevant to this challenge.

It’s a great time to join us. Their team is fairly small, so there’s no danger of being pigeon-holed into a single, narrow project. They can guarantee that there will be no shortage of challenges for the successful candidate. It is a great place to work, with a culture that is highly collaborative. They’re keen to recruit someone who will thrive by being open, flexible and friendly.
