Business Analyst

I have an exciting new opportunity for a Business Analyst to join my clients newly formed Corporate Strategy Team on an initial 3-month contract basis. You will support their efforts to bring a new knowledge asset into the business by leading their process to produce requirements and perform the necessary analysis and documentation to create requirement documents and scope for the project.

This exciting project will give you experience across big data, information management, user interfaces, employee communications, business change and the development of impactful new processes and tools, on a global scale.

My client need a savvy, diplomatic, detail-oriented Business Analyst who can bring leadership to guide how they build specific requirements, starting from a pure concept as well as take a diplomatic approach to influencing a team of people who are not dedicated to the project to contribute the inputs that they need in order to deliver their scope.

Business Analyst

As we said above, this role is about leading the creation of a detailed requirements document for our strategic knowledge asset. Key responsibilities include:

Project Delivery
• Work with the Project Team and business and technical stakeholders from around the globe to clarify the full scope of the Project. This may involve working in conjunction with other BA’s.

• Work with the Project Team to ensure all requirements, use cases and user stories are accurately captured, defined and prioritised in accordance with the overall plan.

• Provide regular and accurate reports of progress and any changes to the Project Manager, Strategy Director and other Stakeholders as required.
• Contribute to regular Project Team meetings to ensure the correct tasks are being worked on and share key decisions required, risks identified and highlight and issues encountered.

Knowledge, skills and experience required
Not surprisingly, we need someone who has experience taking a pure concept and being able to work with a business to turn that into a clear and thorough scope and set of specific requirements for a project. Key skills/experience that we are looking for include:
• Strong experience in requirements engineering – elicitation/ gathering, stakeholder engagement, stakeholder management and workshops.
• Previous work history within a complex global organisation.
