In addition, this role may be called upon to support the broader team with BA resourcing and support, such as recruitment and selection, induction, BA coaching and support. 

In return for your expertise and commitment to the role, you will be part of a growing and supportive team focused on your development and progression within Business Improvement and the wider Information Technology Services team.

  • Thorough understanding of BA methods and techniques, ideally relatable to common and best practice industry standards
  • Extensive BA delivery experience in significant sized projects, with demonstrated responsibility for leading and driving the delivery of BA outcomes
  • Experience with developing and implementing capability uplift into an organisation (i.e. through the uplift of process, standards, methods, guidelines & tools)
