The inside word...
  • Oversight of team of 4x Business Analyst activities on the project across multiple work streams. This role is still not purely managerial, as the title suggests.
  • Plan and manage BA work pipeline and assist with prioritising Business Analyst workloads in conjunction with Project Manager.
  • Work with the team to determine and establish BA methodology, artefacts and best practice and ensuring these are appropriate and operating effectively in order to reduce risk and waste. 
  • Review BA artefacts and documentation as required for consistency, quality and accuracy.
  • Serve as a coach, mentor and advisor to the BA's.
  • Develop strong stakeholder relationships and act as a role model in engaging stakeholders.
  • Provide direction, support and co-ordination of efforts of the Business Analysts on the project.
  • Work with other project team members including technical leads, change managers, architects, and external vendor for requirements management and solution implementation.
 

Why you're special...
 
  • Strong communication, advisory and collaboration skills to work with team members and stakeholders at all levels and vendor liaison.
  • BA Lead experience, leading teams of BA's on programmes or projects.
  • Finance, banking compliance or risk management experience preferred.
  • Conceptualisation and problem resolution skills to address issues. 
  • Ability to work at pace and to manage own workload. 
  • Experience with previous system replacement projects, including data migration and integration.


And...what's in it for you?
 
  • Work in a large PMO with hundreds of projects running concurrently - large and complex through to smaller projects. This means a high chance of securing a follow on project/assignment.
  • With fantastic rates, a high profile employer and a great team around you, this will be a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate.
  • This is also a very family oriented business so flexible working conditions can be agreed on application.
  • Talent are an award winning employer of choice, we offer fortnightly pay, full access to established online training platform and additional benefits alongside your contracting rate.
