This is a unique opportunity with a client that are well regarded in the marketplace and offer a great working environment.

*Provide accurate estimates for all analysis activities to assist with estimating project costs / timescales
*Deliver analysis activities to the budget, timescales and quality criteria of the relevant development project or maintenance release through the complete lifecycle (and during the post release warranty period)
*Gather and document business requirements (both general requirements - relating to business policies, standards and needs - and technical requirements - relating to technical policies and / or constraints) and transform them into detailed business / functional and non-functional / operational requirements
*Analyse, review, and improve existing business analysis artefacts and processes (e.g. models, diagrams, interface specifications, documentation) or create and maintain these artefacts, if they do not already exist
*Collate and review existing requirements, assess status of deliverables through information gathering and gap analysis and identify new / enhanced requirements
*Along with the relevant project / programme manager, participate in and enforce the Change Management / Change Control Process
*Be able to balance workload across a number of different services
*Operate as a key liaison between client and technical teams with a particular focus on translating business requirements from internal / external users into the information needed by developers and / or database analysts (DBA) and review any technical documentation produced by the technical team members
*Review and / or assist testers with the development of test cases, test scripts and test accounts
*Along with testers and internal / external project stakeholders, evaluate and approve delivered solutions for deployment into system test (SYS), user acceptance test (UAT) and production environments

In order to be successful in the role candidates need,

* An understanding / appreciation of technical knowledge / the technical aspects of a web-based service
*Excellent oral and written communication skills - including expertise in delivering presentations / demonstrations and facilitating / participating in workshops, often involving the various working groups for the different service areas
*Ability to communicate well and form strong working relationships within and across teams / departments / organisations - e.g. peers, managers and senior managers (both internally and externally within shareholder organisations)
*Extensive problem solving abilities
*Skills in translating complex business requirements (both general and technical) into high quality functional and non-functional requirements that the required solution needs to provide
*Ability to work independently - with minimal supervision - as well as work collaboratively to identify, understand and document non-functional requirements (e.g. having awareness of system, infrastructure, and security considerations but consulting with subject matter experts (SMEs) when necessary)
*Experience in dealing with stakeholders at various levels, including senior management
*Knowledge of User Experience / User Interface design considerations
*Experience of documenting user journeys, analysing use cases and defining process models
