Business Analyst required for a 3 to 6 month contract based in London and West Sussex
Usually working alongside an architect and a PM, the BA is responsible for ensuring the scope of our delivery is clear and understood. Part of this assurance includes checking how our component fits with the other components, validating what we deliver will achieve the business objective. The BA is then the link between the client and the delivery team(s), helping with clarifications as they arise. Although no official deliverables are specified, it is likely that process and data models will need to be produced to achieve the assurance. Contributions to the commercial proposal wording can also be expected.
Although working alongside others, the BA will need to determine what is needed to achieve their objectives for each project they are assigned to. They could be working on several projects at the same time. They will not be managed on a day to day basis although there are other BAs around to offer help and guidance.
The role includes the need to build a good client relationship as well as with those across the delivery team. The delivery can involve both agile and waterfall approaches and so good experience of both of these is essential.
