Company: Capita
Salary: £40,000.00 - £50,000.00 /Year

Job Description:

Senior Business Analyst
Location: Bicester (relocation options available)

Working within an established FTSE100 company, Capita ONE is part of the Capita Group, developing software that supports over 120 Local Authorities in England and Wales who require a single view of a child to improve decision making, and enable early intervention and prevention. ONE is a large, widely-used product suite which makes a real difference to the lives of children and families.

This is an opportunity to be a founder member of a newly established dynamic ‘start-up’ team working on a green-field development project in the Social Care sector. The role is a great opportunity for an experienced and senior business analyst to get involved right at the start of a project. The Senior Business Analyst will be able to have significant influence in shaping both the product and our way of working: including approach definition, planning, agile analysis approach, tool selection, standards setting, direct customer engagement, and user experience definition.

The project must deliver a large amount of functionality in support of complex business processes whilst providing a first class user experience and an appropriate level of process flexibility. The resulting solution will be used to inform high-stakes decision making with real consequences for adults, children and families. Consequently, it must also be accurate and comply with many quality and statutory requirements. The Senior Business Analyst will be responsible for researching, identifying, managing, and documenting the requirements of the system in a manner that is aligned to our core objectives: user experience, process flexibility, accuracy, and compliance. They will use their business analysis and software project experiences to define requirements, processes, models, and specifications which make sense as part of an overall solution and can be efficiently implemented by a large agile team.

The role is based in Bicester just north of Oxford, and only 45 minutes by train from London, with the occasional requirement to travel in the UK and abroad. If you’re open to relocating, we can help facilitate this.

If you feel you’re ready for your next challenge, have worked with large off shore development teams, have core skills in line with those below and are interested in working with an entrepreneurial team, please submit your application for consideration.

Essential Experience/Skills:

* Proven problem solving and analysis skills in a software development and/or delivery environment.
* Ability to develop & maintain good relationships with business and systems stakeholders
* Proven negotiation skills working above and below and outside of own role (managers, peers, reports)
* Excellent communication skills and a demonstrable ability to communicate with customers, users, internal and external management at all levels of the business
