The working arrangement is hybrid in the Blackburn office, with most colleagues working from home on Mondays and Fridays.

Main Purpose:

An additional Business Analyst is needed to help implement new business projects and support future process and system changes.

The immediate focus of the new role will be to run and co-ordinate the testing activities required for the latest business project. The successful candidate will be trained on the use of a new automated testing tool and will be responsible for updating and running this application.

Key Objectives:

The Business Analyst will be a key facilitator of process and system changes within the business. You will work to understand the processes and systems used and, where required, you will recommend and implement agreed improvements.

You’ll work with the Product Manager and Business Analyst to deliver changes and work with third party software suppliers to provide them with a clear list of system requirements.

You’ll also need to be able to communicate with business colleagues to help understand new requirements and to explain how changes can impact their area.

  • Making sure that the application is updated whenever changes are made to the system.
  • Running automated tests and analysing the output.
  • Raising any bugs or issues that are discovered and providing detail that should lead to a quick diagnosis of the problem.
  • Re-testing fixes.

You’ll be expected to;

  • Work closely with colleagues within the business teams to understand their processes and use of systems.
  • Use a number of tools to help identify process improvements and recommend them in appropriate forums.
  • Capture and document clear system requirements.
  • Work with third party software development companies and internal colleagues to deliver necessary change.
  • Maintain a backlog of pending system improvements.
  • Carry out system configuration to implement change.
  • Analyse data to help better understand a situation.
  • Investigate, analyse, and resolve service desk jobs that fall within the team’s remit.
