You'll be part of a team of 4 Business Analysts. This is an Agile work stream so you'll need proven experience of working in this methodology, scrum meetings, Kanban style, two week sprints etc.


You'll naturally have deep experience in requirements gathering/producing (user stories), understanding technical changes, data and operational flows, producing and understanding process maps and in translating process maps for system analysts to design. As an expert in your area you'll need to support the other Business Analyst’s (Product owners) and drive the Developers and Testers to deliver.


The role needs a self-starter, someone that can hit the ground running quickly with very little hand holding outside of where the programme is in terms of meeting deadlines.


Required background

  • Financial services/retail banking background
  • Agile/Scrum project experience
  • Large scale project experience
  • Strong Business Analysis skills - business transformation, business readiness, stakeholder management, communications, capturing requirements, user stories, creating technical requirement documentation, process review, mapping and re-engineering ('as-is', 'to-be') etc


Must be comfortable with going through standard financial services background checks (credit, work history, Disclosure Scotland etc).


6 month initial contracts available, strong likelihood of extension thereafter.
