You will be part of a small team ensuring that identified opportunities are analysed for their information needs, and these requirements are correctly matched in the solutions being delivered.

We're looking for:

  • Ability to conduct effective requirements workshops and can adapt a variety of techniques to elicit details from a wide set of stakeholders across the University.
  • Produce cost-benefit analysis evaluating the costs and benefits of different IT solutions, recommending the most cost-effective and efficient approach to meeting business needs.
  • A passion for delivery achieved through well-communicated requirements, options papers, workflow mapping, user stories and acceptance criteria.
  • Someone keen to contribute to continuous improvement of their work and that of the Business Analysts' practice within the University.
