Job Description

Are you a commercially minded problem solver? Do you love delivering projects? Can you influence change? If yes, then we may have the role for you!

As a Lead Business Analyst, you will work closely with teams across the business to understand, document and deliver requirements, as we land some exciting new changes for the Bank. You will recognise the different customer perspectives and how colleagues are impacted by a project. As part of your role, you will need to make sure that all colleagues achieve their project completion to create fans across the Bank.

So what would you be doing?...

• Working with subject matter experts and facilitating workshops to understand and prioritise their requirements
• Coordinating communications and training activities to support the implementation of projects
• Contributing to business case benefits identification and articulation
• Performing ‘As Is’ and ‘To Be’ analysis to identify root cause of challenging business problems
• Developing and evaluating solutions to make recommendations that align with wider business strategy
• Supporting our continuous improvement activity, defining best practices and sharing knowledge

You need to be this kind of person…

• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers
• Prepared to stick at something – we get nervous if someone has jumped from job to job
• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment

We always support colleagues to develop their skills. But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things...

• Naturally, you will hold experience delivering projects using Waterfall and Agile as a Business Analyst either in a financial services organisation
• You have got to be comfortable producing and owning project documents
• We need you to have experience writing requirements
• In order to be fantastic in the role, you need to have experience of working on complex projects with tight deadlines and of varying size
• You have got to have experience in all stages of a project lifestyle


Diverse teams really are the best teams. We know that candidates (especially women, research tells us) may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box.  We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked.  So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not give it a whirl? Good luck!
