On a typical day you’ll be gathering and documenting business requirements in a way that shows you have a thorough understanding of what’s best for our customers and best for the business, translating the information you’ve collected into Business Requirements documentation using a variety of techniques including user stories, diagrams and process documents.
You’ll be involved in the full lifecycle of projects from start to finish, making sure communication is clear, governance is consistent and projects are seen right through to sign off. Building relationships will be a key part of the role because you’ll be managing all levels of stakeholder from every area of the business, facilitating workshops and running meetings to drive the changes through in the agreed timescales
Ultimately, the business will be relying on you and your team to make sure the solutions we deliver are practical, achievable, cost effective and meet our business and strategic objectives.
Along with strong analytical and problem solving skills, you’ll also have the ability to rip an idea to bits and find every conceivable thing that could potentially go wrong with it. You’ll be able to recognise the difference between what stakeholders want versus what the business needs and have the ability to communicate those differences constructively to your colleagues.
You’ll need to be familiar with project management methodologies like Prince 2, experienced in the full project lifecycle and used to working with IT systems and applications. A naturally inquisitive and questioning nature will be useful too, as well as an ability to work independently and a willingness to share information.
