Front Office Business Analyst - Investment Bank (London)
A leading Bank based in the City of London is currently seeking a Business Analyst to work across their Front Office IT Group.
This position would cover all areas across the Bank so it will be a diverse and varied position with a number of business critical projects (Front Office, Regulatory, Mifid II, ect).
Key tasks will involve improving business efficiency, process change and how to extract information from the business. Other tasks will include helping to develop the conceptual design and supply necessary information to Project Manager for the planning of authorised projects as well as contributing to the planning, execution and verification of Integration Testing. The manager also wanted to highlight that this is a strategic, long term hire with a real opportunity to progress within the company with an opportunity to step up into a more leadership focused position.
The Bank likes their Business Analysts to be business facing, with the ability to engage with various stakeholder groups, whilst having enough technical ability to turn requirements into functional specifications. Importantly though the team really needs a Business Analyst who can liaise with the business and understand what key stakeholders require whilst thinking “how can we make this work at a solution/application level”
Please note that this person doesn’t necessarily of had to come from a Front Office Investment Banking background and the managers are more interested in the core Business Analyst skills (producing high quality specifications, drive business process, new business efficiencies).
