About the role

As the Senior Business Analyst you will work primarily with the Data, Finance and Actuarial teams on strategic projects, small changes, support tickets and process improvements. You will also be expected to liaise with other business units (e.g. Legal and Compliance) and support their requirements. The role will predominately be based in London, with the occasional travel to Reigate.

You will be experienced in working within an Agile change environment and with different Agile frameworks and/or methodologies e.g. SCRUM, Kanban, SAFe.

You will have excellent analytical and communication skills and have at your disposal a wide range of tools and techniques to help elicit functional and non-functional requirements and articulate these into VSTS backlogs. Over time you will also look to share this knowledge within the Business Analysis community.

You will have a good overall knowledge of Regulatory, Data, Financial and IT domains and be comfortable discussing technical aspects with the teams.

You will be experienced and confident in working with data, with the ability to gather and manage information from a variety of sources, analyse and interpret the data and importantly, be able to present and visualise information in ways that people can easily understand.

You will have strong experience in driving business process (i.e. month-end, financial valuation) improvements within data, commercial and financial teams.
