Business Analyst

Reed Specialist Recruitment are looking for a Business Analyst to join their expanding team based in Raynes Park, South West London. 

The Role – what will you be doing? 

Our Business Analysts are the hub of our development and change processes. You’ll be involved in the entire lifecycle: not just in upfront requirement evolution, but in mapping and refining existing and desired operational processes, managing the software development process, managing procurement and relationships with 3rd party software and service providers to name but a few responsibilities. 

Most of our core systems are developed in house. You will be given ownership of products or parts of products, leading through requirement analysis, design, development, testing, deployment and live maintenance. You will manage a squad of one or more programming teams (consisting of developers, scrum master and testers) overseeing the introduction and refinement of complex, business-critical systems. 

We operate within an agile development environment, utilising facets of SCRUM, DSDM and ITIL. You will be responsible for owning a product backlog, communicating delivery against budgets in a fast-moving output focused environment with the freedom to drive real positive change. 

The Team – who are we and why are we recruiting? 

Our Company Strategy relies on investing heavily in Technology – which means new and exciting projects are always on the near-term horizon – and we know that the success of many of these will be driven by our Product Design Team. 

As such, we’re expanding the team to help us deliver effectively against these aims. There is an excellent spirit and unity in the current team, aided by a healthy work life balance – alongside a real desire to work together towards elegant high-value solutions. 

The Company – why join us?
