Job Ref:

Business Analyst required to join my Bolton based client and support them in a ground up review of the core operating applications, architecture and project delivery methodologies, as part of the strategic project team, alongside daily stakeholder management as part of BAU.

The review will include fulfilment options analysis; internal development costing, tender exercises and solution assessment but also includes a complete review of project management and delivery approaches with a heavy emphasis on the use of Agile techniques as a future standard. It would therefore be preferred that candidates have a background in both waterfall and Agile techniques (noting that a BA who has just worked in an informal delivery environment or read an Agile book is insufficient, an individual who has worked in a Scrum or other specific methodology environment, has the strength to influence the incumbent team and advise on how Agile could be adopted is required).
