Led by an award-winning Chief Digital Transformation Officer and inspirational leadership team, we are now embarking on an ambitious programme of transformational change. Over the coming years, this digital transition will be an ever-developing programme supported by senior stakeholders both financially and strategically. Whilst we are already a highly successful organisation and business, the University will be a very different world in years to come and aspires to achieve levels of performance and digital delivery as yet unseen in the sector. All of this is underpinned by major construction and estate renewal, an exciting programme of work to add thousands of accommodation spaces, and a network replacement project to install the latest digital infrastructure as part of the journey towards a fully data-enabled organisation. 

We are moving to agile ways of working and need to take the organisation on the same journey; to be sector leading and to deliver a model of digital delivery fit for the coming years. As this programme gains momentum, we need to unpick our challenges and legacy systems and move towards meeting our potential.

As the Senior Business Analyst, you will be a key member of the Digital Engagement team,  working on a range of initiatives and projects across the University, you will be responsible for leading a team of 4 Business Analysts and building an effective Business Analysis practice. Your role will require you to work as the lead liaison between IT Services and key stakeholders within professional services divisions, schools and research units in order to elicit, analyse, communicate and validate requirements for changes to business processes, policies and information systems.

To be successful in this role, you will be able to demonstrate excellent oral and written communications skills, having the capability to convey complex, technical information to all levels of staff. You will have considerable experience in applying business analysis disciplines as well as the ability to manage time critical schedules combined with an excellent attention to detail. Ideally, you will also have an understanding of the higher education sector and knowledge of IT systems and processes that support the student lifecycle and beyond. 

Not only do we offer flexible and remote working, a vibrant atmosphere, use of our incredible facilities, benefits, and an amazing pension; but we are offering the opportunity to be part of a transformation that will see us set the benchmark for a model of digital delivery in the HE sector.
