Our client is a global provider of technology systems and solutions across the entire insurance industry. They provide core technology solutions, distribution and trading capability, advanced analytics and solution delivery.

The company works with 8 of the top 10 UK insurers, 4 of the top 10 global insurers and over 40% of UK brokers. Our client's broking technology processes transactions worth over GBP5 billion gross written premium and their teams are responsible for developing and delivering some of the most cutting edge software in the insurance market. By helping their customers to define their requirements, our client maps the journey and builds the solution.

Our client is now looking for a talented Business Consultant to join their Business Consultancy Team in Customer Solutions, based in their Halifax office.

What being the Business Consultant will involve:

As the Business Consultant, your role will be the key interface with internal and external customers. Using your extensive business consultancy experience, you will gather and translate requirements into clear functional specifications and/or business change requirements. You will provide fee-earning consultancy and services surrounding our client's products.

Working on various projects as the lead point of contact, often based from customer sites, you will work closely with customers and the project management team. From defining the implementation and development scope of the project through to advising on business priorities, you will highlight any impacts on the overall implementation plan. You will guide members of the Business Consultancy Team, providing knowledge and expertise to both internal and external customers as well as providing leadership and mentoring to the Business Analysts, developing them to achieve their potential.

Based from our client's Halifax offices, there will be travel across the UK with ad hoc requirements to undertake international travel.

What experience our client is looking for from you:

It is essential that you have knowledge of the Insurance industry and its processes and procedures gained through direct experience. The successful candidate will come with proven experience as an IT Business Analyst that has worked in a lead role. Leadership and task management experience together with demonstrable experience of working in a field consultancy capacity for external customers and delivery of complex solutions is also required. You must be confident and have the ability to speak to all levels of stakeholders. Strong familiarity with project planning and governance tools is expected and it is desirable to have BCS/ISEP qualification but not essential as our client will invest in in-house and external training. Our client would also like you to have experience in pricing/quotes and e-commerce but this is desirable.

A career with our client:

Our client believes the most valuable asset for any business is the people it employs. It is crucial therefore to employ and invest in the best. The company has a strong, clear vision - to be the leading provider of insurance technology software - and our client's values describe what makes them unique, and captures the spirit that runs through everything they do. The Business Consultant plays a crucial role in delivering our vision and values through you, your team and the business.
