What it's about

Can your analytical and consultative skills help us find the solutions to our problems?

At Cambridge Assessment English we are expanding our Business Process function. We are looking for creative Business Analysts to solicit, document and evaluate business requirements on a wide range of projects to deliver business process and system change initiatives, introducing improvements on a global scale.

What you'll be doing
Working within a large team, including Project Managers and other Business Analysts, whose focus is on mapping your solutions into our operations, your focus will include IT and Business change projects. This is a great chance to showcase your existing process modelling skills and identify the activities needed to transition to new ways of working. These roles are critical to our success; working to form a consensus opinion across diverse stakeholder groups, you will be able to help shape the requirements and strategic direction of project delivery. Influencing is key, as you challenge assumptions to ensure that the solution meets the needs, and business changes are adopted and embed within departments.

Those who are able to multitask between reconciling conflicts, translating high-level requirements, and distinguishing underlying true needs, will thrive in this exciting role, where no one day is the same. Ready to be one of a team of 'Subject Matter Experts' and ensure we deliver what the business needs, then we would like to hear from you.

What we're looking for

• Educated to degree level, or equivalent
• A business analysis qualification would be great, but not essential.

• Confident in process modelling and all the tools and their applications
• Not afraid to change the status quo - constructively and appropriately challenge what, why and how things are!
• Able to operate rationally - within a highly pressurised environment.
• Excellent communicator with analytical and consultative skills
• Able to carry out critical evaluation and constructively feedback on project deliverables.

• Substantial participation in IT and change projects in lead and influential roles.
• Experience in integrated people, process and technology change.
• Able to think outside the box and suggest creative solutions to problems.
• Able to quickly develop business knowledge at a strategic and process level.
• Experience of integration work and liaising with external technology providers.

In addition to a competitive salary, we offer a superb range of benefits:
  • Generous contributory pension
  • 28 days annual leave, plus bank holidays
  • Annual performance related bonus and increases (discretionary)
  • Enhanced maternity/paternity pay
  • Employee discount and cash back scheme at 2,500 retailers
  • Cycle scheme
  • Subsidised canteens
  • Support for professional qualifications

We know that diversity of thinking, backgrounds and approaches leads to innovation and creates an atmosphere where everyone's contribution is valued. As well as wanting to create diverse teams, we also value diversity in the way our people approach their work. Work/life balance is important to us at Cambridge Assessment and we offer our colleagues a range of flexible working options according to the needs of the business and the individual, so please let us know of any flexible working requirements when applying and we can see how we can support you.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 13/04/2019 and interviews will be held on 1 May 2019 .

If you're successful at interview stage we will ask you to undergo background screening (carried out by Credence Background Screening Ltd), to ensure that all information provided to us is accurate. We wish you all the very best with your application.
