Raytheon UK - Cyber & Intelligence

Digital business – LEAD BUSINESS ANALYST

Digital is the newest business in the Cyber and Intelligence Division of Raytheon UK. It delivers Cyber Security and Data Science advisory and technical services to clients through a number of Practices, each focused on a particular market sector and led by a highly experienced Practice Director. Raytheon UK Digital takes real care to understand the unique challenges face by individual clients, working in close partnership to reduce risk and realise opportunities through advisory and technical excellence, supported by an ecosystem of other trusted suppliers.

Each practice comprises highly skilled and experienced consultants, business analysts, security and technical specialists, grouped into bespoke teams to meet client requirements. Additional specialist staff can be drawn from other areas of Digital and the wider Cyber and Intelligence business. The Practice is responsible for identifying and developing new business opportunities in its sector, delivering advisory and technical services to meet identified client needs, and to also identify and pass on new business opportunities to other areas of the Cyber and Intelligence business.

As a Lead Business Analyst in Digital you will be highly skilled in business analysis techniques related to the exploitation of technology, and will have experience in one or more of our key areas of market sector focus. You will have proven experience in effectively leading analytic teams and managing multiple tasks against demanding timelines. You will also have an eye for detail and ensuring the highest standards of accuracy, presentation and quality in the work of your team. You will be an accomplished analyst in your own right. You will be comfortable with engaging clients at a technical and management level, production of analytic reports and products, and presenting findings in a manner that is accessible to non-experts in the field. Reporting to the practice Director through a senior Managing Consultant, you will routinely work leading part of the Business Analysis  group within the Practice, ensuring the consultancy teams are properly supported in their individual tasks and working alongside a mixed team of consultants, other analysts and technical staff to meet client-based outputs and deadlines.

Sector Focus

The Digital Practices will initially be focused on the UK Government sector (which includes Defence, other Whitehall Departments, agencies and in time is expected to include local government), Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) and Transport (which includes road, rail, sea and air infrastructure and businesses). As the Digital business develops it is expected that the number of Practices will increase and the scope of each Practice will be varied accordingly, depending on the identified potential in each sector.

We expect you to have an understanding of some aspects of the sectors described above, and experience of business and technical analysis best practice from previous relevant employment. You might have worked in a consultancy and will understand the common challenges that clients face, current trends and threats, and where generally the sectors are likely to grow. You will already have professional contacts in some areas and already have practical ideas of advisory opportunities which can be developed.

Location

The business will be centered primarily in London, with satellite offices in the West and Northwest of England, but you will be expected to travel frequently to client and other Raytheon sites across the country as required.
