Agile Business Analyst
Location: Leatherhead, Surrey
Your future duties and responsibilities:
As a Business Analyst your role will involve gathering requirements for changes to CMS, the CPS case management system built and supported by our client. CMS is a large and complex legacy system requiring changes due to evolving work processes and legislative change.
CPS business analysts will produce high level requirements and the role will involve taking ownership of a subset of those requirements and liaising with the customer to produce a detailed user requirements document. This will involve face to face meetings with CPS analysts and attending workshops with practitioners and administrative staff. The analyst will liaise with technical teams on the project, and be responsible for checking the existing functional specification, in order to identify any potential problems and issues while developing the detailed requirements. Following agreement to implement the requirements, the role will involve updating the functional specification to include the changes and identify any logical data changes required to support them.
CMS is in the process of transitioning from a waterfall to an agile project, and so flexibility with regards to processes is required.
Required qualifications to be successful in this role:
In order to be successful in the role of Business Analyst, you will need to have demonstrable experience of providing business analysis capability within a multi-functional agile team, working in a structured agile approach to product development. You'll also have experience of producing and managing a backlog of clearly defined user stories, NFRs and acceptance criteria using BDD in an agile tool (such as Jira) through all stages of agile development.
You should have a track record of playing a leading role in discovery/inception and ensuring effective collaboration between business experts, user researchers, user experience designers and technical team members. You will have good experience of using a range of analysis and modelling techniques.
