You'll join at the beginning of the project working as a Senior BA.

Some example responsibilities include:
  • Review the existing Business Requirements documentation and the current production system to identify and understand the required functionality, so that the impact of any functional changes to the existing systems are identified, documented and catered for.
  • Liaise with Business teams to identify and document new requirements related to the changes and translate into IT solutions where necessary.
  • Keep abreast of industry changes so that business needs can be anticipated and prompted
  • Ensure effective communication of requirements between users and developers (translating business requirements into user stories) during the project initiation phase by first producing vision and explanatory documents.
  • Work with the development team and users to produce an initial Product Backlog, writing epics and user stories with just enough detail to provide high level estimates for the project approval process.
  • Help come up with IT solutions for business requirements, and challenge business requirements when needed.
  • During the execution phase, working in an agile manner to refine the product backlog, adding acceptance criteria, so that the developer can successfully implement the stories.
  • Creating test plans and acceptance tests for PBIs and testing delivered software.
  • Communicate and train the business users in the new functionality provided in each of the multiple releases to enable UAT to be undertaken.
  • Take lead role in initial UAT defect review with users, explain differences between existing and new functionality, identify and record any defects and take central role in communication between users and developers for defect resolution, arranging direct contact where appropriate.
