Our technology team are looking for business analysts to join them to work collaboratively across the wider technology team. You’ll work with our users to understand their business needs, capturing and documenting their requirements in order to translate these into new product features which will exceed user’s expectations.

In this role, you’ll actively seek out new ways to do things and constantly be looking to improve the ways we work, and your own learning will be a key motivator for you. You’ll also have a passion for exploring new technologies and seeing how these can be used to create value in our product.

A bit about you:
You’re happiest when taking full ownership of the work you’re doing and are confident in making decisions. You’re passionate about the work you do and the value you add to the team.

Your friends would probably describe you as ‘the determined one’ or the person with the tenacity to find the answer to complex problems. You’ll be happiest when tinkering with new technologies and finding betters ways to deliver phenomenal outcomes, and you’re not afraid to challenge the status quo in order to overcome obstacles.

You'll love to work with smart people as part of a cross-functional team and will always support and encourage them to be their best. You know there is almost always a better way of doing things even if it can't be delivered immediately. You want to be part of a collaborative culture where you feel empowered to take ownership of the work you do to deliver the best solutions, but always know you’ll never be left alone.

We’ve always placed more importance on cultural alignment than skills, but we’d love for you to have the following:
                    Practical knowledge of user-centred design.
                    Experience of using SCRUM or Kanban methodologies within an agile environment.
                    Excellent communication skills - both verbal and written. As you will be client facing we need you to be completely comfortable representing our culture and values.
                    A love of solving problems and building solutions.
                    Ideally some experience of financial services technology
                    An understanding of web-based technologies, complex data and transactions.

A bit about us:
Our purpose at Nucleus is to transform financial services and create better outcomes for clients and their advisers. It is this purpose that drives everything we do and differentiates us. We know it’s not just about what we do but how we do it. How we interact is guided entirely by our four values - authentic, accountable, energetic and inspiring.

Nucleus’ culture is something our people believe sets us apart from other places they’ve worked. Our most recent ‘Our Nucleus’ survey showed 92% of us are proud to be here and believe we can make a difference in our role. This short film gives you an insight into what it is like to work with us.

It’s a fast paced, challenging and always changing environment but one where we believe you will get the chance to fulfil your potential and do work that matters. All while being an important addition to a close-knit team you’ll feel a part of right from the start.

We're committed to offering an inclusive and diverse workplace and it's really important to us to ensure there is no unconscious bias when reviewing your application and for this reason we have moved to an anonymised application form. Your application form and CV will be screened to ensure you have the skills and experience required for the role, but our hiring managers will only have access to the application form and will therefore base their decision to invite you to interview on this alone. It's therefore really important for you to answer the questions as best you can, showcasing your strengths and the reasons why we would want to meet with you.

What happens after I apply?
We know how frustrating recruitment processes can be from a candidate point of view and we also know it doesn’t have to be that way. We will keep you in the loop along the way and will always get back to you to let you know the outcome of your application.
