Senior Business Analyst
The best thing about this role is the integral part you'll play in solving problems and working with us to develop the best solutions for the good of our customers and the business. You’ll be confident in developing strong relationships with users and third parties alike, and work with them to deliver the best outcomes.
In this role you'll find that your day is varied, managing and prioritising backlog items in an agile environment, as part of a fast-paced team. You’ll actively seek out new ways to do things and constantly be looking to improve the ways we work. You’ll also have a passion for exploring new technologies and seeing how these can be used to create value in our product.
Your own learning will be a key motivator for you as well as supporting and mentoring other members of the team.
A bit about you:
Your friends would probably describe you as ‘inquisitive one’. This is an important role and you will be keen to ask the right questions to identify problems and take accountability for finding the right solutions. We need you to have the commercial and technical know-how to make an immediate impact.
You will be very organised and have the ability to manage your own time effectively. You’ll also have exceptional communication skills, both verbal and written. As you will be client facing, we need you to be completely comfortable representing our culture and values.
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.
Smaller teams, a flat structure, constantly learning, being challenged, having your own chunk of responsibility and being trusted to make it happen describe in a nutshell the environment you really thrive in. You want to be part of a collaborative culture where you feel empowered but always know you’ll never be left alone.
We have always placed more importance on cultural alignment above technical ability, but we’d really like you to have:
• Practical knowledge of user-centred design.
• Experience of using SCRUM or Kanban methodologies within an agile environment.
• Excellent communication skills - both verbal and written.
• 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.
• Experience of taking a product from an idea to delivery.
• Ability to lead workshops with 3rd parties
• Strong background in data analysis and manipulation
• Passion about delivering a solid user experience
It would be great if you have:
• Exposure to the platform and/or asset management industry
• Exposure to typical adviser focussed financial planning tools such as cashflow modellers, risk profilers etc.
• Experience of api integration projects with external 3rd parties

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.
