Are you starting to think about your next exciting career move in IT? If so, we may be able to turn that desire into reality with our Junior IT Business Analyst opportunity.
We are a key element in the successful growth and expansion of the Wessex Water Group across both our regulated, retail and commercial companies.
This role offers a hybrid of office and home working (up to two days at home and three days in the office). However, government guidelines will take precedence.
The role
As the Junior IT Business Analyst, you will get to work on putting your analytical and communications skills to good use by working on both small and large scale projects that will support the development and/or delivery of a solution that meets business objectives and enables business benefits to be realised.
Working closely with your fellow IT business analysts and IT projects teams, you'll work with a range of customers to identify and document business processes and requirements, both at a high level and in detail, as well as determining their priority.
Additionally, your responsibilities will include:

collaborating with business stakeholders and evaluating their requests to determine feasibility
completing analysis tasks on IT projects, PowerApps and Minor Changes
eliciting, documenting, validating and prioritising complex business requirements (functional and non-functional) using a range of analysis tools and methods
documenting "as is" and "to be" processes
working collaboratively with the project team throughout the project lifecycle to ensure requirements are understood and delivered
ensuring traceability of requirements from source to delivery
supporting vendor selections as appropriate
managing stakeholders throughout the lifecycle of the project

What do I need?
To really flourish in this role, you should have some experience of business analysis, specifically:

experience documenting business processes ("as is" and "to be") or business process improvements using Visio
the ability to demonstrate you have good analysis skills
the ability to learn quickly when facing new problems and digest complex business problems with ease
experience documenting business requirements
an understanding and knowledge of the stages of the IT Project lifecycle
an understanding of and experience in waterfall and agile methodologies
experience confidently facilitating workshops or problem solving meetings with several stakeholders
experience in User Acceptance Testing
experience training new users in the use of IT systems

You will also be confident and have excellent communication skills (written and verbal) and be comfortable dealing with stakeholders at all levels too. Good working relationships are key to this role, and you will be able to build effective relationships with all your customers and colleagues.
This is a real development opportunity for someone who is looking to progress their career and develop into a Business Analyst. We're really keen for someone to come in who is willing to roll up their sleeves up and get stuck in, while also having a passion for learning and developing their skills.
What we offer?

Competitive salary
24 days annual leave, increasing with each year of service up to 28 days
Defined contribution pension scheme
Life assurance - up to four times your salary
Gymflex scheme
