Business Analyst

ISS - Corporate Information Systems
Salary:   £34,804 to £40,322
Closing Date:   Sunday 27 October 2019
Interview Date:   Friday 15 November 2019
Reference:  A2831

We are looking for an innovative and enthusiastic Business Analyst to join Corporate Information Systems to help gather, analyse, and map business processes before writing precise requirements that systems analysts can develop effective solutions against. These requirements will make up the high value features that are needed to develop LUSI (Lancaster University Student Information), the sector leading in-house Student Records system used by Lancaster University.

LUSI is undergoing significant redevelopment from a Windows Forms suite of modules to a modern, responsive, dynamic web application and API underpinned by existing SQL Server databases. It interfaces with many other systems and supports key University business processes.

Teams within Corporate Information Systems work in a purpose-built computer centre and have a strong focus on innovation, continuous improvement and staff development.  You will primarily focus on process improvement with regard to the further development of LUSI, initially working on the Postgraduate Admissions System, as well as a variety of other web-based and desktop systems, contributing to our exciting “Digital Lancaster” plans to maximise the opportunity for the exploitation of digital technologies.

Some experience in process improvement would be beneficial, specifically in the elicitation of business requirements, and the ability to envisage a now and future business model. You must be confident in dealing with stakeholders, at all levels, within the institution and be able to promote culture change when approaching solutions. Some experience in process modelling would be advantageous, as would experience of working within an Agile environment. 

You must have enthusiasm and a demonstrated capability for problem solving, developing new competencies, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and work well in a team. 

This is a full time, 1 year fixed term role.

If you would like further information and an opportunity to discuss the role, please contact Byron Ellershaw, Senior Business Analyst, Corporate Information Systems on +44 (0)1524 510128.

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
