Would you believe it! We have yet another new opportunity for a Business Analyst to join our client’s busy Front Office Systems team as a Systems Analyst / Technical Business Analyst.

I’m seriously interested in speaking to anyone with these skills, so if you’re ready to step up to the mark in a dynamic, busy and very friendly team or you’re in a similar role right now then give me a call 01312267331 and I’ll tell you all about what’s on offer for you.

Some of you may still be unsure if this is right for you so here’s some more information to help you decide. If you’re still unsure give me a call anyway. It’s always good to talk. Here’s the boring stuff:

In this role you will use your strong analysis and relationship building skills to identify the changing needs of the business, propose solutions to those needs, and ensure the successful deployment of those solutions into the live environment. This role requires in-depth knowledge of specialist investment industry software applications (such as Charles River / Thinkfolio etc.) as well as a strong understanding of front office investment products and asset classes. Your exceptional investigation skills will identify opportunities for both process re-design and new systems implementation; you will assess the impact of potential changes and then work with 3rd party suppliers and internal IT functions to ensure successful delivery and implementation. Our client is looking for the following skills:

What you’ll need to flourish in this role:
- Extensive Business and Systems Analysis experience
- Investment / Asset Management experience (including Fixed Income and Equities Securities)
- Front office experience (including full trade lifecycle and order management system)
- Proven design, implementation, and deployment experience.
- Strong analytical and problem solving skills
- Excellent communication skills
- Experienced at facilitating workshops / training / presentations

I know this is an initial 6 months fixed term contract and I can’t promise it’ll go longer than this, but if previous experience is anything to go by there’s a fair chance you could go permanent at some point. The client’s busy, the work’s interesting and the team are great to work with. What are you waiting for? Apply now please.
