"The scale here is huge; the ask is often complex and the context unique"
We're looking to add four Business Analysts to our team. You'll perform core BA functions on a critical and high profile project, directly related to our ongoing covid-19 response.
The pandemic means that accessible, robust digital products and services have never been more important to our users, or to dedicated DWP colleagues working to support them.
We're the UK's largest government department, and we're taking on a generational transformation of government products, services and ways of working. It is complex, unique challenging and driven by an extraordinary purpose - lifting people out of poverty and helping people into work.
We work across a mixed economy of new, legacy and hybrid systems, so we'll need you to be adaptable and able to develop and deliver a hybrid approach. Our disciplined digital teams are leveraging cutting edge technology, thinking and user centric design to optimise products and services used by 22 million people and 110,000 DWP colleagues and agents.
What skills, knowledge and experience are we looking for?
Applying Agile principles to iteratively deliver increments of value
Eliciting and defining epics, user stories & acceptance criteria then collaboratively supporting the prioritisation of the backlog
Facilitating workshops, interviews and document analysis, as well as working closely with User Researchers in order elicit needs and develop a shared understanding of current processes
Undertaking investigative work to identify gaps, potential waste and suggest improvements
Appling and monitoring appropriate use of modelling and analysis tools, methods and standards required
Building strong relationships with stakeholders, taking into account individual views and ideas and tailoring the approachWe don't care what industry or path you have taken to build the skills you have, we just need you to show us you have what it takes.
For your best chance to land an interview (where you can really show us what you're all about), tailor and structure your application to address the above essential criteria. Just submitting your CV/employment history won't give us the detail we need to assess your application effectively.
You'll work on our Data and Analytics team
The objective for the Data and Analytics team is to focus on knowledge transfer, transparency, agile, iterative ways of working to support fast paced delivery in a dynamic environment providing best in class services and continually improving them.
You'll support your team in delivering consistent products with common capabilities, features, and design that meet users' needs.
The technologies will be shared and able to collect data about use, user experience and performance in a level of detail that was previously impossible. To do this, we will build-in reuse and consistency, rather than reinventing and duplicating products and features.
