Function: Engineering

This BA role will operate within the Engineering function, providing analysis and design skills. Specifically, the role will involve taking ownership of the definition and delivery of user requirements for one or more of our present and future range of significant customer delivery projects on the account.
It will also involve a significant amount of engagement with project colleagues and end customers to ensure that the resultant deliveries are fit for their intended purpose.

Critically evaluate information gathered from multiple sources, reconcile conflicts, decompose high-level information into details, abstract up from low-level information to a general understanding, and distinguish user requests from the underlying true needs.

Proactively communicate and collaborate with external and internal customers to assess information needs and functional requirements and document these in suitable artefacts, e.g. functional requirements, Use Cases, GUI, Screen and Interface designs.

Display strong analytical and product management skills to interpret customer business needs and translate them into application and operational requirements.
