Graduate Business Analyst
Business Analysts have a fundamental role in any strategic initiative, particularly those requiring systematic or operational development or enhancement. The Business Analyst’s core function is to work with stakeholders to define business requirements, translate these into functional specifications for technology and development teams, and help drive the implementation of required design and development.
Business Analysts assess existing frameworks and processes against required outcomes, for example as a result of new regulatory requirements or strategic product and market changes and determine the most effective pathways to achieve the desired end-states.
The key deliverables for a Business Analysis are typically:
- performing scope analysis and gap assessment;
- solution design and requirements creation;
- functional specification creation;
- process mapping;
- data analysis;
- providing expertise during implementation; and
- user testing design.
The scope of role for a Business Analyst is diverse and multi-faceted across regulatory change, strategic change, streamlining of existing processes, remediating breaks in processes, and end-to-end solutioning. Product and domain knowledge that is accumulated is often multi-functional across front-office, compliance & risk, operations and bank-wide infrastructure. Often, the Business Analyst will work closely with a project manager within a project team but may also be tasked with producing independent pieces of analysis and requirements.
