We are looking for an experienced and skilled Business Analyst to play an important role in our ambitious digital transformation programme for Adult Social Care, focussing particularly on the Funding Reform.

The introduction of the charging reform, which includes a cap on the cost of care and a more generous means test, will result in an increase in demand for financial assessments and will require local authorities to upgrade and develop new business processes and IT systems to record and maintain care accounts.

You will be required to carry out a combination of process analysis, requirements gathering, and business re-engineering to translate requirements into effective and efficient solutions and operating models which will deliver an excellent customer experience.

As well as being an excellent oral and digital communicator, you will demonstrate problem solving and analytical skills, be unafraid to challenge constructively and act as a critical friend in order to achieve solutions that are fit for purpose.

Equally comfortable working within a multi-disciplinary team as well as by yourself, you will be self-motivated and committed to developing strong working relationships will colleagues at all levels across the organisation.

You will play a significant role in the journey from current to future business models, actively involved in embedding business change, you will consider operational impact as well as overall feasibility.

You will be expected to work with a number of different stakeholders and to adapt procedures and methodologies to suit unique scenarios.

If you have a background of providing business analysis, have strong business modelling skills, are capable of seeing the big picture and delivering at pace we would very much like to hear from you!

This is 12 month fixed term post

The Council is committed to investing in the talent and wellbeing of our staff and can offer a generous annual leave allowance, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, comprehensive Health & Wellbeing initiatives and a reward package which recognises your contribution. We can offer flexible working practices, community engagement and volunteer activities and, as part of our commitment to you, promote continuous Learning & Development. In addition we also offer a growing range of discounts, rewards and savings.

At the moment due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some of our staff are working remotely from home but a return to a combination of working remotely and physically from the Council’s offices is anticipated in the near future.

As a new starter, your contractual location will be the designated council office for your team. Your working arrangements will vary according to your service and role, and the current Government guidance. For many roles, there will be more opportunities in the future for remote and hybrid working. However, this comes with the expectation that, as workplaces open up, there is likely to be an ongoing and occasional requirement to attend the workplace.
