Want to work on one of the largest business transformations on the South Coast? Are you a solutions focused individual with great relationship building skills and an analytical mind? This is the role for you!
A large engineering and technology company based on the South Coast are looking for a Principal or Senior Requirements Analyst. The role is part of a new team working on their transformation project which is one of the largest in the area.
The purpose of the role is to lead the development of requirements suitable to support acquisition, working as part of programme or project teams, in accordance with the company's internal Requirements Management (RM) Methodology. Support the continuous improvement of the RM Methodology by feeding back and implementing lessions learned from application.
The role will require interaction with a diverse range of stakeholders, and to identify, assess and resolve complex issues and interdependencies. The Requirements Analyst must exhibit a mind-set that reflects appreciation of the "bigger picture" such that when working on a specific programme or project, they nonetheless consider the broader perspective and potential impacts or dependencies for related programmes/projects or the enterprise as a whole.
The role will be responsible for planning work packages as part of broader programme and project plans, sometimes with significant ambiguity. Resolving conflicts arising from development or implementation of the plan will be an important responsibility.
The role is not operational; changes and issues will need to be managed in line with the overall goals and guidance/direction provided by the Head of EA and Requirements and the relevant programme or project managers.
* Develop RM plans tailored to the needs of individual programmes or projects but in accordance with the RM Methodology to ensure a consistent, coherent and effective approach
* Lead the implementation of RM strategies/plans in programmes or projects as allocated to ensure effective application of the desired approach
* Lead the effort to ensure solution-level requirements for a programme or project are defined and clearly articulated and are complete, coherent, concise, comprehensible, traceable, feasible, unambiguous, and verifiable
* Lead the effort to ensure that solution-level requirements align with the defined business needs (including affordability, safety, value and environmental considerations) so that the programme outcomes and/or project outputs can be delivered
* Ensure that requirements are fully aligned to, contextualised by, and supported by relevant architectural products to ensure coherency, traceability and clear understanding
* Build relationships internally and externally to develop and maintain an understanding of trends, opportunities and threats in the market and related technologies to provide context for how the business will evolve over the next 10 years
* Support the development of other Requirements Analysts within the team, and related practitioners across the business through delivery of formal and informal training
* Support the continuous improvement of the RM Methodology, feeding back and implementing lessons learned from application to ensure the processes, tools and guidance continue to evolve and mature
