IT Business & Systems Analyst - Warehouse and Logistics

  • Weighbridge Rd, Shirebrook, Mansfield NG20, UK
  • Full-time

Company Description

Frasers Group are currently looking for a Business and Systems Analyst to join our growing IT function and work as part of an enthusiastic, motivated, and delivery focused agile team.  We started as a small store in Maidenhead in 1982 and from there, grew to become a global powerhouse.  We believe the higher the risk, the greater the reward.  We’ve never been afraid to strive forward and change the way the industry operates, diversifying our portfolio and elevating stores.  We’re not sitting back – there’s no room for hesitation.  As a PLC with a £4 billion turnover, this opportunity to grow your career in a fast paced and dynamic environment is one for the bold. 

Job Description

The Business and Systems Analyst (BSA) role is a key combination of Agile product ownership, traditional business analysis and requirements engineering.

The BSA will work with our internal and external stakeholders in our Warehouse Development team to help elicit and define requirements for our development teams. The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in helping to turn the aspirations of our stakeholders into meaningful increments of work which our development teams can deliver.

The BSA will have strong experience of helping define the scope of projects and defining solution requirements.To do this effectively, you will work with others to achieve a shared understanding of the problems to be solved as well as defining intended solutions in the form of clear requirements.

To be successful in this role, we need someone who is extremely proactive, curious and has strong relationship building skills. Our environment is extremely fast paced with frequent pivots in priority, so it’ll be key to demonstrate a laser-focused approach to prioritising time on the most important items that have the highest business value.

The day to day of the role will involve helping business stakeholders to articulate the value of their ideas, supporting the production of lightweight business cases, collaboratively documenting the highest priority ideas with the business and the development team in the form of a backlog.

Whilst we are not fundamentally using the Scrum framework, experience of product ownership in a Scrum environment would be hugely advantageous as many of the behaviours expected from a Product Owner will be beneficial in our context.

The successful candidate will have their sleeves rolled up from day one and be keen to focus the business stakeholders and development teams on the true value to be delivered.
