The role will give you the autonomy to take the analytical lead on projects and will favour those with superb communication and influencing skills.
 
This will be a great role for an experienced and talented Business Analyst, who will enjoy taking on a high degree of personal responsibility for getting change initiatives all the way from concept stage through to a live implementation that delivers a high quality outcome.
