Is this your User Story?

As an Agile Senior Business Analyst, I want to work on a variety of the coolest and latest cutting edge technology or business projects, so that I am motivated to do the best work I can, be proud of the way I'm doing it and who I'm doing it for.

The Role

We're looking for an Agile Senior Business Analyst to join our Christchurch permanent team. You'll work for a variety of customers on a diverse range of projects. We are methodology and tool agnostic so you will be exposed to a broad range of opportunities.  We're looking for someone who can be adaptable as you could find yourself working in a traditional or Prince 2 environment occasionally.  You'll be able to use many, if not all, of your business analysis techniques to help our clients' projects succeed. Many of our people join us not only for the variety but also to develop their consulting skills. You'll be a trusted advisor, drawing on your breadth of experience to provide advice and guidance to our customers. 

You will be well supported by our excellent Capability Framework. We have regular in-house mentoring and learning opportunities.

Specifically, we're looking for someone who is:

  • an Agile expert – you must have solid experience with Agile behaviours and approaches
  • proven to be committed to solving business problems wherever they occur in the business
  • adaptable to the various processes used in organisations to arrive at the successful delivery of the investment benefits and organisational objectives
  • a demonstrated leader through influence, facilitation and communication
  • unashamedly business oriented – talking comfortably with the business executive, management and finance team, operational end users and with the technical project team
  • the keeper of the requirements –are they communicated, understood, designed, built, tested, still relevant, managed and maintained?
  • knowledgeable about business models, finances and investment and procurement
  • goal oriented – are we achieving the right goal, on target, advancing towards it and monitoring if we are there yet?

What it means to be a Qual IT Business Analyst:
Qual IT is in the business of providing high quality business analysts who are innovative thinkers to our clients.  You'll mostly be working onsite with our clients as a professional business analyst representing Qual IT. And that means you need to be confident in your ability to be pragmatic, ask the right questions and raise risks with the right people. You need to be able to "talk the business analyst talk", while also being customer and solution focused, with outstanding communication skills and the ability to quickly build solid business relationships.

Why work for us?
In addition to joining a team of people who are as passionate about the work they do as you are, you'll enjoy a diverse and interesting career.  We're dedicated to growing and challenging our people - be it moving into a Lead Business Analyst or an Analyst Tester role or crossing over into Consultancy Services. We've got the tools, training and mentors to get you there with our world class Capability Framework.

At Qual IT, we know we're only as good as the people that work for us, so we really value and support our staff. You can look forward to a competitive salary, a smartphone, medical insurance, and discounted banking arrangements.
