Driving organisational success is what you love about business analysis – creating opportunities, driving efficiencies, having an impact on the bottom line. But what if the bottom line was something more? What if your role could help to protect UK lives – all 63.7 million of them?

That’s the reality of life as a Business Analyst with MI5. For us, technology is everything. It underpins every aspect of our work and, in most cases, we wouldn’t be able to do our job without it. That means you can expect to take on some interesting, highly complex challenges that will stretch your analytical and problem solving skills to the full. Our business needs are far from conventional, and the same will need to go for the solutions you develop.

It’s because business analysis is so integral to our success that we’ll offer you exceptional career development opportunities, including ongoing training and the chance to gain industry qualifications.

A proven track record in business analysis across IT and non-IT projects is essential, and it’s likely you’ll come from a similarly large organisation. Essentially, you’ll be the bridge between our IT team and the wider business, so gravitas, poise and a natural ability to influence others are all a must. We’ll also need to see:

  • The ability to take part in large-scale engagements
  • Experience of business process improvement
  • A sound understanding of business process mapping and needs analysis
  • Strong business and benefits modelling skills
  • Change management experience                                                                

If you have all of that, this is an opportunity to take the lead on some truly unique projects – projects that won’t just have an impact on our organisation, but that will have an impact on the nation.
