Job Purpose

Looking to utilise your Digital and Business Analyst skills in a job that makes a difference to millions of children ever year?

We have an exciting opportunity for an Agile Business Analyst to join our Digital Products Team as we launch our brand new fundraising platform and continue to migrate our donor experience site (and other digital products) into the new platform.

Youll be essential in leading the creation of World Vision UK business and stakeholder requirements, using technical knowledge and language to translate those requirements into user stories for our World Vision International developers.

About you:

  • You’re excellent at managing relationships and facilitating conversations with a variety of stakeholders (both face-to-face and remotely), helping to create an environment that fosters collaboration in order to extract the business requirements.

  • You’re quick to understand the specifics and able to communicate the detail of what is being asked (by the business), in the context of the wider development picture and overall aims of the platform.

  • You’re experienced in: writing User Stories, creating process flows and creating wireframes in order to communicate the business needs as specific developer tasks.

  • You’re at your best operating both side of the fence - understanding the detail and nuance, in order to identify opportunities within the digital development process to maximise the output of the developers.

  • You have a proven ability to analyse a broad range of information verbal and written, draw conclusions and identify recommendation actions.

  • You’re able to provide guidance on what to build when, to release as much value as possible as early as possible

  • You’re passionate about digital technology and proactively keep up to date with trends and digital best practice, highlighting ideas and ways we could do things better.

  • You have a broad overall knowledge and awareness of IT and IT systems.

  • You’re someone who often finds an alternative way to make something work or improve processes.

All applicants must be willing to work within a Christian framework and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

In addition to the salary offered, we offer good benefits including pension, generous holiday entitlement and free parking
