Business Analyst / Project / Demand Manager / Systems Analyst


We have a brand-new and unique opportunity for a BA / PM / Demand Manager / Systems Analyst to work for our client in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. The ideal candidate will come from a BA / PM / Demand Manager / Systems Analyst background and will have some experience in a manufacturing environment.

As a BA / PM / Demand Manager / Systems Analyst you will talk to people in other areas of the business to develop forward-looking plans in specific project areas that will make a real difference to your colleagues, your customers, and the overall strategy. New projects will come up regularly (so you’ll never get bored!) and you’ll work with teams across the business to create workable solutions and project plans. You’ll focus on a number of projects at any one time, so it’s a combination of high-level BA / strategy / architecture / project management – and some hands-on work as required.

You’ll need a solid background in IT in order to understand the requirements of the projects, and you’ll get your hands dirty from time to time, but the main thing is for you to be comfortable taking the initiative, proactively building relationships with colleagues in other business areas so that you can get the appropriate teams in place for each project. It’s a large company but you’ll be joining a small elite department with links to many others – you’ll therefore be playing an important and visible role – one that will be immensely rewarding for the right person. You’ll learn something new every day.
