Business Analyst - Reporting

About the Role

Our client has a broad range of projects it wishes to deliver as part of its ICT Program of Work (POW) over the next two - three years. One of these is a strategic initiative currently underway to design and implement a new Adviser Platform (Calypso+) built upon Salesforce Financial Services Cloud.

Calypso+ involves implementing a new Client centric data model, all the capabilities an Adviser needs to efficiently and effectively deliver personalised service throughout the full Client lifecycle, as well as supporting efficient interactions and request with the BackOffice.

Calypso+ will potentially impact (through data migration) or provide the opportunity to replace, a significant number of reports currently produced across multiple systems and data sets. This role will be required to identify, analyse reports and make appropriate recommendations to rationalise, consolidate or migrate these reports. It will also play a key role in implementing these recommendations.

This role will work as part of the Projects Team and with the relevant implementation vendors to undertake required Business Analyst duties to ensure project outcomes are successfully delivered.
