Job Description

Can you cut through the noise to understand what’s really going on? Build the kind of relationships with stakeholders that mean you understand what they need better than they do? And then, work with technical experts to turn that understanding of the problem (or the opportunity) into the right solution?

As a Business Analyst you will be working across a wide range of technology projects ensuring that we fully understand exactly what is needed to deliver real business value. You will be engaging with stakeholders from across the charity to understand what it is they are trying to achieve and what they need to get there. And, when it comes to rolling out the change, you will be involved in making sure that we have everything in place to make it a success.

About the Team

You will be part of a small but perfectly formed team focussed on delivering technology solutions, services, systems and projects within our Technology Roadmap. You will work with our IT, Digital Development and Salesforce teams as well as colleagues from across the charity to drive forward an ambitious new strategy.

About you

You will be a team player who has previous experience of working as a Business Analyst on Technology and Digital projects. You will be experienced in gathering interpreting and using data to generate requirements and actionable steps to deliver projects and improve systems and processes. You will be used to working across a range of stakeholders at all levels and be able to build trust quickly and effectively.

The ideal candidate will also:

  • Have previous experience working in Agile teams translating requirements into user stories or specifications
  • Take a structured and logical approach to problem solving
  • Have excellent stakeholder engagement and management skills
  • Understand what is needed to support adoption and embed new ways of working
  • Be a great communicator able to clearly articulate messages to a variety of audiences

About the Charity

Every day brings new challenges at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Every day, over 600 seriously ill children from across the UK arrive for life-changing treatments. Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. And every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. Without donations, Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity can’t help fund ground-breaking research, advanced equipment, child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities. Our staff help to raise these vital funds for the hospital. A better future for seriously ill children starts with you.

Recently awarded with a ‘Best Companies 2-star accreditation' and placed number 17 on the 2019 Sunday Times Best 100 Not-for-Profit Companies list - we offer a range of attractive benefits including; a flexible approach to working, 30 days holiday, life assurance, enhanced employer pension contributions, and a discounted season ticket loan.

Our Commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We recognise that people from some backgrounds are under-represented in our workforce and across the wider Charity sector. In April 2021 we launched our ambitious three-year EDI strategy committing to becoming a more inclusive workforce, reflecting the diverse communities that we work with and for and demonstrating this through all our areas of work.

A more diverse workforce will enable us to deliver even more impact and we particularly encourage applications from communities which are under-represented in the charity. This includes people from Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority backgrounds, people with a disability, people who are LGBT+ or who are from less advantaged socioeconomic groups.

Further information on our EDI strategy can be found on our website.

Our approach to hybrid working

This role is based in our Central London office (WC1N, opposite Russell Square underground) with the option to work remotely up to three days a week.
