Business Analyst - Aldershot

Business Analyst Jobs

Wherever there are processes taking place in a business, there are expenditures, turnovers and opportunities that can all be optimized in favour of the company performing them. Often, the people doing the work are not best placed to spot these savings – which is why business analysts are such an important addition to the team. They work alongside project managers and assess the business model in use on an ongoing basis, returning with regular reports on every aspect of the workflow, so that positive intervention can be carried out.

Large companies need a whole team of business analysts, either working on a by-site basis or focusing on a small number of processes, in which case it is the manager who decides what actions to take to avoid unforeseen conflicts. In smaller companies, however, the business analyst could well work solo and not only assessing the situation on the ground but also suggesting remedial measures.

The skills required

Your key skill will be to monitor, analyse and interpret business data as it comes from the team you are assigned to. You need a precise, methodical mindset that can spot trends, outliers and emerging movements and take the appropriate action. You will therefore must be the kind of person who understands the inner workings of Excel or similar software packages that can collate, image and present data.

With so many business models competing at the moment, experience in the one that is in use at the company is of enormous benefit, as experience in analyzing traditional projects may count for little in a company that practices agile processes, for example. Similarly, experience in the same sector will be of use as each ecosystem has its own qualities that will not necessarily carry over. You need to be able to demonstrate genuine, measurable gains brought to a company through your actions.

Business Analyst Jobs in Aldershot

Aldershot is a town that has grown up around the British army. It was a small village surrounded by barely useable land until the Crimean War, when a military base was located there. Within a few years the population had exploded from less than a thousand to around 16,000, which is about half its current population. It is known as the home of the British Army, and several regiments are based there.

The Hampshire town is located about 30 miles (50 km) south west of the centre of London, 7 miles (12 km) west of Guildford and 16 miles (26 km) south east of Reading. It is at the centre of a large conurbation that takes in Farnborough, Farnham, Fleet and Camberley, and together the population is close to a quarter of a million. Immediately to the north of Aldershot is Farnborough, home of one of the UK’s most important air shows, which is both a trade fair for military and civilian aircraft and a public spectacle.

While Aldershot is dominated culturally and, to some extent, geographically by the barracks, there is a static population living in the town and its adjacent neighbours, and there is a diverse range of industry in the area. Logistics and Supply chain professionals looking for Business Analyst work should therefore find rich pickings in Aldershot. It’s well connected to the transport network, with the M3 passing to its north and a comprehensive rails service. And failing that, you might be able to hitch-hike on a tank.
