Business Analyst - Down

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 County Down

County Down is situated on the south-eastern side of Northern Ireland, and at its northern point contains parts of the capital city Belfast. It borders County Antrim to its north and County Armagh to its east, and to the west and south is the Irish Sea. It also shares a border with Lough in Eire. Its major towns and cities, apart from Belfast, are Newry, Bangor, Dundonald, Newtownwards, Holywood, banbridge and Downpatrick. To the east of the county is the huge Strangford Lough, where the Irish Sea is almost cut off to form a lake, except for a small inlet at Portaferry.

County Down is a decent place to look for Business Analyst work. With cities like Belfast and Newry within its borders, as well as the affluent Bangor, there is always going to be a need to logistics, supply chain and procurement management.
