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.
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.

Staffordshire’s county town of Stafford is relatively small by county town standards, with its population of just over 50,000; in fact Stoke-on-Trent, Tamworth and Newcastle-under-Lyme are larger. That said, Stafford is at the centre of a cluster of towns whose populations total over 120,000. Stafford is located on the M6 and is about half way between Stoke-on-Trent and Birmingham, each of which is approximately 14 miles (22 km) distant.
The town’s history is varied and well documented to the fifth century, and the eleventh-century castle stands to this day. Stafford used to have a long tradition of shoemaking, which sadly died out in the latter 20th century. It was also a major railway hub until the reforms of the 1960s led to the closure of the Stafford & Uttoxeter Railway and the Shropshire Union Railway, and with them Stafford became a relatively normal through line between Crewe and Birmingham and London.
Occasionally, Business Analyst jobs become available in Stafford, as it is a relatively populous region and some major manufacturing plants are found there. The electrical engineering giant Alstrom, which makes huge electrical transformers, is in the middle of the town, and Bostik and Littleworth (diesel engines) have large sites here; there are also a few trading and industrial estates and a sizeable shopping centre. Being the county town, the public sector is a large employer, and Stafford also serves as a commuter town for the cities to the north and south.
Cast UK’s regional specialists can provide detailed information about the potential employers, the available job types and the average expected salary. We never stop working with clients and applicants from across the country, and are dedicated to filling each position with the best talent possible.
