Location: Kidlington but working across Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary

Fixed Term Contract/Secondment until 31st March 2022

We are looking to appoint a Business Analyst who will play a key role in a small project team working to implement a new mobile application that will support front line policing and service improvement across Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary. 

The individual must have the ability to analyse and understand business needs, and develop clear and accurate business requirements whilst ensuring that re-designed processes are aligned in order to improve performance and efficiency. 

As the role involves working with many different operational and strategic teams in Thames Valley and Hampshire, we require someone with excellent interpersonal skills and ideally a good working knowledge of policing processes. The individual will have previous experience of achieving outcomes through influence and persuasion, developing relationships with senior business stakeholders, and facilitating workshops and meetings. 

The Business Analyst will accurately assess the impact of change on existing processes, evaluate the risk, cost and benefits of any project change proposals and influence the approach to quantifying business benefits and benefit realisation. 

The ideal candidate must be a good listener and have excellent communication skills whilst being flexible, adaptable and a problem solver. A full driving licence is considered essential as capability to travel across the two Forces is required in order to undertake assignments in a timely manner and work flexibly. 

If you are a permanent member of staff applying for this role, please note it will be offered on a secondment basis. Important: All secondments are assumed supported and that your line manager and Head of Department/Commander or Deputy are aware of your intention to apply. If the secondment is not supported then a strong business rationale must be sent to quoting the reference number for the role. 

Please note: Shift allowance, on-call or other job related allowances from the previous role will not be protected unless they are attached to the new role for the duration of the secondment. 

As part of the Thames Valley Police family you will enjoy a fantastic range of benefits including 22-30 days annual leave per annum pro-rata for part time (plus Bank Holidays), flexible working conditions, a wide range of lifestyle discounts, career development opportunities and have the option to join a local government pension scheme.
