Job Purpose

As a member of the Analysis and Consulting team within the Product and Service Delivery group, you'll be a role model for analysis best practice within the business, and will be responsible for the coverage, quality and accuracy of all requirements within the initiatives you work on, starting from the earliest concept evaluation stage right through to scoping, planning, delivery, test and trial.

Key responsibilities

  • Facilitate and drive senior stakeholders to succinctly define and baseline the overall scope for strategic initiatives, ensuring alignment with business case, architectural and operational objectives.
  • Work alongside architects and commercial teams to define and negotiate the functionality to be delivered by third party suppliers, in large scale commercial agreements.
  • Provide structure to, and gain consensus for the end-to-end analysis, scoping and planning approach and ways of working for complex programmes.
  • Ensure analysis and design does not cause delays to a programme, by ensuring technology, digital, data and operational analysis and design teams are provided with all support/information required for them to perform their own delivery activities, and by facilitating the tracking of analysis and design deliverables.
  • Build collaborative relationships with senior stakeholders across business, operational and delivery areas as a 'trusted advisor', in order to align on recommendations, guide them towards feasible solutions, resolve issues and agree delivery strategy without disrupting delivery initiatives.
  • Build collaborative and close relationships with Enterprise Architects and Delivery Managers within the group, to ensure alignment across scope, architecture, governance and plans in all initiatives you work on.
  • Conceive, implement and continuously improve analysis frameworks for network engineering and enterprise delivery teams.
  • Support concept shaping and evaluation in the very early stages of an initiative, using high quality consulting skills. You may also be required to use these consulting skills to identify and implement recommendations to improve struggling programmes of work.


Key Requirements

This role will have high visibility within the department: you will be working with all parts of the organisation as you co-ordinate end-to-end scoping and analysis activities for the client's largest and most exciting new launches.
It is a challenging role, and the successful candidate will need to be self-motivated and resilient.

  • Track record of having facilitated technology and operational analysis on very large cross-enterprise initiatives, ideally in the telecommunications domain but this domain experience is not essential.
  • Importantly, you will have a pragmatic results- and delivery- oriented mind-set.
  • Simplify and summarise problems in a straightforward and succinct manner.
  • Vision, drive, diplomacy and the ability to make things happen in an environment of ambiguity, complexity and multiple stakeholders, being able to influence others without direct authority.
  • Amazing facilitator who is able to resolve tension and increase collaboration towards shared goals in any situation.
  • You will be able to understand and incorporate financial, architectural, and operational and programme governance principles into your analysis work.
  • Finally, we want you to be a delivery expert: someone who can demonstrate they have what it takes to provide analysis to support delivery of software, network, and operational change at scale, both within an organisation and through third parties.
