Please note, should we receive a high volume of applications for this role, your application may not be shortlisted if you do not submit a Supporting Statement. A Supporting Statement is an important part of our application process, so we would encourage you to submit one as part of your application.

As a Business Analyst you’ll use your positive attitude, your knowledge of gathering requirements and your ability to support areas of the RCN to deliver transformational change for the benefit of our members.

It's a job full of possibilities as you will be directly involved in delivering the RCN Transformation agenda. This will entail working with stakeholders to translate business requirements into detailed functional specifications and project briefs and supporting delivery of business change, improvement to processes and technical solutions. It's a great way to build your knowledge of our work and develop your potential.

A key part of what you do will be to work with internal and external stakeholders to help scope, deliver and support real transformational business process change across the RCN.

What we offer you

We expect you to look after our members. And we expect you to be rewarded for it. As well as a whole range of learning and development opportunities we can also offer you an impressive range of benefits. We have a highly competitive pay structure, as well as flexible working, and annual leave of up to 32 days.

Balancing work and life commitments is important to us as an organisation. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs. All employees can ask for flexible working and when personal circumstances change we will work with you to find a smarter working solution that suits everyone. In fact, many of our employees enjoy home working, flexible working or compressed hours, enabling them to deliver results with minimum impact to their professional and personal commitments. We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.

To join us, you’ll need extensive experience and a full understanding of Business Analysis methodologies, along with experience of working with customers and stakeholders to elicit, define and prioritise business requirements with a view to collaborating on innovative solutions.

You’ll also have the skills and ability to contribute to the preparation of business cases which define potential benefits, options for achieving these benefits through development of new or changed processes and can identify associated business risks.

To succeed at the Royal College of Nursing all you need to do is think bigger, better and brighter. And with an attitude like that, anything’s possible.
