Company: JR Rix & Sons
We want an individual who can bridge the gap between critical IT projects and the needs of our business units, someone who develops an understanding for our processes, identifies opportunities for change and develops technical requirements to ensure the effective use of our systems.
Our business has had a reputation as one of Yorkshire’s top employers for 150 years, and now we’re building our IT capability to revolutionise the way our 17 businesses operate.
If you like variety, discussing challenges with knowledgeable individuals and working in an entrepreneurial environment then this is the opportunity for you.
Who Are You?
You will be someone who works well with others, collaborating to understand the pain points associated with a process, and then looks to drive solutions that make people’s lives easier.
As part of a team, you’ll show that you can take responsibility for business analysis across group-wide projects where your contribution is valued. The advice you help identify and decisions made will have a measurable impact on the profitability or effectiveness of Rix.
You’ll validate and justify business needs, conduct feasibility studies, develop information and process models, review potential partners and produce high-level and detailed business cases which take into account the implications of change on the organization and all stakeholders.
You are someone who has the potential to guide senior management towards accepting recommended changes brought through process and organisation change.
You’ll understand how SMEs are organised and be able to understand a broad range of business operations.
You will have a good understanding of Agile projects, particularly Scrum. We would love it if you knew Design Thinking too.
