Job description

Business Analyst

 

Be part of our evolution.

 

We don't like to stand still here at William Hill! We're constantly moving forward at a fast pace which means we are looking for an experienced, forward thinking Business Analyst to help us on this journey.

 

Your role in the team

This is an exciting opportunity to join William Hill’s Trading Tech function and to be involved in high profile projects which will improve the experience for our customers and our people.

 

You'll join a well-established team of Business Analysts who work at the forefront of technology as part of our internal development teams. This role offers business-wide exposure and will suit a tenacious, confident individual who can work closely with technology professionals and business contacts to make change happen.

 

Working with a wide range of stakeholders across William Hill from different locations and business areas, you will seek to understand and guide business change. You’ll gather requirements from business owners, produce user stories, documenting and mapping requirements to ensure these change projects are successful. As the BA, you are a key player in helping the business to understand the impact and to realise the benefit of all changes.

 

 

Skills needed

You’ll be a highly experienced BA with a track record of working in large, complex and agile environments, focussed on customer experience. The environment is fast paced and our BA's work on multiple projects at any one time. We want you to be able to demonstrate, through practical experience, an agile mind-set when producing detailed user stories and acceptance criteria amongst other deliverables.

Communication is key. As part of a development team driving forward major change in our organisation, you'll have the capability to work collaboratively across teams and build strong, mutually respectful relationships. Our BA's play a key role in leading and facilitating workshops and running ceremonies and so we need you to be a strong, confident communicator who isn't afraid to voice an informed opinion. We are looking for someone who can make a real contribution to the team and isn’t afraid to identify new business opportunities and is always striving for continuous improvement.

You'll have fantastic attention to detail and be an experienced critical thinker. Whilst change is great, we must understand, manage and mitigate risk and our BA's play an important part in performing risk management.

A background in our industry is not essential but a digitally savvy individual with experience of working with lots of data, combined with some sound BA experience, would be perfect for us!

 

What we offer

We’ll welcome you on-board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare, an attractive pension package, healthy gym discounts and a staff benefits scheme. Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.

 

William Hill in Leeds

Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there’s also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.

 About us

With over 16,000 people worldwide, we make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.
