Working Flexibly 
We’re committed to providing a supportive and inclusive culture and environment for you to work in. This environment recognises and supports ways to balance your personal needs, alongside the professional needs of our business. Providing the opportunity for all our employees, globally to work flexibly empowers each of us to work in a way that suits our lives as well as enabling us to better service our customers’ and clients’ needs. Whether you have family commitments or you’re a carer, or whether you need study time or wish to pursue personal interests, our approach to working flexibly is designed to help you balance your life.  If you would like some flexibility, then please discuss this with the hiring manager, and your request will be reviewed subject to business needs.

BUK & BX – All locations

We are currently in the early stages of implementing a hybrid working environment, which means that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. We’re flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally are able to request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances These requests will be reviewed and agreed for a period of time i.e., will have a start and end date.
Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.

•    Corporate Bank (CB) has one Important Business Service: ‘Make a Payment – electronic’. The Impact Tolerance threshold for Intolerable Harm is defined at 24hrs, inferring that, in the event that Barclays lost the ability to process payments through its regular BAU (technology) environment, the firm can quickly switch core payment processing of critical payments & to vulnerable clients to an alternative solution/provider
•    A combination of technology, operations and third party solutions may be used to meet the regulatory commitment, however the complexity & demands of the ‘Make a Payment’ IBS will place heavy reliance on a Technology solution
•    Your role will take primary responsibility for working with the Corporate Resilience Programme team and stakeholders across Business/Product, Technology and Operations to identify, scope, quantify, plan and control all Business Analysis related activity associated with the Vulnerability Remediation programme 
•    You will work in partnership with Business/Product to refine the ‘Intolerable Harm’ user cases/requirements
•    You will help decompose the functional flows that underpin the user cases
•    You will help define which functional steps are required to prevent Intolerable Harm, and which functional steps can be risk accepted
•    For the functional steps that can be risk accepted, you will drive qualification and quantification of risk, and achieve interlock and sign off with appropriate stakeholders within the organisation
•    For the functional steps critical to preventing Intolerable Harm, you will work with COO teams across the Group to drive solutioning options, which may include manual processes, adoption of 3rd party services or provision of Technology solutions
•    You will be required to create cost/benefit analysis to support key decisioning where multiple options exist, and you will be expected to target and lead these discussions/presentations with appropriate, often senior stakeholders across the Bank
•    You will be required to assess, design, develop and implement new business processes to support the solution
•    You will be required to support  teams across Engineering, Testing, Implementation and others, to ensure that the use case/requirements are understood, solutions are appropriate and complete, and adequately testing and accepted 
•    Actively contribute and champion the development of the change delivery process. 
•    Work collaboratively with other analysts and stakeholders across Corporate Bank and BUK to deliver programme business analysis outcomes and deliverables.

What will you be doing?
•    Drive requirements/user cases in partnership with the business, and assess complementary solution options to maximise solution coverage, while minimising the ‘new build’ technology footprint
•    Document requirements/user cases & support/quality assure the creation of solution outlines & functional designs
•    Responsible for producing business analysis deliverables throughout the lifecycle of the Corporate Resilience programme including amongst others solution option generation, current state analysis, to-be modelling, requirements gathering and documentation in both waterfall and agile terminology, business operating model generation and impact assessments.  
•    Ensure the delivery and presentation of Business Analysis is to appropriate levels of quality, on time and within budget, in accordance with the project plan, either as a sole BA or as part of the wider Barclays Resilience Programme. 
•    Contribute to the development of and champion the delivery methods which are being adopted by Corporate Bank and Barclays Payments.
•    Maintain leading-edge personal and professional development by regular and focused activity, which covers the complete development spectrum (i.e. conferences, courses, personal coaching, brown bag sessions etc).
•    Actively drive and take ownership of development in the Corporate Bank and Barclays Resilience business analysis community.

What we’re looking for:
•    Knowledge of Business Analysis methodologies with proven track record of delivery involving business analysis skill sets – process mapping, option generation, requirements gathering and solution execution.
•    In-depth knowledge of payment processing, payment operations and the payments business. Requires a detailed knowledge of the payment schemes and ability to assess options for interoperability

Skills that will help you in the role :
•    Industry standard BA qualification, nice to have but not essential
•    Knowledge of Corporate channels
