• Manage risks and issues and escalate to appropriate management level when necessary.
• Work closely with the test team, operational readiness team and data migration team to ensure they have a thorough understanding of the requirements to enable them to operate effectively.

You will have
• Extensive experience as a Business Analyst working in Investment Banking projects.
• Direct responsibility of gathering requirements and writing requirements documentation using a structured approach.

• Strong analytical and problem solving skills.
• Previous exposure in working with and communicating to stakeholders.
