Job Title: Senior Business Analyst
Salary: £31,000 - £46,500 plus bonus
Permanent | Full Time Hours | 37 hours per week | Flexible working available
As a Senior Business Analyst in Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission, you'll support the delivery of our Sustainability Strategy and undertake analysis on the future of energy and decarbonisation. You can view our Sustainability Strategy at this link: http://www.ssen-transmission.co.uk/media/2701/sustainability-strategy.pdf
As an expert in insights, sustainability or business change, you'll be able to work with colleagues to design and implement new business processes and approaches to deliver the benefits of sustainability and planning for a decarbonised energy future.
You will also contribute to our Environmental Discretionary Reward Incentive Submissions, working closely with colleagues to provide an award-winning submission. This will involve supporting business teams in implementing improvements, gathering information and producing incentive submission drafts, leading to our final submission.
Your role will encompass extensive stakeholder liaison, research, establishing required activities and processes, and sourcing evidence to deliver the strategy, ensuring that it is sustainable and to the benefit of the Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission business. You'll also aim to deliver an increased awareness of sustainability and environment within the Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission business, engaging your colleagues and encouraging a culture of awareness.
Your Skills and Experience
This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the delivery of real change within the energy industry, and as such, we ask that you have an awareness of sustainability, including wider social impacts and environmental issues. You'll hold experience in preparing and presenting business reports to a wide range of stakeholders, including strong analytical skills and an ability to identify innovative and progressive solutions. A key area of knowledge required is of our industry, and the regulatory bodies that govern it; any specific experience in energy networks would be a bonus, however not essential.
Your role will be varied, and often involve a range of diverse projects; therefore, you should be a highly-organised individual, with an ability to work under pressure, and to often tight deadlines. Due to the nature of your role, you should also have a knack for relaying complex messages in an easy to understand manner, with an ability to influence stakeholders where required.
