*** circa £350 per day ***

*** immediate start required ***

** Duration: 8 weeks (including ad hoc availability mostly via email during the tender process in June) **

We're looking to recruit a Business Analyst (IT Systems)

The Business Analyst will be engaged to support the procurement of a new supply contract for an existing IT solution (iOS Application and Mungo Database currently delivered by a third party provider). AQA intends to go to market to engage a supplier to deliver an established IT solution that underpins the delivery of an important part of AQA’s service offering.

The existing solution has been in place and in use for circa three years and the source code for the current iteration is held in Escrow. AQA is seeking an individual to support this procurement initiative, specifically in relation to the following:

  • To review current app (iOS) and database (Mungo) functionality and identify, prioritise and document user requirements not met by the current IT solution.
  • To document the existing solution in the form of a functional specification for use in the procurement process.
  • To engage with the current provider and with internal stakeholders for the purposes of delivering the above.
  • To be available on email, during the tender evaluation period to support the resolution of any technical questions raised by potential suppliers in the course of the development of their bids and to support our evaluation of their proposals (which may require attendance at supplier meetings).

We’re an independent education charity and the largest provider of academic qualifications taught in schools and colleges.

We set and mark papers for around half of all GCSEs and A-levels, and nearly one and a half million students sit our exams every year. Born out of five leading universities, we have over a century of qualifications expertise.

Today, we employ nearly 1,000 people and work with around 28,500 teachers, subject experts and academics who help set and mark our exams. Our purpose is to advance education by enabling students and teachers to realise their potential, and any money we make through providing qualifications gets invested back into education.

Closing date for applications: 10:00 Monday 12 February 2018 No agencies, thank you.
