Cutover Business Analyst

Role/ Context

Altum Consulting is currently working with a large multi-national that successfully completed a major acquisition this year. They\'ve mobilised the integration management office to drive synergies and efficiencies across people, process, technology, and data.

We\'re recruiting a Cutover Business Analyst to join on an initial 6-month engagement. You\'ll play a vital role in planning and executing a seamless cutover strategy for migrating the acquisition into their SAP environment, ensuring minimal disruption to the organisation.

    • Develop detailed user stories, data mapping strategies, and process flows to guide the cutover process.
    • Document system functionalities and user workflows for the new SAP environment.
    • Identify and document potential training needs for impacted users.
  • Cutover Support:
    • Assist the team developing cutover plans, outlining all required migration steps, timelines, and resource needs.
    • Assist with risk identification and develop mitigation strategies to address potential cutover challenges.
    • Ensure system designs balance both functional and non-functional requirements, considering user needs and technical limitations.
    • Participate in system testing and user acceptance testing (UAT) to ensure a smooth transition.
  • Communication & Collaboration:
    • Act as a liaison between business stakeholders, technical teams, and the Cutover Manager, ensuring clear communication and alignment throughout the cutover process.
    • Document cutover activities and progress reports for stakeholders.
    • Develop and deliver training materials for impacted users on the new SAP system functionalities.

Required Skills and Experience:

  • 2 years of experience as a Business Analyst or similar role.
  • Strong understanding of business analysis methodologies (e.g., BABOK), user story development, and data mapping.
  • Experience working with ERP systems, preferably SAP, or similar enterprise platforms.
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Strong communication, collaboration, and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team in a fast-paced environment.
  • Proficient in Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint).

Additional Information:

  • Hybrid working (2 days on-site in West Midlands)
  • Initial 6-month engagement on a 1 year programme
  • £500 per day (inside IR35)
