Impact Analyst / Data Analyst (ABOR) - Edinburgh - Permanent

Head Resourcing is currently recruiting for an experienced Impact Analyst / Data Analyst for our prestigious client in the investments industry in Edinburgh. Our client is going through a large scale change project in their Accounting Book of Records (ABOR) space and it is a large application estate that impacts a number of other internal systems. The drive to rationalise and modernise this area means that a careful and detailed assessment needs to be made on how the systems (and their data) integrates with other systems across the business and then understanding how that impacts future rationalisation. You will identify technical problems and determine the impact across the application estate and codebase, so that solutions (both architectural, developmental, and procedural) can be implemented in line with the target operational systems model. Our client has a customer-focused culture where they value collaboration and passion, you will gain great exposure across our client's organisation from front office to back office - if you are not currently working in the investment industry this is a fantastic opportunity to learn new business skills in a renowned organisation.
