Contract Description


Business Analyst - Inside IR35

Contract Term: Six months

Contracting Authority: NHS England

Location: Remote Working

Job Purpose:

Business Analyst required to join the NHS COVID Pass programme. The programme is well established, and the applicants will be required to pick up work that is currently in flight.

The COVID Pass is a live service, but there is significant ongoing work to implement new requirements as the result of policy changes, reduce technical debt, and improve the service as service design and user research continues.


As a Business Analyst, your main responsibilities would be: 

  • Support the delivery managers and Lead BA in creating and refining epics and user stories to drive change
  • Provide the scrum master updates and refinements on backlog and prioritisation and provide a weekly report on activities and outputs
  • Attend sprint ceremonies and run the ceremonies that specifically relate to refinement of requirements/stories
  • Work with the Service and Product design team
  • Liaise with key stakeholders across the programme to ensure that requirements are clear and complete (including policy, service design, information governance, comms, security, technical/architecture, and senior leadership/SLT where needed)
  • Support technical teams (developers, testers, QA) in their understanding of the requirements
  • Produce epics and user stories in a timely manner to ensure readiness for review and agreement prior to sprint commencement
  • Support the delivery team inputs to key programme sessions such as Backlog Prioritisation, Design Authority, Programme Board, SLT presentations and sign offs as needed


You’ll have relevant experience in:

  • Previous experience in digital and system change
  • Proven track record of eliciting, documenting, and analysing requirements
  • Ability to manage conflicting requirements and priorities and find appropriate solutions and compromises between stakeholder groups
  • An understanding of the different priorities that can influence the programme, including HMG Policy, Information Governance, Security, Comms, Software Development, Testing/QA, and Implementation
  • Experience in shaping and refining epics and user stories to support agile software development teams
  • Managing requirement sessions and agile ceremonies within the delivery team to ensure that epics and user stories are appropriately refined and reflect input/consultation from a wide range of stakeholders
  • Experience working closely with technical delivery teams - developers, testers, QA
    Produces clear and complete documentation, particularly when documenting requirements
  • Experience with JIRA and Confluence is advantageous but not mandatory
