Job Description

This leading University currently has the need for a Business Analyst for a 9 month Fixed Term Hired based on a pro-rata rate of $147,420 per annum including 17% super. It would be highly desirable for the BA to have experience working in universities and, ideally Curriculum Management processes and systems.

Project Overview:
The Curriculum Information System (CIS) and Online Curriculum Approval Process (OCAP) are managed using in-house developed systems on the ColdFusion platform. The objectives of these systems are to support the course approval and reaccreditation processes, capture and publish consistent curriculum information, including the Course Handbook and Subject Outlines, and to enable curriculum mapping.

Over time, these systems were enhanced and adjusted to meet business requirements. The technical platform and applications are now reaching the end of their useful life. In addition, the strategy points to future requirements to have a more modularised curriculum that can enable personalised learning pathways and qualifications; improved 'speed to market' of new learning offerings; supported by efficient technologies. An Open Tender was released to the market to invite potential suppliers to present suitable products to meet present and future requirements. This project is about proceeding with the Implementation Phase.

Key Tasks:
  • Facilitate workshops and interviews with users and stakeholders
  • Map 'To-Be' processes for chosen future platform, in liaison with vendor
  • Complete gap analysis from 'As-Is' processes (which are already documented)
  • Document requirements and acceptance criteria for future state
  • Will be working alongside another BA with more technical knowledge; this role will be more customer-facing

  • Good functional skills to be able to do gap analysis and identify, prioritize and document requirements for approval
  • Able to conduct workshops with a diverse group of stakeholders: business units, faculties, IT and 3rd parties
  • Be the focal point and interact with all team members
  • Able to manage difficult stakeholders together with the project manager and change manager
  • Able to manage end to end tasks assigned tasks and possess a delivery mindset
  • Some technical skills to understand technical solutions, though not a technical BA

You must be either an Australian Citizen or Australian Permanent Resident to be considered for this role.
