Role Title: Senior Business Analyst

Location: London

Duration: 6 Months

Rate: £522.50 PAYE / £670.47 Umbrella

The role will work across HSBC's "FRTB" and "K2" programmes, which are both working to change the front-to-back architecture for the IRD system, Summit. The motivations for FRTB and K2 differ, but the intention is for both programmes to switch data sources from point-to-point feeds to a new standard results data store "Vault". In particular, for this role the focus will be on sourcing data from Vault and and the subsequent application of accounting rules to generate journals posted to the GL.

The role holder will ensure that common requirements are identified across both programmes, and solution design is fit for purpose for multiple locations and realises a consistent approach to data modelling, data processing and the implementation of accounting rules.
