Further detail:


Our aim is for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they
belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our
people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI
they work in and whatever their background. 
In 2016 it was identified that to support consistent safeguarding practice, improve
the quality of recording and to effectively manage the tracking of those who posed
a safeguarding risk, the Church of England needed to operate using a common
casework management system. This came about in response to findings identified
in the SCIE independent safeguarding audits of Dioceses, and in preparing for the
Independent Inquiry into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse’s (IICSA) investigation
into sexual abuse within the Anglican Church.
The Archbishops Council has committed to creating a national safeguarding
Casework Management System, which will be adopted by the National
Safeguarding Team (NST) and ultimately all dioceses, cathedrals and TEI’s of the
Church of England.
To assist NST on this project, there is a requirement for a Business Analyst to lead
the Church of England on this very exciting new change journey to help adapt a new technology that will modernize case management and introduce much needed
process efficiencies.

As a Business Analyst, your primary responsibility will be to ensure that the new
system is properly configured and tested, and that the data is migrated, well-
adopted and fully utilised, with people gaining and retaining proficiency in using it.
To be successful, you will need to work collaboratively with both technical and non-
technical colleagues and stakeholders, developing excellent working relationships
with cross-functional teams.

We are taking a flexible approach to work, with many colleagues opting for a hybrid
approach to their working week, with a mixture of home and office-based working.
Further details will be discussed at interview.
In return we offer a unique environment with opportunities for continuous learning,
generous annual leave for work life balance and a range of benefits including
discounted entry to attractions and what we feel is a market leading package when
it comes to our pension scheme.
