Job Level

As a business analyst, you help design and deliver business solutions to meet business needs, such as calculating economic capital, issued by the Credit Risk Quantification Administrative Department.
You analyze clients’ business needs and business context on important projects and initiatives. From needs assessment to rollout, you identify, design and recommend business solutions, analyze their impacts on the organization, and ensure they’re integrated. Your projects and initiatives require extensive knowledge of your line of work.

You help solve complex problems requiring comprehensive analysis and knowledge of your line of business and the ability to manage uncertainty and ambiguity. Coordination is critical, so you frequently interact with stakeholders working in other fields.
