Digital consultant

Permanent — full time

About the role

Storm ID is an award-winning digital transformation consultancy, with clients spanning the public sector, healthcare, financial services and early stage start-ups.

In a world that’s more reliant than ever on digital, we help our clients transform processes and experiences, re-imagine their business models and even entire companies.

As a digital consultant you will be responsible for identifying, shaping and recommending practical opportunities for clients to make the most of digital transformation. The role will see you working with a range of clients on large-scale and innovative websites and applications across a range of sectors.

About you

You might currently be a business analyst, product owner/manager or consultant. Whatever your current job title, you will be a people-centred problem solver who enjoys helping clients tackle their biggest challenges by thinking and acting digitally.

You'll have practical experience within the shaping or delivery of digital projects in the context of business change, digital transformation or technology modernisation.

You'll be:

  • an analytical thinker with the ability to quickly absorb new information and identify key issues.
  • adept at applying critical thinking to translate business and user requirements into practical, digital solutions.
  • able to work independently to understand client requirements and choose a course of action appropriately from a range of analysis methodologies.
  • able to communicate effectively – in person and in writing – with clients and colleagues, bringing people together on projects while tackling conflicting requirements.
  • customer focused and able to build strong, empathetic relationships with clients of all skill and knowledge levels.
  • open to learning from others, and offering your support when needed.

It is also desirable if you have experience with agile methodologies, user centred design and The Scottish Government Digital First Standard.

What you'll do

You’ll have a wide range of responsibilities and opportunities to learn. Core responsibilities will include:

  • use a variety of elicitation techniques to understand business domains and identify requirements. This will include running workshops and interviews.
  • produce written or diagrammatic artefacts to help articulate information and build shared understanding
  • act in a business analysis capacity on projects which may include producing software/business requirements, product backlogs, ​​​​​​​'as is' states and processes and desired ‘to be’ future states.
  • act in a product owner role if required on projects where responsibilities may include definition of product roadmap, defining the scope of a new product, prioritising functional requirements and proactively engaging with stakeholders to understand and address challenges throughout the project.
  • contribute to or lead on the scoping and planning of activities and statements of work.
  • contribute in creation of digital transformation roadmaps, operating models and strategies.

You’ll collaborate closely alongside colleagues (including user research, technical and project management) and clients in multi-disciplinary teams.

Storm ID staff are working fully remotely for the moment in accordance with Scottish Government advice. You will be provided with a laptop and any other tools you need to enable you to interact with clients and colleagues. You’ll be supported by an active and engaged Storm community on Slack and Teams.

You’ll be able to meet key members of each team through an online induction programme and the wider team through virtual coffees/donuts. In more normal circumstances you’ll be working from our lovely offices in Leith, and meeting clients across Scotland and further afield.
