The role sits within part of the core Jupiter Change Management team, alongside staff working on other aspects of CIO driven change such as Research or bespoke process improvements outside of Aladdin.

Due to the nature of the outsourced platform support provided by BlackRock Solutions, the role has a combination of core business analysis and relationship management aspects, as the candidate will be expected to work directly with Jupiter users such as Portfolio Managers, understanding their use of the system, analysing and documenting required changes, and liaising with key BlackRock Solutions contacts to ensure they are prioritised and delivered.

The successful candidate is anticipated to have a track record with Aladdin either from a project role, or from a user perspective – e.g. a background in Dealing or Operations. This experience is weighted above formal project experience.

 

Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Build and maintain a strong relationship with Fund Management and Dealing in support of both BAU and strategic change needs
  • Elicit requirements using interviews, document analysis, requirements workshops, surveys, site visits, business process descriptions, use cases, scenarios, and task and workflow analysis
  • Facilitate prioritisation of change requirements for BRS from internal user groups
  • Liaise with BRS to ensure requirements are understood, scheduled and delivered
  • Drive adoption of BRS functionality within user groups, leveraging ‘super users’ within the business to facilitate
  • Assist with User Acceptance Testing of changes delivered by BRS, both those requested by Jupiter and those originating from the core BRS product pipeline

Desired Experience:

  • Strong Asset Management knowledge and experience
  • Business and technical change experience
  • Aladdin experience, either as a user or from implementation projects. The right candidate will have a sound working knowledge of key Aladdin components – Aladdin View, Green Package, Prism, PRT etc
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Excellent planning and organising skills.
  • Adaptable and a flexible approach to work
