RecruitMyMom supports Moms through all life stages. We understand the need amongst some candidates and employers, with gender advancement opportunities, for full-time office-based positions. These are carefully considered and may be advertised on our site from time to time.

6-month Fixed Duration contract exists with the possibility of a new permanent role being created mid-year at the commencement of the new fiscal year. 

The aim of this role is to unpack business processes and create greater efficiencies by introducing digital transformation.  E.g. business processes are paper-based - there will be a move towards digitising processes.

The in-house development team create proprietary applications and systems to manage operations.  The BA will need to analyse business processes, wishlists, requirements and create greater efficiencies by writing detailed functional specifications for the dev team to use during their technical specification phase.  

The two focal areas will be:

  1. Data: analysis and reporting.  Developing key metrics to gauge business performance, ensure ongoing data integrity, conducting forensics trends analysis.  As such, the BA must have a very strong analytical ability - understand the business problem that they're trying to solve, how to formulate a solution.
  2. "General" Business analysis: meeting with all stakeholders, business process definition, creating solutions, functional spec development, communicate and relay to developers.


  1. Must be able to write queries in SQL
  2. Must be very comfortable liaising with all management levels - from line to EXCO (must be able to hold your weight when questioned by EXCO about data analytics)
  3. Understanding of BA methodologies would be advantageous
  4. Experience as an IT Business Analyst for at least 5 years
