Business Analyst, Strategy

We're on a mission to change banking for good.  That's a brave statement, but we're not scared to dream big.  Not only are we up there amongst the UK's top 10 credit card providers, but we want to lead the digital revolution in financial services.  Since our inception we've been a company built on bold, new ideas and an entrepreneurial spirit.

For 3 years running, between 2013 and 2015 we have taken 1st place in Best Workplaces in the UK.  Our Nottingham and London offices are full of brilliant associates utterly committed to supporting each other and enabling people to succeed with credit.

The business analyst job family

Capital One was founded on the premise that it would succeed with Information Based Strategy (IBS), by using information more effectively than powerful, entrenched competition.  The Business Analyst job family is at the heart of Capital One’s IBS strategy.  A Senior Business Analyst is expected to make a major contribution to Capital One’s short and long term success, by harnessing the power of information for better decision making.

Successful Business Analysts, at all levels, will therefore be able to work fluently with a wide variety of information sources, combining a strategic understanding of competitive and industry trends, with qualitative feedback from consumer focus groups or line operations, and a detailed analysis of customer level data.  She or he will be able to synthesize and articulate the insights arising from this information into coherent market-facing strategies, and will be able to motivate and lead the broader organisation to deliver on this strategic intent.

What’s on offer

Capital One is looking for top-tier talent to extend the Business Analyst family and enable the organisation to fulfil some exciting opportunities.  Compensation, training and learning, and career progression opportunities are therefore aligned with the needs of this key talent.  Capital One also offers a special and unique culture of camaraderie, fun and personal growth.

Business Analysts are seen as a key source of top management talent within Capital One.  Alumni from Capital One’s Business Analyst track have also gone on to be highly successful externally, and include entrepreneurs, consultants and business leaders in other industries.

The Business Analyst role at Capital One can be compared to a Strategy Consultant externally, whilst our Business Analysts get to see their projects through, right until completion. The ability to see the results of your work can be very fulfilling and provides the learning insight that is necessary to continuously improve and develop.
