About Standard Chartered
We are a leading international bank focused on helping people and companies prosper across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
To us, good performance is about much more than turning a profit. It's about showing how you embody our valued behaviours - do the right thing, better together and never settle - as well as our brand promise, Here for good.
We're committed to promoting equality in the workplace and creating an inclusive and flexible culture - one where everyone can realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to our organisation. This in turn helps us to provide better support to our broad client base.
The Role Responsibilities
Background:
A key priority for the finance function define and initiate a comprehensive change roadmap for Cost Reporting that will address some of the fundamental issues residing within the process today.
The existing framework involves too many complex and independent processes that run on different technology platforms and follow alternate guidelines and principles. This ultimately leads to accountable cost owners not getting the relevant information that they need to make effective decisions, and process / product owners who do not have the tools that they need to resolve it.
The Cost Optimisation program was established in early 2020 to focus specifically on this area and lay out a strategic roadmap on how we can solve some of these underlying issues. Key objectives for the program include:

  • Simplification of processes to be more efficient and transparent

  • Defining governing rules and policy&rsquos that are universally adhered to

  • Transition to a standardised technology landscape with increased capability and flexibility

  • Integration with other strategic initiatives to fully leverage the benefits across finance.

  • Less arbitrary and more direct attribution of costs

  • Transparent MI highlighting cause-effect relationship between service consumption and cost


So far in 2020 the program has initiated work on the first use case which is simplifying and improving the group service charge process, aligning it with the Financial Reporting initiative and building it on the new SAP infrastructure PAPM (Profitability and Performance Management). Whiles this is progressing there is already an eye looking forward at other subsequent use cases which includes other recharge processes along with opportunities to simplify and align our incurred cost structures to further improve our cost reporting for stakeholders.
The Business Analyst role will play a critical role on the program with responsibility for the solution design and engagement with the Technology partners through delivery. The solution is not just the implementation of a single system but a fully integrated platform and process that will need to integrate successfully with the other related solutions including Financial Reporting, Planning, Reference Data Management and Reporting in both a transition and future state. The role will report into the Program Delivery Lead.

  • Engage with other change partners including technology / third parties to ensure design / Delivery issues are identified and resolved effectively

  • Support system readiness in preparation for testing cycles

  • Facilitate system testing and support user community through the UAT phases

  • Conduct solution impact assessment and support engagement with ACFO community through approval and acceptance phase

  • Support documentation of target operating model / process design

  • Successful conversion of solution into live production operating rhythm, supporting GPO&rsquos and product owners through all aspects of transition

  • Build strong relationships with key delivery partners, and ensure efficiencies and synergies are realised across programmes.
