Person Specification

  • Product Specification: Strong business analysis (BA) and technical specification skills. Should be able to interpret business requirements and translate/communicate them in concise and technical language.


  • Process Driven: Control Now focus on delivering streamlined and highly scalable services. The candidate must be well-organised and focused on constant process improvement. The candidate must be patient and willing to perform testing functions effectively to reduce rework. Must be confident with Atlassian Jira, Atlassian Confluence & Microsoft Visio.


  • Project Management: Proven ability to manage software implementation projects, including client training and demonstrations.


  • DBS: Strong DB design and DB operations experience. The solution will need multiple databases; TR Data, system configurations, and file handler.

  • Operations: Strong experience designing and delivering solutions to enterprise-level SLAs. TR Connect will be required to submit data to regulators by 23:59 on the business day following execution – failure to do so will leave our clients in regulatory breach. The solution must be robustly designed with fail-safes and solid disaster recovery processes.


  • GUI: Experience designing and delivering intuitive graphical user interfaces for data-intensive applications. The GUI will read data from local and CN servers and provide oversight on submission operations.
