I worked with Futureheads during my time at Travelex. The Futureheads team always listened carefully to the types of skills and personalities we needed. I've realised that when building large teams and introducing new disciplines to an organisation you need a recruiting partner not a service, and Futureheads provided just that.

We came, we walked, we walked some more

Last week, 26 of us laced up our trainers, put on our t-shirts, and headed down to Wimbledon to walk over 400km together for Macmillan Cancer Support, with each of us doing either a 10km or 20km walk. It was a great chance to enjoy some of the great outdoors, and spur each other on - but most importantly, we're so proud to have raised £1,361 for Macmillan.

Futureheads celebrates our fourth year on LSE 1000 companies to inspire Britain report

We're absolutely delighted to find out that we are listed on the London Stock Exchange’s 1000 companies to Inspire Britain for 2018. Making this list even once is something we're so proud of, but this is our fourth consecutive time on this list! Last year we used the term hat trick, and a swift google search has taught me that our fourth appearance on this list can be referred to as a 'haul'.

Frequently asked questions

What does a business analyst do?

A business analyst develops solutions to business problems or works to increase profits. They define, analyse and document what’s needed and talk to key stakeholders. In digital sectors, a business analyst will keep track of the company’s digital reach through media including website, apps and social media.  

Do I need a qualification to become a business analyst?

It’s not necessary but most employers want you to have a bachelor’s degree at least – and usually in a relevant subject, such as computer science or business.

What are employers looking for on a BA's CV?

Some companies look for experience that aligns directly with a specific project. If they are hiring for a web build project, for example, they will look for direct experience in this area. Others may simply look for someone with a breadth of digital experience. There is a big demand for candidates with strong experience in Agile.

Your CV should highlight the specific role you played in as a business analyst. It should include an example of the type of project, its purpose, team members, methodologies, main stakeholders; and the outcome.

What is the typical permanent salary for a Business Analyst?

Experience, responsibilities, skills, JavaScript ability and the industry you’re in will all impact on your salary.

Entry level BAs can expect a salary of around £25,000, going up to around £75,000 for very senior roles.

How can you get started as a BA?

Lots of organisations recruit graduates into junior business analyst roles, especially consultancies or large companies who can provide training. Some people become business analysts after working in another role within a team and actively seeking the extra responsibilities. It’s common to move into business analysis role from roles such as test, systems, marketing, sales, operations, reporting or other kinds of analyst positions or from a software development role.

Look out for courses that improve and showcase your knowledge and experience within Agile. Examples are the Professional Scrum Master Certification or Certified Scrum Product Owner (Scrum Alliance, London).
