Business Analyst roles and increasing candidate availability

Posted June 13, 2024

With a busy start to Q2 in the Business Analyst market, Sanderson have been having promising conversations with clients in several industries who are looking to hire candidates with these skills into their teams. With a lot of good candidates on the market, is now the time to secure your next Business Analyst? Our Principal Consultant David Awde shares his thoughts.

The Business Analysis job market is showing encouraging signs of becoming much busier over the second half of the year and we are actively engaged with clients across various sectors, including Life and Pensions, Wealth Management, Insurance, Utilities, Retail, and Automotive.

We have noticed a trend, especially in the contract space, where clients are looking for Business Analysts with niche experience working on specific types of projects. Within Financial service, for example, outside of the constant demand for Business Analysts with regulatory experience, we have seen multiple redress roles in the Motor Finance and Wealth space and an increased demand for Business Analysts with experience building new financial services products.

While candidate availability is good, strong candidates on the market are starting to obtain multiple interviews and offers when looking for work. As a result, clients may need to expedite their hiring processes to secure top talent and avoid disappointment.
