About Regulatory & Mandatory Change

Who We Are

We are a global team which has over-sight and delivery of regulatory and mandatory change across Barclaycard.

Our Mission

To ensure that Barclaycard is compliant with the regulatory and policy changes and remediating control, policy or compliance gaps. We ensure that business units are working to a common interpretation and driving cross -Barclaycard solutions.

What We Do

To deliver change projects and programmes across Barclaycard business units to ensure compliance with the regulation and policy changes or to remediate control/policy/compliance gaps. A key focus is driving efficiencies by developing single solutions across Barclaycard.

Overall purpose of role

As an AVP Business Design Analyst (BDA) you will have a wide variety of assignment types and each come with their own demands and opportunities. As an entry level AVP you are expected to have experience of projects in a change environment.

You will be expected to produce standard BDA outputs such as requirements, impact assessments, gap analysis and process flows with minimal support. In all cases your work will be peer reviewed by a Senior BDA before being issued and there will be a clear point of contact for any queries. You will be shown the Barclaycard ways of working and standard templates as a start point, but it is expected that you will apply your own experience and judgment to deliver the right artefacts/approach for that specific situation/project. AVP BDAs will often work on projects as the sole analytical resource, so need to be comfortable in planning and managing their own work as part of the overall project plan and objectives. It is also common for AVPs to form a team of peers where each person is responsible for a work stream or function on a larger programme. This could be with or without a lead BDA so strong team working skills are important.

There is also the possibility as an AVP that you could be responsible for assignment managing less experienced colleagues or contractors where you will be responsible for their delivery as well as your own. As you build experience and expertise, the scale and complexity of the projects you work on will also increase, and your responsibilities will broaden beyond your own delivery to include responsibility for others. This will create opportunities for you to develop new skills such as people management and leadership which will take you towards a VP position.
