What you will do in your working day

Where you start with Amazon doesn’t determine the course of your career, so many of our apprentices develop themselves beyond their wildest imaginations, and we truly value early talent and your thoughts, ideas and contributions. Within your role, you’ll be encouraged to, and inspired to, make an impact on developing skills for life throughout.

As a Business Analyst apprentice, you'll play a pivotal role in aligning business objectives with technology solutions. Your responsibilities involve analysing data, documenting processes, and gathering requirements to support decision-making processes within the organisation. You'll learn to be proficient in data modelling and interpretation, as you contribute to the development of strategies that enhance business processes and overall efficiency. With a keen eye for detail, you'll collaborate with various stakeholders, including end-users and development teams, to ensure that solutions meet business needs. In the dynamic field of business analysis, you will be instrumental in identifying opportunities for process improvement, driving informed decision-making, and contributing to the overall success of business initiatives.

As part of this role, you will work alongside customers, business users, suppliers, product owners, software developers, testers and senior leaders. Therefore, you'll need great communication skills. You'll also need to be excited by investigating and analysing problems and seeking opportunities for improvement.

Your ambitions should be guided by a strong desire to learn, grow, investigate problems and have an analytical mind!

  • Collaborating with various stakeholders to understand and document business requirements.

  • Creating detailed reports and documentation to communicate your findings and recommendations.
  • Participating in project meetings and contributing to the successful execution of business projects.
  • Keeping abreast of industry trends and best practices in business analysis.

You'll need to have a bias for action, the ambition to deliver results and collaborate and build trust, with an overarching passion to learn and be curious. To be a success, you will need to be committed to your own development and be prepared to make the most of the opportunities, practical experience and qualifications given to you. In return, we provide first class on the job coaching, specialist partner training and unparalleled experience working in a diverse, innovative environment where you will be challenged to excel and positively contribute.

At Amazon, we strive to be the Earth’s most customer-centric company. We put our customers first and strive to meet their unmet needs worldwide. We have a passion for invention, drive a commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. Working here means being entrepreneurial, being customer obsessed, thinking big and challenging the status quo, whilst working collaboratively to make the impossible a reality. Trust and empowerment are paramount to the way we work – it’s what allows us to do things differently as well as be bold and creative.

We’re passionate about our vision and values-lead culture which is governed by our leadership principles, and we are committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the customers and communities we serve. Together we’re building a truly inclusive workplace where all our colleagues have the chance to make a real difference.
