Are you interested in a unique and exciting role that leverages your strengths in both financial analysis and interpersonal/communication skills? Do you like working in a dynamic environment that requires coolness under pressure, proactive problem-solving, and the ability to keep multiple plates spinning in the air at a time? Do you seek work within an organization that will value your ability to work independently while also providing the support of a highly collaborative team?

The Administrative Business Service Center (ABSC) at the University of Vermont (UVM) is a shared service center that provides expertise, support and guidance regarding complex budget, finance and HR functions to the administrative departments at UVM.

A successful ABSC Business Analyst will utilize excellent communication and interpersonal skills to provide high-quality stakeholder support and guidance in a high-volume, deadline-driven environment that requires a proven commitment to both customer service and compliance. The role is equally dedicated to the needs of the customer and the needs of the University. Managing these relationships requires empathy, nuance and the willingness/ability to deliver difficult messages when needed.
