Kirk Bedford, Business Analyst
Business Analyst , Public Sector, Digital Transformation

What’s your background?
I’ve been a BA in the private sector for the last 4 or 5 years. Prior to this I was a civil servant for 14 years progressing from operational roles, into project management, product management, and delivery roles. Having decided to seek pastures new in 2015, I looked at my skills and experience, and decided that I wanted to be a BA when I grew up…..

Describe your role at Difrent
It's a bit early to describe my role at Difrent….but I’ve been recruited to be a BA on the BPS project, so it’s probably safe to say that the role can be described using a combination of the following: digital/transformation/analysis/improvement/ process/user.

Who are you outside of Difrent?
I’m a 43-year old with a wife, a dog, and a cat, who has recently bought a greenhouse, and who is thinking about getting an allotment. I’m a fairly recent convert to vegetarianism. I like to travel, but it doesn’t happen enough - Japan in Autumn 2018 was the last big trip.

Who would you invite to dinner, dead or alive?
Blimey…..that’s a tough one. Probably just me and the lovely Mrs Bedford.
