Business Change Director Jobs
Every business needs to embrace change to make sure it stays on top of its game into the future. Businesses that are serious about change dedicate teams to that very task to identify issues holding the company back and put measures in place to make them work more efficiently. Depending on the size and complexity of the company, the team will have general operatives, managers and at the top of the pile, a business change director. This director sits on the board and makes decisions based on the company’s strategy and the information he or she gets from the team on the ground.
The business change director is in charge of seeing through changes in the company. Whetherl personally laying down plans or whether delegating them to the managers who will see it through varies from company to company. However, it is the director’s ultimate responsibility to see change happen and to ensure that the results benefit the company.
The skills required
Managing change in a company requires a host of skills, from the purely mathematical and analytical to the effective management of people, as it’s ultimately the workforce who have to implement change and who are most affected by it. You ideally have experience at board level of directing change in an appropriately sized organization, although some companies do look at experienced and talented business change managers who have successfully delivered projects to companies.
Experience of working in the same industry as that in which the position is vacant will be of great benefit. All industries have unique blends of infrastructure and culture unique to them, and it may not be easy taking the experience of overseeing change in one industry to another. However, an ability to demonstrate that you are flexible and have a brilliant grasp of business change will be enough for you to be considered in many companies.
Business Change Director Jobs in Derby
Located on the River Derwent in Derbyshire, Derby is among England's 20 largest urban areas and the broad range of businesses based there today make it a great option for those seeking new Business Change Director vacancies.
Derby's history goes back to a Roman settlement called Derventio and the area was home to Saxon and Viking communities during its early years.
The Industrial Revolution marked an important turning point for Derby and the city was the first to reap the benefits of a water-powered silk mill in the early 1700s.
Other innovations later in the century led to improved techniques for manufacturing stockings. In addition, a number of cotton spinning mills were established.
Within 100 years, Derby had become an important industrialised city as well as the headquarters for a number of regional railways.
Rolls-Royce established a factory in 1907, constructing cars and aircraft, while the Derby railway works was a bustling facility that designed and built rolling stock for the nation's growing rail system. Indeed, the first diesel-electric locomotive was produced there in 1948.
There's no doubt that Derby's past has influenced its future and today its top employers continue to be based in automotive manufacture and railway engineering. These include Rolls-Royce, Toyota and Bombardier Transportation.
Other well-known companies include Egg, an internet banking company, and Alstom, a company that manufactures boilers and heat exchangers for industrial purposes. Meanwhile, the chocolate company Thorntons is headquartered in nearby Alfreton.
