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.
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.

An administrative area that was created in 1965, Greater London is often described as the region within the M25. It comprises the City of London, as well as the 32 boroughs, and is home to an array of businesses, making it an ideal choice for those seeking Business Change Director opportunities.
For hundreds of years, London was known for its shipping and manufacturing, producing everything from textiles and food products, through to automobiles and ironwork.
In fact, a number of such facilities are still in operation today, such as the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery in Silvertown, Warburtons in Brimsdown and Nestle in Hayes. At the Ford factory in Dagenham, vehicle body panels and diesel engines are manufactured, while Fuller's Brewery operates out of Chiswick.
For the most part, however, London's economy is now based in the financial and service industries.
Around 70 per cent of the FTSE 100 are located within Greater London. In Canary Wharf, you'll find the headquarters of HSBC, Barclays, Citigroup and Reuters, while other big-name businesses in Greater London include the Guardian Newspaper, Balfour Beatty, GlaxoSmithKline, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Marks & Spencer, BP, British American Tobacco and Royal Dutch Shell.
What's more, transportation is a huge part of London's economy and day-to-day operation. Overground trains, underground trains, buses, coaches, taxis and trams all keep Londoners on the move, while the area is also home to a number of airports and the Port of London.
