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 High Wycombe
The Buckinghamshire town of High Wycombe might sound like a sleepy village with a cricket pitch and a pub, but it’s actually a large town that’s quite industrialised, especially for a southern town. In the past it has been known as a mill town and a paper making centre, but it is probably its furniture workshops for which it became best known. Thousands of terraced homes were built for the workers, and by the middle of the nineteenth century High Wycombe rivalled the towns around Manchester for its industriousness, but also for its squalor. A major redevelopment was carried out in the 1920s to bring habitation up to modern standards. During the Second World War, RAF Bomber Command was based in the town, and was joined in 1942 by the United States’ equivalent.
Although the actual town of High Wycombe has a population of around 75,000, it is part of an amalgamation of smaller towns whose population totals around 120,000. The town is on the M40, about halfway between the centre of London and Oxford.
High Wycombe might have had its ups and downs economically, but it appears to be on the up at the moment, and Business Change Director jobs have been found in the area. With excellent road and rail links to London and Oxford, it’s a natural place for a distribution centre. Its status as something of a commuter town also means there’s a lot of movement of goods into High Wycombe.
