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 Woking
Woking is a town in London’s commuter belt, about 21 miles (34 km) from the centre of the capital. It is a prosperous town with a population of about 60,000 in the town itself, but its borough as a whole is home to around 100,000. The Kenwood electronics company was founded in the town by, you guessed it, Ken Wood.
The town has international fame thanks to motor sport. It has been home to McLaren racing since the 1980s after moving from Colnbrook near Heathrow Airport. The racing division of McLaren has a fantastic facility for building its Formula One racing cars in the town, and they have recently opened a state-of-the-art factory for building their road cars, one of which wouldn’t leave you much change out of £200,000. Both factories are notable by their cleanliness, which makes the average operating theatre or satellite laboratory look a little grubby.
Woking is well served by road, rail and air, and its hi-tech industries mean that expertise in many fields is often sought. For our part, Business Change Director vacancies have been filled of late, and development seems to be continuing apace.
There are a couple of notable references to Woking in popular culture. In HG Wells’s The War of the Worlds, it is Horsell Common, just north of the town, where the aliens first land, and the town has a 7m high tripod statue in honour of this distinction. Wells wrote the story whilst staying in Woking. It was also the birthplace of The Jam’s Paul Weller, and was the inspiration for their hit single A Town Called Malice. Comedians Sean Lock and Harry Hill and TV cook Delia Smith were also born here.
