When a company needs to change from within, be it a massive cultural shift or a paced, iterative series of improvements over time, the change needs to be project managed to perfection to minimize disruption, maintain workflow, maximize profitability and as far as possible, ensure that the employees are on board with the changes. This is the job of the change manager.
The change manager is typically in charge of a number of workstreams that are appropriate to the magnitude of the tasks. So that could mean anything from one to multiple workstreams depending on the complexity of the tasks and the manager’s experience. In larger companies the business change manager will report to a business change director, but often the manager is personally responsible for the change in his or her own area and reports directly to the board. In the latter, the manager will often be tasked with deciding on initiatives alongside analysts, the board and the production team itself, and will be judged on the success of his or her projects.
In many cases, the details of the change required will be given to you as business change manager, and you will have to project manage them to completion. At other times, however, the role starts much earlier, briefed with the information that change needs to happen and that you are to identify the low-hanging fruit as well as the finer details to come up with a long-term strategy of change.
Whatever your responsibilities, you are going to need a strategic, analytical mindset if you are to see your projects through to completion. Change is often a gradual process that needs a light hand on the tiller once it has been initiated, in which case you could have several overlapping workstreams to take care of. You’ll need to be able to juggle them effectively and know when to delegate management and when to take control yourself. Communication and understanding reports and instructions from people at all levels within the company is a key skill.

Until the end of the seventeenth century, what we now call Ellesmere Port was a collection of tiny fishing villages. However the canal system needed outlets into the sea, and this location, at the eastern tip of the Wirral Peninsula, was chosen, and a town and port grew up around it. In the nineteenth century the Manchester Ship Canal was built, and Ellesmere Port marked the starting point of it, and again the port area, and hence the population, shot up.
Although Ellesmere Port is more or less on the Wirral, it is part of Cheshire. Birkenhead is 9 miles (15 km) to the north west and Chester is 6 miles (10 km) to the south. The M56 passes by the town’s south side, and the M53 goes through the town as it joins Chester to Birkenhead and Liverpool via the tunnel. The Warrington to Birkenhead railway also bisects the town.
There is a steady flow of Business Change Manager jobs in Ellesmere Port thanks to two major industrial plants on its doorstep. The Stanlow oil refinery is the second largest in the UK and can process up to 12 million tonnes of oil a year, using the excellent transport links and nationwide pipelines to distribute its products. The other major employer is the Vauxhall plant, home of the Astra and the company’s only car plant in the UK. After troubled times in the 80s and 90s, things are looking up. With other industry in the town, a population of 65,000 and Chester and Liverpool just down the road, it’s a busy town at a major UK junction.
