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.

Located in Yorkshire, on the Humber Estuary, Kingston upon Hull - or simply Hull - has been inhabited since the Neolithic period. After King Edward I granted it a royal charter in 1299, it became a thriving market town, as well as a military supply port and a centre for fishing and whaling.
From the Medieval period through to the Industrial Revolution, the easily navigable waters of the River Hull helped the town prosper as a trading hub with Scotland, as well as northern Europe and Scandinavia, while some products came from as far away as Australia and South America.
The large amount of wealth that came into the region during 1800s led to a number of fine Victorian buildings, such as the Dock Offices, which house the Hull Maritime Museum today. Unfortunately, many of these beautiful buildings were lost during World War II, as around 95 per cent of the homes in the city were destroyed during the Hull Blitz.
Since then, Hull has been rebuilt and the city has remained an important port for industry, while a number of ferries provide transport to Europe for around a million travellers every year.
Those seeking Business Change Manager jobs in Hull will find that the region offers a variety of opportunities, with big-name companies like BP, Reckitt Benckiser and Seven Seas all having a large presence.
