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.

A city in the East Midlands and the county town of Leicestershire, Leicester was originally founded as a Roman settlement and those living or working in the area can still see some of the pavements and bathhouses that survive from that period.
For hundreds of years, Leicester thrived as a market town. Then in the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution led to a major boost in the city's wealth and population. The construction of an extensive rail and canal network also helped bring business, money and more people to the region.
During this period, Leicester became known for its shoemaking industry, while hosiery and textiles were also manufactured in the area. In addition, it was a hub of engineering and a financial centre.
In fact, Leicester's reliance on engineering has continued through to today, with a variety of companies like Jones & Shipman, Richards Engineering and Trelleborg - known for their machining of tools and equipment, as well as components for marine and industrial applications - all having offices in the city. Fabric and footwear are also still important parts of the local economy.
A number of large companies call this city home, meaning there's a wealth of opportunity for those seeking Business Change Manager jobs in Leicester. Big names like Next, Goldsmiths, British Gas Business, Walmart and DHL all have head offices here, while around ten million bags of crisps are manufactured every day at the Walkers Crisps factory in Beaumont Leys.
