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.

The cathedral city of Lincoln has been an important location throughout our island’s history. Iron age settlements have been excavated there, and under the name of Lindum Colonia, it became an key Roman town. It formed the junction of several roads to London, York, the East Coast (present-day Skegness), and the fort of Venonis, near present-day Coventry. The Roman roads still stand out on the map, in the shape of the A46 running south-west towards Leicester, and more notably the north-south running A15 to Scunthorpe, which would follow a perfect straight line all the way were it not for a kink around RAF Scampton, home of the Red Arrows.
The town was largely agricultural until the industrial revolution and the arrival of the railways, which brought many industrial entrepreneurs to the city. One of the companies that was to set up in Lincoln was William Foster & Co., which would go on to design and build the first tanks in their Lincoln factory during the First World War. Much of this heavy industry is no longer in existence in the city, following a series of conglomerations and takeovers, although there is still a large Siemens works and gas turbines remain the largest single source of employment in the city. Most of the old engineering plants have now been converted into small manufacturing, IT and service industries.
The university and tourism are important attractions for jobs and visitors, and there are several out of town retail parks around the city. It is a beautiful city to live and work in, so if you’re on the lookout for a Business Change Manager job in Lincoln, look no further than Cast UK.
