Businesses undergoing transformations, or those planning to make the great leap in the future, need a dedicated team to oversee their projects. That means putting plans in place, setting the wheels in motion, closely monitoring initial signals and fine-tuning where necessary, and finally reporting back to the board on progress at regular intervals. This tasks are carried out by a transformation team headed up by a business transformation manager.
The BT manager often reports to a business transformation director, but in some corporate structures the manager heads up the transformation and reports directly to the board as a whole. The details of the structure determines what roles the manager performs and how strategically they need to be thinking, i.e. whether they are creating a transformation project or simply implementing one. Either way, the BT manager needs to show the board that the transformation project is being activated to plan, and works alongside analysts and other managers to monitor and forecast its progress.
To land a great business transformation manager role, you need a minimum of experience at a managerial level overseeing a transformation project in an industry similar to the one in which the company operates. However, although experience at managerial level is preferred, team leadership or single-handedly overseeing transformation at a relevant level may be considered more important than the position’s title.
Above all, you need to demonstrate that you have the analytical skills required to oversee a project and ensure the wheels keep moving, especially when the terrain gets rough. You need to show that you can delegate effectively and that you have the people skills and the management skills needed to make sure the transformation project progresses as closely as possible to the plan and that the goal and milestones are met.

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 Transformation 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.
