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.

As the UK’s capital and largest city, it should come as no surprise that London offers a wealth of opportunities for those seeking procurement, logistics and supply chain jobs .
Indeed, there’s something for everyone in the Big Smoke, and while the soot and pollution that gave the city its nickname during the Industrial Revolution have mostly disappeared, there are plenty of reminders of days gone by - such as the warehouses and docks that line the Thames.
If you're looking for a Business Transformation Manager job in London, the city offers something for everyone. And, although the capital is known for its high cost of living, most employers take this into account when setting wages - in most cases, the so-called London allowance will add between £3,000 and £4,000 to your salary.
Whether your sector of choice is financial, media, retail, electronics, medical, manufacturing, telecommunications, transport, automotive or even government or defence, London has it.
From Ford to Sony, Barclays to Metro Newspapers and Sainsbury’s to Warburtons, the list of British, European and international firms that call London home goes on and on.
And don’t forget the companies that specialise in moving people and parcels around. With organisations like the Port of London and Transport for London, several international airports and trains that depart to domestic and international destinations, it takes a lot of people to keep London moving smoothly.
