Head of Business Change - Runcorn
Head of Business Change Jobs
All successful businesses embrace change as an essential part of the growth process. Sometimes it can be difficult to achieve, with resistance from within and without, but when it’s done well the benefits will be felt by the company for years, or decades, to come. But change needs to be managed, and that is where the head of business change plays such a vital role. He or she oversees the process from identifying weaknesses in the business model right through to monitoring the effects of any changes that have been applied.
The head of business change has widely varying roles depending on the size and nature of the business. In smaller companies, he or she may have a directorial role and may oversee a handful of employees or managers as change is implemented. In a larger company, the head of business change could be making cultural or systemic changes that are worth millions and affect thousands of employees, making it a hugely influential and important position.
The skills required
The best heads of business change have experience in project management and delivery. Even if the job does not require those skills directly, it’s likely that you will be working closely with project managers to ensure change takes place at a manageable rate, and an insight into how they work is invaluable. You are going to need excellent communication skills as you will often be receiving information from the board and delivering the message right the way down the hierarchy in a manner that suits them so that they can best understand and implement the changes required.
You need to be able to analyse and project cause and effect based on the best possible information so that the changes you are proposing or implementing can be measured and their success can be assessed. Experience within the sector occupied by the company seeking a head of business change is advantageous, as every industry has its own way of working and you should also be better placed to identify trends that add up to the necessity for change.

Head of Business Change Jobs in Runcorn
It might be difficult to imagine it now, but Runcorn was once a celebrated spa town and health retreat right up to the Industrial Revolution, whereupon its prime location made its industrialisation rapid. The town is located on the south bank of the River Mersey just before it flows east to the Wirral peninsula and Liverpool. The last bridge over the Mersey passes between Runcorn and Widnes; it is a railway bridge directly adjacent to the impressive steel-arch bridge that takes advantage of a natural outcrop, but still has a single span of 330m. For a time there were three crossings, including a transporter bridge, but this was dismantled in 1961. A brand new crossing has been planned which will ease congestion on the roads.
Runcorn’s main industry has always been, and remains, chemicals. Chlorine, caustic soda, hydrogen and polymers have been produced there for over a hundred years. The town is served by a mainline railway (Liverpool to London) and no fewer than three canals – the Manchester Ship, the Bridegwater and the Weaver Navigation. The town had a busy dockyard up until the post-war period, when it fell into decline.
The town remains an industrial and commercial hub in the immediate vicinity, with several large industrial estates, trading estates and retail parks in and around the town, thanks to massive regeneration efforts in the 1970s and 1980s. Runcorn has a large new town that was built to house the overspill from Liverpool. With the M56 to Manchester, links to Liverpool and Chester and a good rail and waterway network, there are several distribution centres in and around the town, making Runcorn an excellent place to look for Head of Business Change work.
