Having great plans for any project is only half the battle – plans need to be put into action and it needs to be done well with oversight and continuous monitoring. This is where the implementation lead is a useful stage in the project’s personnel structure. They have a simple goal – to make sure the plans that need to be completed have enough staffing, time and resources to happen on budget. They often work alongside senior project managers, who rely on them to realise their specific project elements in line with the strategic aims of the company.
In some companies the implementation lead is the equivalent to a board level employee, and has decision-making powers or at least the ability to influence the board. Other companies treat the implementation lead as a team leadership role, with the experience to see tasks through to completion but receiving specific instructions from a manager or director.
Implementation leads are usually drawn from the ranks of team leaders and project managers to focus on specific activities, for example a design, a model, and idea, a specification, a standard or a policy. Whereas the project manager and/or director is often focused on the bigger picture, the implementation lead will more likely be working directly with the employees who are putting those plans into action. That means the implementation lead has to be a great communicator and has to be able to deal with employees at all rungs of the ladder.
Experience in the appropriate sector will naturally count for a lot in your search for an implementation lead role. However, management experience is not always a pre-requisite for some companies, who would value your deep understanding of the discipline you are implementing more highly, as long as you can demonstrate an aptitude for giving and taking instruction.
Companies with big plans need excellent implementation leads to steer and manage their strategy to completion. If you have experience with project management or working in a sector where implementation is a specialized job, there could be employers looking for someone just like you right now.

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 Implementation Lead job in Lincoln, look no further than Cast UK.
