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.

Located 18 miles (30 km) south east of Bristol and directly across the Bristol Channel from Cardiff, Weston-super-Mare is a popular seaside resort that benefited hugely when the railways came its way in the 1800s. Its strange name comes from the Anglo-Saxon “west tun” (west settlement) and the Latin “super mare” meaning upon sea. One of the most influential engineers of all time, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, also used to live there, proving that peculiar names must be in the water – and probably explaining why a sleepy village got a railway!
The town did have some industry in the past. The Westland aircraft company, which was based in Yeovil, had its helicopter manufacturing and maintenance plant in Weston-super-Mare. The company is famous for its Wessex, Sea King, Puma and Lynx military, coastguard and rescue helicopter. One of the most famous helicopter pilots in the world (no, not Noel Edmonds), Prince William, pilots Sea Kings. The factory closed down in 2002, and Weston-super-Mare is now home to The Helicopter Museum.
Weston-super-Mare’s economy is mainly focused on tourism, but there is some industry and distribution activity in the area, partly due to its location as the gateway to the South West. Discount supermarket Lidl has its southern distribution centre there, and there is some other light industry in the town. While it may not seem the first place you’d look for a Implementation Lead job, they do come up from time to time, and there will always be a demand in nearby Bristol too.
