Portfolio Manager - Basildon
Portfolio Manager Jobs
Business change and transformation has to be thoroughly planned, organized and monitored during execution if they are to be successful and efficient. A team needs to be put together, and progress needs to be regularly reported to the board. In many companies the portfolio manager is the person with these responsibilities. They oversee several workstreams or perhaps an entire company’s ongoing programmes, depending on its size.
The portfolio manager is also a line manager of the team putting the programme into action, including its analysts. How or she is in regular contact with these practitioners and acts as the channel of communication between the process staff and the board. Because he or she is in charge of several workstreams, they also need to monitor how they influence and interact with each other. The job carries a good deal of responsibility as the head of process.
The skills required
Portfolio managers are highly experienced business change and transformation professionals, and companies need to see a solid track record of delivery of multiple simultaneous workstreams to qualify for the position. You need a methodical and logical mindset too, as you are overseeing workstreams that could be distant geographically or in terms of physical similarities, where confusion can sink portfolio managers who are not on top of things.
Experience of managing portfolios in the same sector as the job advertised will be a distinct advantage, as differences between sectors can make a huge difference to how a project is managed. While most companies demand experience in a management role, others recognize that managers have to start somewhere and are looking for experienced deputies, senior staff and other such positions so they can absorb them into their own company structures.

Portfolio Manager Jobs in Basildon
Situated in Essex, around 25 miles from central London, Basildon was established as a new town in 1948. Since then it has been a popular choice for those who commute to the capital on a daily basis, and it is one of the most populated regions in the county. It also offers a range of options for those seeking Portfolio Manager vacancies.
Basildon is first mentioned in the Domesday Book, but it remained a fairly small settlement until the 19th century when railway services connected it to other parts of Essex. It wasn't until after the end of WWII that it really began to grow, incorporating nearby Laindon and Pitsea as part of the new town.
These days, Basildon is classified as part of the Thames Gateway and is thus undergoing significant regeneration, with the construction of new homes and work being carried out to town centre and road infrastructure. In 2010, Basildon's own version of the Hollywood sign was erected and the local council is working on a scheme for developing the industrial areas.
For the most part, Basildon's economy relies on retail and the service sector, with the largest employer being the local council. However, a number of larger companies are based here or have large facilities in the region, including IFDS Financial, Ford, SELEX, MK Electric, Konica Minolta and Gardner Aerospace.
