Portfolio Manager - Bognor Regis

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 Bognor Regis

Like most of the seaside resorts in the UK, Bognor Regis (originally simply called Bognor) started out as a self-sustaining fishing village that linked to market towns in the vicinity. The Victorian era saw a massive interest in the health benefits of “sea air” and bathing, and the traditional seaside resort that we know and love today was born. Bognor Regis had a particularly good time of it, becoming a regular haunt of the royals and their entourages, which rendered an air of exclusivity that the other resorts could only dream of. The railway came in the shape of a special branch in the London to Portsmouth line, and Bognor Regis started to attract visitors from without the aristocratic connections, and as time went on and workers’ rights became stronger and wages grew, the resort became a favourite of the holidaying working class.

Located 19 miles (30 km) to the east of Portsmouth, 23 miles (37 km) to the west of Brighton and 4 miles (7 km) south east of the cathedral city of Chichester, Bognor Regis is a relatively small town with a resident population of around 25,000. In the summer months, of course, this swells massively as tourists come to fill the hotels, B&Bs and the famous Butlin’s holiday camp. Many of its inhabitants will commute to the city or nearby towns for work, but the populace is economically active, which is why Portfolio Manager jobs might sometimes come up in the town or the surrounding area.
