Portfolio Manager - East Sussex

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 East Sussex

Bordered by Kent, Surrey and West Sussex, East Sussex is a ceremonial county in the south-east that is situated on the English Channel. It comprises communities like Eastbourne, Brighton and Hove, Hastings and Newhaven, and offers a variety of opportunities for those seeking Portfolio Manager jobs.

In the 5th century, the South Saxons settled in the region that would later become known as Sussex, although archaeological evidence suggests that humans and their ancient predecessors may have been living in the region for more than 400,000 years.

During the 16th and early 17th centuries, glass making was an important part of the East Sussex economy, although this mainly died out in the 1600s as competition with the East Midlands took over.

These days, East Sussex is a popular tourist destination and much of its economy is based in the service sector and retail.

Brighton is home to a number of financial services companies, including the European headquarters of American Express. Other companies include the Body Shop, and various media and tech companies have moved to the area since the 1990s.
