Portfolio Manager - Fareham

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 Fareham

The market town of Fareham lies towards the south of Hampshire, with Gosport to its south, Portsmouth to the south east and Southampton 10 miles (15 km) to the west. The south east of the town touches Fareham Lake, which forms the port of Portsmouth and Gosport, but at this point it is only navigable by small craft, and the marina has plenty of them on show.

As well as having historic links to the maritime centres to its south and west, Fareham carved out a reputation as a master of the clay-based industries, making bricks, tiles and chimney pots with their distinctive red hue. Although they are used all over the country, the most famous building made of Fareham red brick is the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Fareham is seen as a slightly more upmarket place to live than the port towns and cities nearby. It is well connected by road, rail and sea, and has lots of green space and the beautiful Hampshire countryside to the north. It has also become quite a notable centre for light industry and retail, with several retail areas and a technology park in the town.
