Portfolio Manager - Peeblesshire

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 Peeblesshire

Historically, Peeblesshire was a county in southern Scotland, surrounded by Midlothian, Selkirkshire, Dumfriesshire and Lanarkshire. Its county town was Peebles. The county is now absorbed into the Scottish Borders county area, but its locals will often still identify themselves as inhabitants of Peeblesshire. Peebles itself has a population of around 10,000 and is surrounded by the rolling hills of southern Scotland. Peeblesshire was generally an agricultural county.

Peebles, and the county area, are linked to Edinburgh and Glasgow by the A703 and A72 respectively, and A-roads head south to Carlisle and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. With no major concentrations of population in the Peeblesshire area, Portfolio Manager jobs could be hard to find because of the lack of major infrastructure; however, whenever there are needs to be met and goods to deliver, and agriculture certainly has both qualifications, jobs in supply chain, logistics and procurement often follow.
