Portfolio Manager - Slough
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 Slough
Located in Berkshire, Slough is 22 miles west of London and ten miles from Heathrow airport. The borough is well-placed for travel to other parts of the country - or indeed other parts of the world - and it offers a wide range of options for those seeking Portfolio Manager vacancies.
Until the 1800s, Slough was mainly an agricultural area with apple orchards and plant nurseries. It was also known for brick manufacture. In fact, the blocks used to build Eton College all came from Slough. However, after the Great Western Railway was built, this part of the economy began to decline and industry was on the rise.
The Slough Trading Estate was established in 1920 and was one of the earliest examples of this kind of commercial property in the UK. At the time, it was used for repairing and reselling ex-army vehicles, after the first world war, and was home to a number of factories.
Since the mid 1990s, Slough's economy has shifted from manufacturing to information technology and the majority of the factories have since been shut down and replaced with offices.
Today, the Slough Trading Estate is the largest of its type in Europe, with more than 600 buildings, 500 companies and around 20,000 people working there on a daily basis. Current resident businesses include Mars, Fiat, LG, Ferrari, Fullers Logistics, Stanley Black and Decker and Telefonica O2.
In addition, Slough is home to various financial and business services organisations, while health and education are also responsible for a significant portion of the region's employment opportunities.
