Portfolio Manager - Sutherland

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 Sutherland

Sutherland sits at the head of mainland Britain, with Caithness to its east and Ross & Cromarty to its south. It has coastlines to its north, west and south-east. The county is large in area but small in population, its land mainly being used for agriculture. Sutherland is now part of the greater Highland council area. The county town is Dornoch (with a population of just over a thousand), down at eh south-eastern tip on the coast. The county is served by the A9 that runs up the east coast of northern Scotland, as well as the main railway to Inverness.

With such a sparse population, Portfolio Manager jobs and other such management and executive positions are quite uncommon in Sutherland itself. However, larger towns such as Inverness are an hours or so away by road from the southern parts of Sutherland, so focusing a job search in such towns might be a more fruitful option.
