Companies who are taking business change and transformation seriously make sure they have the most important element at its heart: a great team. And while the programme director or the board in general steer the programme and make the key global decisions, they need exemplary managers to work alongside the C&T team to ensure it is delivered. Overseeing the team or part of the team is the job of programme managers.
Depending on the size and nature of the company, the scope of the team in place and the changes or transformations the company is undergoing, the programme manager oversees a single workstream or several simultaneously. They are the link between the employees performing the change and the board, and as such have an important role in reporting problems as well as successes, and also have a consultative role from above and below. The smooth, efficient running of a C&T programme depends upon good programme managers ensuring those workstreams are flowing as smoothly as possible.
Previous management of workstreams in a business change and transformation context will almost always be required of the programme manager, although some companies will promote promising C&T team leaders to management positions if they can demonstrate advanced aptitude and experience in the same sector. You need to be organized and able to deal with complex, ever-changing facts and figures on the ground and interpret them into actionable insights.
As with all intermediate mangers, your communication skills must be excellent. You can receive anything from detailed instructions to an overall goal from the board, depending on the arrangement, and those instructions are filtered through you into the team. You need to be adept at sharing relevant information in a clear and concise way and to be available and approachable enough to take instruction, advice and queries well from both directions.

The largest city in South West England, Bristol is a centre of commerce, culture and education and it has long been associated with sea travel, with the Port of Bristol being a major economic boon to the area.
Situated on the Bristol Channel at the mouth of the Avon River, Bristol also shares a bit of the Severn Estuary coastline. By the 12th century, the city was an important point for the shipping industry, especially for trade with Ireland (and later Iceland and France) and it quickly grew to become one of England's largest medieval towns.
Along with Liverpool, Bristol was one of main ports in the UK involved in the Triangle Trade and the list of commodities that were exchanged includes cloth and textiles, glass, fish, wine and grain. As the years passed, other industries began to expand, including manufacturing, engineering and transport.
Today, Bristol is a thriving community with plenty of opportunities for those seeking Programme Manager vacancies in the area.
One of the city's major employers is Defence Equipment & Support, which works to procure everything from ships and aircraft, through to munitions, technology and communications equipment for the MoD.
Other companies based in Bristol include Bristol Commercial Vehicles, BAE Systems and Orange UK.
