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.

As one of the UK’s largest cities, Manchester has long been an important location in Britain’s industrial and economic pursuits - and here at Cast UK, we can help you find Programme Manager vacancies in this thriving metropolis.
By the 1500s, the city was known for its textile markets and wool trade. As canals were built over the next 200 years and cotton overtook wool as the material of choice, Manchester continued to grow in importance and population. During the 1800s with the birth of the Industrial Revolution, the city became a pivotal point in the British economy.
Today, it’s said that Manchester has been reborn, becoming a centre of culture and media. Indeed, with the BBC’s move to the north, it’s generally agreed that Manchester is the second city of the UK (although Birmingham may disagree). In addition to the BBC, Granada Television - an ITV franchise - is situated in the city and so is The Guardian newspaper’s head office.
Of course, there are plenty of other big employers operating out of Manchester as it is a major hub for finance, banking, insurance and logistics industries. Some of the big names in business operating out of Manchester are Thomas Cook, McVitie’s, Kellogg’s, Google and Stagecoach.
