Programme Manager - West Bromwich

Programme Manager Jobs

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.

The skills required

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.

Programme Manager Jobs in West Bromwich

Only five miles north-west of Birmingham, West Bromwich is a large town that offers a number of options for those seeking Programme Manager roles.

For hundreds of years, West Bromwich was mainly an agricultural area and the town first rose to prominence during the 19th century when deposits of coal were discovered in the region.

It grew quickly as a coal mining town and associated industries also arrived. Indeed, the area became known as the Black Country due to the smoke and soot that resulted.

Until the latter half of the 20th century, West Bromwich's economy was based mainly on manufacturing, with one of its main products being metalwork for the automotive industry. Textiles and chemicals were also produced.

The town suffered significant job losses during the 1970s, as more and more factories were moved to locations abroad in order to make use of cheaper workforces.

Today, West Bromwich's economy is mainly based in retail and the service sector; this is particularly due to recent investments to regenerate the area - with large shopping centres like Queen's Square. West Bromwich Building Society has been based in the town for more than 160 years, while the region's main employers are based in the public sector, including Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council.

Manufacturing, however, does still play a part in the local economy, with products including building supplies and technology.
