Key Tasks and Deliverables:

We are looking for 3 Business Change Managers to play a key role in supporting the delivery of change initiatives in the function. Defence is embarking on a new approach to transformation that will best support this mobilise / modernise / transform agenda by developing stronger cross-cutting Functions to address today’s challenges and future threats. A number of candidate transformation programmes were initially identified; one of these was People. The People Transformation Programme is now growing and its vision is to deliver Defence People who are motivated, engaged and committed to Vacancy Validation Template v1.1 30 July 2018 Confidential – AMS Defence and whose talents are integrated in the delivery of Defence outputs.

To enable this vision we are delivering two strands: a Defence People Portfolio and a strengthened Defence People Function. We now require additional inhouse support to enable developments to move ahead at pace in these two areas. The three Business Change Managers will join an existing team of 4 (1 Deputy Head – Change, 2 existing Business Change Managers and a Business Change Specialist). The three Business Change Managers will support the development and delivery of the business change work required across the developing People Transformation Function in a number of areas; with the new People Portfolio, the People Projects within it and the wider People Transformation Programme.

The Business Change Managers will work closely with project teams and maintain a detailed understanding of the team’s tasks and activity across multiple projects, including status, release dates, issues/risks, business readiness, and report adoption status to various stakeholders. The role will design and deliver targeted interventions to ensure the groups impacted are meaningfully engaged, supported and upskilled to adopt the change. The role will champion best practice in change management, and provide expert advice for team members and the project/change community. The role will identify risks and design and deliver mitigation strategies and interventions to support successful adoption of change. The role will report to the Senior Business Change Manager.
