Change Managers

When going through a period of transformation, organisations may hire Change Managers to help employees adapt and feel comfortable with new processes, systems or a service that is being implemented, to ensure maximum return on investment.

Common hires within this space are:

Effective communication is key in change management, as they will need to build trusted relationships across various stakeholders and business leaders, so they will be on board for the change being implemented.

They will create product vision that a businesses’ customers can benefit from and assist in the production of the desired product. Within IT, this may refer to a digital product, service, or software.

Product management is a very collaborative position, working with different teams, such as Developers or Architects, to communicate the product goal and ensure progress from each team aligns with the product roadmap. It is highly beneficial to have specialist market knowledge to anticipate customer need for future business strategy. 

Business Manager 

Business Managers are responsible for front office business and the sales business operations, to ensure workforce productivity is at a high-level. As a customer-facing role, they will communicate with traders and external regulators on business activities, budget forecasting and operation workflows. 

In the Finance industry, many Business Managers have a background in operations and finance, or, alternatively have taken a step down from a Trader or Sales position.
