Whether you work directly with clients or manage important internal initiatives and efforts, you’ll find amazing opportunities to make a measurable difference.
The team leads change programs across the UKI and the rest of the world. These programs often stem from the insights provided by analytics identifying opportunities to drive business improvements, policy compliance or address broader business risks.
Whilst the role involves working with business data (alongside qualitative policy, legal, best practice or tax information) the more critical skill is an ability to lead and deliver in an agile change environment.  Driving wide-reaching change programmes and combining core change management skills with an eye for detail and an ability to move from analytics to action.   
Exceptional communication, stakeholder and change management skills and attention to detail are key to both the team and the role’s success.  Work is typically high-paced, agile and challenging as it constantly covers new areas of the business. 
It best suits somebody who thrives on dealing with business problems, can think strategically and not just accept information or the answer ‘this is the way things have always been done’.   It is key to be able to both communicate and simplify complex concepts, whilst understanding the fine detail and numbers behind them.  It is also critical to be a good listener in order avoid missing important information from other parts of the business.
Programmes often require creativity and offer opportunities to learn about many different areas of the business, from Legal to HR or Finance to Real Estate.  Areas often have competing priorities, so the proven ability to influence and team with extended and remote colleagues, to ensure a successful project outcome, is essential.
