Change. It’s happening everywhere at Swinton Insurance. It’s exciting. It’s ambitious. And as Change Delivery Manager you’ll be part of it all.

The Role

You’ll manage the initial set up of projects/programmes, ensuring necessary interface from a technical, process and organisational perspective with the wider portfolio agenda as well as ensuring projects/programmes are effectively and sufficiently resourced and appropriate controls are in place.
Guiding a team of project managers, you will embed a positive culture across the project management function through mentoring, leadership and continuous improvement.

What we’re looking for
An engaging, true business partner who lives and breathes change you will have experience of leading project and portfolio/programme delivery at a senior level and have developed large cross functional team in a transformation environment.
Utilising your strong planning and scheduling skills you’ll ensure the complex activities of interrelated project teams are controlled, co-ordinated and linked into the overall portfolio plan.
Experience of working with, building relationships and confidently challenging senior stakeholders is key, as will be your ability to produce and present clear and concise project plans and communications.
You’ll know the challenges of delivering new change programmes and be able to show where you have developed innovative solutions and worked collaboratively across a large business.
You’ll have a deep knowledge of the financial services industry with excellent awareness of relevant legal and regulatory issues and constraints.

In return you’ll be part of an ambitious business that’s always thinking ahead – defining, planning and building for a better future. You’ll have your own rewards & benefits package, a personal development plan and lots of opportunities to have input into the way you think they should be done.
As a Financial Services organisation we comply with and support the requirements set by our Regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which are designed to protect our customers. This means if your application is successful, you'll need to satisfy some important background checks before you can start working with us. These will include a full credit enquiry, a criminal record check, residency and right to work checks.
