Transformation Change Consultant - IT
- London, England, United Kingdom
- Permanent, Full time
- 10 Oct 18
The world faces energy challenges that are becoming more complex each day. We’re looking for people who share our passion for taking on those challenges with cutting edge technology, innovative thinking and a commitment to properly managed risk. Shell develops and operates some of the largest and most complex projects in the world and we always endeavour to work at the leading edge of technical innovation.
If you are a dedicated Change Management professional preferably with a consulting background, then this role is for you! This is a great development opportunity for someone who’s shown they can deliver technology-driven change – you’ll bring out the best in others, instill agile mindsets and help us to continually improve the way we bring change to the business.
Where you fit in
Shell is focused on aligning and simplifying IT systems to increase customer satisfaction and business value. As part of that, we’re building an in-house IT Transformational Change Capability that will partner closely with each area of the business to drive and embed IT change.
What’s the role?
Part of our Group CIO function, this is a delivery-focused role, leading IT-driven business change in a programme/project environment. Join us and you’ll engage with senior business and IT decision-makers to drive the change agenda, both leading and contributing to multiple change projects.
It’s a great developmental opportunity for someone on a career trajectory. On complex projects, you’ll be supported by a Transformational Change Manager. At other times, you’ll drive your own projects and develop your leadership skills, bringing out the best in junior change managers by mentoring, advising and coaching them. There’s great scope to make a positive impact on the way we work, helping to equip the business with the skills to better manage and sustain change.
It’s a refreshingly wide-ranging role; your responsibilities will include:
- Deploying measurable change management interventions and wider transformational change initiatives, usually in an Agile context.
- Staying abreast of external best practice in change management and sharing your insight with colleagues to facilitate knowledge sharing and build our Transformational Change capability.
- Contributing to developing Agile mindsets and behaviours.
What we need from you
First and foremost, we’re looking for someone who’s shown they can deliver technology-driven change and technology adoption. Knowledgeable in change management methods and their application, you’re confident conducting detailed change impact assessments and working with business colleagues to drive and sustain change – even where there’s high ambiguity. You’ll also need an understanding of Agile and its impact on the management of change. You'll also be fully mobile as this role may require some travel to Europe during the week in support of various projects.
It’s your personal skills that will make all the difference. You’re a natural relationship-builder and accomplished communicator, both in writing and in person – someone who’s shown they can cultivate fruitful stakeholder relationships at different organisational levels.
Shell is a company with shared values. Honesty, integrity, and respect aren't simply a strapline: they are a part of everything we do. What's more, Shell is an equal opportunities company, and we place the highest possible value on the diversity of our people and our inclusive approach.
Join us and you’ll belong to a world where you can feel pride in your achievements and propel your career with global opportunities
We care deeply about fostering a truly diverse workplace. We believe in doing everything we can to make Shell as flexible, appealing and supportive a place for women to work as possible. And we've retained our title as a top employer for women in the Times again in 2016.
We help with things like our formal (and informal) flexible working. Like our global and transparent pay policies backed by leadership team fully supportive of our diversity ambitions. And we'll help foster your career through our Women's Career Development programme and our extensive Women's Network.
