What’s the Job?
As Business Readiness Lead your key role is to lead, manage and deliver change for staff by ensuring the business is ready to accept and absorb change.

In addition, the team overall must have an extensive understanding of what changes are happening throughout the business so that they can assess the ability to absorb change at the rate that is being requested of them. To support this, you will develop a thorough understanding of the Organisational Change Programme, identify cross-cutting impacts that affect Directorates and seek solutions to mitigate these.
