Job Description

About the role

Change Management Officers can bring different specialist skillsets to focus on the impact of change. They aim to minimise the negative effects and maximise the benefits of organisational change. This often involves focusing on the 'human factors' of change - identifying the impact on people, achieving 'readiness' for change, and mitigating risks to adoption and usage. It also includes working as part of a multidisciplinary team to ensure good project communications and good project engagement to drive overarching project success.

The Information Services Division provides both a waterfall and agile approach to organisational change management, each with supporting tools and templates. The resource is expected to use these to create consistency, increase change management maturity and deliver rapid, fit-for-purpose adoption and usage solutions. Change Management officers are supported in their role and will not necessarily be in a 'lead' position, therefore we encourage all applicants with strong skillsets in the following areas to apply:

  • Organisational Change Management (emerging through to experienced)
  • Change Impact Analysis and the identification of Change Particulars
  • Change-Communications and mapping of Change Stories
  • Learning and Support Solutions
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Workforce Management and Design

Resources will form part of the Information Services Division Change Management Competency and be allocated as required to project teams. At times resources are used across multiple projects based on the skillset required during the project phases.
