This practice will work to drive rapid adoption of new technology, reduce performance dips, accelerate time to value and better equip the business to accept and embed ongoing change. These Senior Transformational Change Manager roles are expert level positions, reporting to a member of the Transformational Change leadership team within the Group CIO function. You'll focus on delivery to lead IT-driven business change in a programme or project environment to support the change required by Shell’s IT simplification agenda.

What's the role?

You'll engage with senior business and IT leaders and executives, IT Managers and Programme and Project Managers, to drive the change agenda.

As an Account Lead, you'll define and direct the strategic outcomes for the account and direct and assure the delivery work of all transformational change resources working on the account.

You will lead and run a change programme or or multiple change projects, partnering with IT Programme and Project managers to drive business value and business outcomes through measurable change management and business transformation interventions, for both traditional and Agile deliveries.

You'll use your leadership skills to advise, coach, manage, and mentor more junior change managers to build the capability.

Collaboration is essential as you'll work closely with peers leading change across other areas of Shell’s business, including other related departments, OD/OE, Internal Communications, Learning and Continuous Improvement.

As a senior member of the IT Business Transformation Capability, you can be a part of creating an environment where members feel motivated, engaged, connected, able to perform to high levels, and to grow and develop in their professional careers.
