The Future programme will drive change across the whole organisation where we'll touch every single one of our 140,000 colleagues over the next three years. To drive this programme we're building a Change Management function from scratch who will be accountable for assessing the level of change, types of change and developing functional implementation plans to prepare the business for the activity we will be landing. We are recruiting for a number of change management roles to partner with different business areas such as eCommerce, Finance, Commercial, People, Technology and Retail. Experience in working on large scale, complex transformation programmes is essential.


You'll join the team on an 18-month fixed term position, but we will have other exciting opportunities to apply for along the way.


Your Role

  • Convert impacts into an action plan which is relevant for their area
  • Develop and present action plans and interventions to the VP leads for their function/s as well as the leadership of the tower in order to gain buy-in, stress test the approach and take builds
  • Work closely with business SMEs to translate action plans and impact plans into relevant communication material suitable for the audience
  • Feed into the training team any training needs required and partner with the training team on the training and implementation strategy
  • Able to run change upskilling sessions and manage a large group of SMEs as they move into implementation phase
  • Be ‘on the ground' during implementation pivoting the change, training and comms approach as required
  • Beyond implementation, monitor the adoption of new behaviours and ways of working to make sure they are embedded into functions
  • Create and implement resistance management plan
  • Create and integrate change management project tasks into overall project plan


About You

  • Previous experience in delivering large scale change in HR/People Programmes is essential
  • Experience in Change Management with the ability to create and implement change management approach and industry standard methodology.
  • Strong stakeholder management skills at all levels.
  • A deep understanding of change methodology, why it matters and how to influence change
  • PROSCI or similar change training would be advantageous along with Agile experience (desirable and not essential)
  • Experience in Workday is desirable
