Business Design and Change Manager

£42,720 to £46,635 per annum

Permanent, 37 hours per week

Location: County Hall

Ref: 67251 CHPE


Our transformation agenda in Norfolk Children’s Service is succeeding for children and young people. With a growing track record of successful projects and further large scale change underway, this is an opportunity to be part of our highly skilled team with the focus to drive forward transformation at pace.


Now is a fantastic moment to join our agenda:

  • you have the support from and direct access to our senior leaders who are open to new ideas and people who think differently
  • we have a substantial investment fund to deploy and a mandate to make change happen
  • you would be joining a strong and growing transformation team with a great reputation
  • there are major programmes in place with significant momentum, but also substantial scope to develop new schemes, projects and concepts from the ground up


As a Business Design and Change Manager, you will challenge the status quo and generate ideas through insight across Norfolk County Council and externally, using facilitation and innovation tools to prompt the flow of ideas and generate positivity about change.


You will convert ideas into ambitious proposals to formulate strong, evidence based and robust business cases, with confidence in the idea to secure sign off. You will build squads that will drive development and delivery and will initiate handover to business as usual at the optimum time.

Appropriate challenge and support to senior managers, business and workstream leads is a key part of this role. You will coach colleagues in business design and change techniques to develop a transformational culture and ethos in children’s services.


With a track record of change management and leadership, you will evidence your creativity in developing new solutions, applying concepts from one area to another and making it happen.  As a strong communicator and influencer, you will build energy around the agenda with financial acumen to understand financial triggers in a complex organisation.


Public or private sector – you will be the ideas person with exceptional change and transformation skills. You’ll have the intellectual curiosity to systematically change outcomes for children and young people.


All our office-based roles are currently working from home as part of our Smarter Working plans and to support the health and safety of all our colleagues. We anticipate that working remotely will be a key feature of this role and when offices re-open your office base will be County Hall, Norwich. Our technology platform and equipment are first class enabling you to connect and collaborate remotely. We ask that you have in place good Broadband connectivity.
