Change Delivery Lead Ref. 1996
Shape a deeper level of intelligence
MI6 is the UK's foreign human intelligence agency. As the threat evolves, so must we. The curiosity, insight and intuition of our people is critical. Creating efficiencies, new approaches and technology, they’re all helping us keep ahead of our adversaries. Now, to help us continue to adapt and grow, we're looking for the country's best Change Delivery Leads.
About the role
Change has become the new normal, and that makes it an exciting time to join us. As our Change Delivery Lead, you’ll be assigned to a dedicated change programme, where it will be your job to ensure that the interests of our customers are met. You’ll define and shape an environment in which the quality of delivery is prioritised and measured, managing a blended delivery team.
You’ll articulate the change and business analysis approach, and develop the benefits realisation strategy. Another key aspect of your role will be to deconflict change priorities, and to actively manage and resolve risks and issues. Where requirements are particularly complex, you will lead change management and business analysis activities and interventions.
You’re qualified in change management or business analysis, and you’ve operated successfully in a variety of agile environments. You’re familiar with a range of change and business analysis methodologies and frameworks, and you’re always quality focused. You know what ‘great’ looks like, as well as how to lead and inspire a blended team to deliver.
Crucially, you’re comfortable with influencing senior customers and stakeholders to support your plans. You can persuade them of the value of robust change management. In addition, you’re highly organised and able to plan across both the short and medium-term. You enjoy problem-solving but know when to step in to resolve an issue, and when to step back and let others determine the course of action.
What we’ll offer you
Working in MI6 will give you challenge, inspiration and a real sense of purpose to your work. You’ll be enabled and supported to make a real difference in a truly unique environment.
We take learning seriously at MI6, so you’ll benefit from a broad range of development and training opportunities. From the moment you join, you’ll be supported to understand what we do and how we do it, including how we operate overseas. We support flexible working arrangements and actively encourage a healthy life/work balance. We value professional skills, and offer candidates an additional allowance which reflects the importance we place on change management and business analysis.
To apply to MI6, you must be a born or naturalised British citizen, over 21 years old and normally have been based in the UK for six of the last ten years. You should not discuss your application with anyone other than your partner or a close family member providing that they are British. They should also be made aware of the importance of discretion.
MI6 strives for diversity in the workplace and is committed to the creation and maintenance of a climate in which all staff are treated fairly on the grounds of merit and ability.
