A Business Analyst skillset will include competence in requirements gathering, stakeholder management, process mapping and documentation. Their skillset can be enhanced by achieving certifications in methodologies such as Agile and Lean Six Sigma, and often these certifications are more attractive to Hiring Managers.

Project & Programme Managers

Project Managers or Programme Managers will have a crucial responsibility to oversee project progression, ensuring delivery success. They will use various techniques, tools, processes and methods to manage development, align expectations and improve communication between all parties involved. Therefore, fantastic communication and relationship management are key to succeeding in these roles. 

Common roles in these areas are: 

  • Project Manager 

  • Programme Manager / Director

  • PMO Manager

  • Delivery Manager

  • SCRUM Master  

  • Transformation Manager  

Some organisations may prefer to hire Project or Programme Managers who are competent with Prince 2 or Agile methodologies if they are using these methods in the development of their projects.

Change Managers

During a time of transformation, organisations will require Change Managers to support employees and stakeholders feel comfortable with the introduction of new systems, services or processes, to establish a maximum return on investment. Change Managers will often have competencies in change principles and methodologies.

Hiring Managers will often hire Change Managers such as: 

  • Business Change Analyst

  • Change Manager

  • Head of Change

  • Communications Lead

To succeed in this role, effective communication is essential, to build trust across stakeholders and business leaders as they buy-in to the change being implemented.

Product Manager & Product Owners

Product Managers and Product Owners have expertise across the product lifecycle. They will help across the product end-to-end process, by initially creating product vision based on business needs and then help production of the product. In the IT space, they will use market knowledge to uncover business opportunities in potential digital products, services, or software.

Product Managers and Product Owners will collaborate across different teams, such as Developer or Architects to communicate the product roadmap and define the overall goal.

Business Manager

Business Managers will work to oversee the front office and the sales business operation, ensuring workforce productivity is high and efficient. In Finance, many Business Managers will have background experience in operations and finance, or perhaps have taken a step down from a Sales or Trader position.

As a customer-facing position, they will be responsible for communication with external regulators and traders on the business's activities, operation workflows and budget forecasting.
