Business Change Manager (Inside IR35)

Contract Term: Until December 2025         

Contracting Authority: The Home Office

Location: Hybrid Working (3 days per week office based - Croydon, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield or Solihull)


The first duty of Government is to protect the public. Since 1782, the Home Office has led work to keep the country safe from those who seek to do it harm; in doing so, we make a vital contribution to HM Government’s plan for a stronger, fairer, outward-looking and united Britain.

The Home Office covers three systems: Homeland Security, Public Safety and Borders, and Immigration and Citizenship. These systems work collaboratively to deliver our cross-cutting priorities, whilst providing increasingly efficient and secure services for the public. These are difficult areas that can rapidly change in the global environment we work in – this makes us one of the most exciting and stimulating government departments in which to work.


SC Clearance is an essential requirement for this role, as a minimum you must be eligible and willing to undergo these checks.

We are looking for Business Change Managers (BCMs) to work across a range of medium to large scale projects. You will play a leading role in ensuring that project change/ transition is planned and implemented in such a way that adverse impacts on the business are minimised.

You will coordinate, plan, advise on and deliver Business Change activity throughout the process until a successful transition to Business as Usual (BAU).

As a BCM, you will manage delivery of business change, working closely with programme / project managers and Business Change colleagues embedded within the business. This will include providing input into Benefits Realisation.

  • Benefits identification and mapping.
  • Identify stakeholders for inclusion in the stakeholder engagement plan.
  • Ability to work under broad direction in challenging and unpredictable environments.
  • Undertake other duties within the scope of grade and within the limits of skill competence/training as required.
  • Travel may be required to other Home Office locations.
  • The above lists of duties are not exhaustive, and the post holders may be required to undertake any of the above tasks or additional tasks not listed above to support the team.


You’ll have: 

  • Experience of delivering change plans and producing change management artefacts including stakeholder management plans, transition plans, adoption, and engagement plans.
  • Able to translate and simplify detailed information into a clear, concise format that is understandable for a wider audience.
  • Able to deliver clear and effective communications (written and verbal).
