The Transforming Research Support Programme has been initiated to transform the Research Lifecycle (from Opportunity to Publication and beyond) so that it delivers efficient support to Principal Investigators, Research Office and Departmental support staff.

This exciting role will provide change management and communication support to the programme.

The Senior Change Management Specialist will work to drive faster adoption, higher utilisation and greater proficiency of the changes that impact staff to increase benefit realisation and the achievement of results and outcomes. You will work closely with Cambridge Research Office, Principal Investigators, Departmental Administrators and other stakeholders to collectively champion a shift in working practice.

Organisations are increasingly understanding the value and importance of focussing on the people side of change in transformational work. You will help: to clearly articulate the drivers for and intended outcomes of transformation; to identify resistance to change and proactively address this; to help individual staff understand and support change; to help line managers support their staff through change and address resistance to change; to ensure sponsorship and leadership is coordinated and tailored across an organisation to best effect change; to provide staff with the knowledge of what the change means for them and their work, and why this is important for the organisation; to coordinate training and information to enable staff to have ability to adopt changes in working practice; and to reinforce change to enable and realise intended benefits and outcomes. 

You will also be responsible for programme communications, leading on creating strategy, plans and content to support programme activities.

This role is based in University Information Services, but very much a university-wide role working closely with the Cambridge Research Office, as the key areas affected by the transformation are the Universities Schools, Faculties and Departments.
