The Role

Trueman Change are a management consultancy who help public sector organisations to change the way they work.  We are passionate about improving public services and our values-based approach and high-quality portfolio of case studies has built our reputation as a trusted change management consultancy that organisations enjoy working with.  We are a small dynamic team, located all over the UK and we work from home, so there is no day-to-day stress of having to travel to work. 

Because we are outcomes driven, we adopt a flexible hour’s approach, which enables us to work around other commitments and create a good work-life balance.  We work at pace, and are ambitious to grow, and are looking for someone hungry and driven to join us!  Is this you?

The post-COVID 19 UK public sector is dealing with a lot of change; grant funding delivery, place-based leadership and decentralisation, as well as the day to day challenges of running a public organisation. This is where we come in. We work mainly with the public sector, but we are open to helping any organisations that need us.

We need someone to join our team to help our clients be better at setting up programme delivery. If successful, you will be working with our team to help organisations implement and deliver programme management in a structured and positive way. You’ll produce project management documents, help us to provide good governance, and introduce change management techniques.

We’re a small business, so this job is a bit jack of all trades, some project management, some change management and lots of keeping organised! You’ll also have chance to support our growth by helping to grow our network and working on bids for new work and marketing content/materials. 

 

Our Values

We are driven by our values. Yeah, lots of companies say that, but we really are! So we’re looking for people who share the same values as us. When recruiting, we ask “do we share values” before we ask “do you have the skills we need”.

Our values are:

  1. Get it done – no time for procrastination here, we commit to action and we deliver! 
  2. Get it right – our work has integrity, we don’t fluff it, we can stand by what we do. 
  3. Make it better – we specialise in change, so we are always, always striving to make things better and make a difference. 
  4. Make friends – our success so far is down to our ability to make friends and build trust. We act with our client’s best interests at heart, and proactively grow our network constantly.  
  5. Be your best – our most important value. We strive to grow, learn and develop all the time, it’s a hunger within us. Members of the Trueman Change team take responsibility for their own development and bring their best to the table. 

 

Our Dream Person

In terms of skills, we’re looking for a self-starter, someone who can work on their own initiative. We aim to make it better for our clients, so we’re looking for people who can quickly get to grips with an issue and make clear, positive recommendations for change, then help our clients to deliver them. You will be an excellent networker – our business thrives on the relationships we’ve built, you will be able to demonstrate that you’ve done the same in your career. You’ll have an excellent understand of project management and/or change management in the public sector, with experience from a range of organisations. 

As for us, we’re ambitious to grow so we’re looking for people who want to grow with us. You should also be aware that we work hard to improve ourselves and the way we work constantly, so you’ll always be challenged to build on what you’re learning.
