6-month contract

The Microsoft 365 project requires an experienced person for the role of Business Change Manager to proactively prepare staff for the changes that are being delivered by the Microsoft 365 Project, in particular the move to TEAMS. The resource must understand business change and benefits across a complex project such as Microsoft 365, and MUST have experience of a TEAMs implementation. Microsoft have advised that delivering TEAMs technically will be relatively straightforward. However, the Business change element and communication with users, applying the best approach to carry this out is an area we are lacking in experience. Microsoft made it clear this is a key area required to make the delivery successful. This role is even more critical especially whilst remote working and staff being heavily dependent on Skype which will be replaced by TEAMS. In 2021 we will be implementing TEAMS & Channels, and this will impact significantly on the way staff work and interact with other Microsoft features such as SharePoint, OneDrive, Exchange to name a few
