Work history

About me

I am a change specialist, particularly IT-enabled business change and transformation. I have a wealth of knowledge across project management, including business analysis, defining project governance and communications strategy, stakeholder management, risk & issue management, project planning and financial reporting and budget control. 

I have managed in a wide variety of industries and work environments, delivering projects with both technical teams, Operations and back-office business functions like HR, Training, and Finance. I have a very broad and diverse understanding of how IT services and business change related to that fits in with business success, strategy planning and resolving business issues and reducing risk.

I have ardent belief that well-planned, well-communicated change is a crucial a part of success of any organisation, and is the seed that leads to growth and improvement for the business and the staff who work within it.

I want to share my ability to lead and plan change; I would like to volunteer to help organisations reach goals and dreams that were perhaps out of reach and be an advocate for how change can be a positive, challenging and enriching experience. 

 

What am I looking for

I want to provide my skills to organisations who are looking to manage any kind of change or transformation 

Personal interests include:

  • foreign language learning (I speak French & Spanish)
  • bumblebee conservation
  • vintage fashion and the power of secondhand to reduce waste and contribute positively to the reduction of waste and landfill - I sell vintage fashion online with the aim to provide a viable alternative to new -  https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/hannahandfrancesjane
