Global Change Lead – SAP S4 HANA

The Consultancy Group is collaborating with a prominent global manufacturing business headquartered in London, with strategic offices spanning Europe and Singapore. Over the past two decades, the organisation has executed a series of strategic acquisitions, resulting in a diversified portfolio of independently functioning entities. To establish operational cohesion and efficiency, the company is embarking on a comprehensive Finance Transformation Programme. This transformative initiative, spanning three years, is dedicated to seamlessly integrating these disparate businesses into a unified entity. The primary objective is the implementation of a standardised ERP system, particularly SAP S/4HANA, alongside streamlining associated processes. We are seeking a dynamic and experienced Global Change Lead to spearhead successful change initiatives within this critical programme.

  • Create and execute communication plans, ensuring stakeholders are informed of upcoming changes, milestones, and benefits.
  • Drive stakeholder engagement, building strong relationships with executives, managers, and end-users to gain buy-in and support for the transformation.
  • Lead efforts to identify potential resistance to change and develop strategies to address and mitigate resistance at all levels of the organisation.
  • Develop and deliver training programs to enable teams to effectively navigate the changes brought about by the SAP S/4HANA implementation.
  • Design and execute change impact assessments to identify potential risks, challenges, and areas requiring additional support.
  • Develop and implement methods to measure the success of change initiatives, gathering feedback and using data-driven insights to make continuous improvements.
  • Foster a culture of collaboration and innovation, encouraging teams to embrace change and contribute to process optimization.
  • Collaborate with project managers, functional leads, and IT teams to ensure alignment of change management activities with project timelines and goals.
  • Collaborate closely with the PMO to provide status updates, report progress, and highlight challenges related to change initiatives.


  • Substantial experience in change management, preferably within large-scale ERP implementation programmes.
  • Strong understanding of SAP S/4HANA and its impact on business processes, enabling effective alignment of change strategies.
  • Proven experience in developing and implementing change management strategies, plans, and initiatives across global organisations.
  • Proficiency in change management methodologies, tools, and best practices.
  • Excellent leadership and communication skills, with the ability to influence and inspire teams at all levels of the organisation.
  • Effective stakeholder management skills, capable of interfacing with executive leadership, functional teams, and end-users.
