The Change Manager will be predominantly responsible for communication, engagement and change activities, though will have support from a range of stakeholders including Project Managers, Product Managers, Release Train Engineers and training officers, among others.

The Clean Energy Regulator expects the Change Manager to display the following characteristics:

• A strong understanding of how people go through a change and the change process.

• Experience and knowledge of change management principles, methodologies and tools especially in relation to delivery of IT products and

• Exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal.

• Familiarity with Agile and Waterfall product development approaches, tools and phases of the project lifecycle.

• Experience with medium-scale organisational change efforts.
