Head of Business Change


At Pets at Home Group we’re developing technology to transform pet care. Join us and work on amazing change focussed projects that will help shape, build and deliver our next-generation holistic pet care service. By joining us you’ll create new ways to support pets and their owners to live happier lives together.


As the Head of Business Change, you’ll be at the heart of the group, supporting the organisation to embrace change whilst also supporting the Portfolio and Project teams with change related best practice.


This is a function in its infancy and as such the successful Head of Change will have a wide scope of autonomy to shape, lead and grow the function as we create a full Change Framework and Toolkit to deliver across the Pets at Home Group.


You will lead the following areas of the Portfolio within the Change function:

  • Change Capability
  • Benefits Realisation and Communication
  • Change Readiness
  • Leading / Sustaining Business Change


You’ll have strong leadership skills with the ability to provide direction and co-ordination to their team engaged on a wide range of change and developmental activities.

This also includes the ability to understand and respond to the complex demands and requirements of a large organisation whilst establishing coherent links between departments to achieve the strategies, plans and priorities of the business.


On offer, together with a greenfield career opportunity, we have a strong and competitive benefits package in addition to the base salary.


This includes:

  • Car Allowance
  • 20% Bonus potential
  • 28 days holiday + Bank Holidays
  • Pension Scheme
  • Healthcare
  • Share options
  • Group Discounts
  • Other flexible benefits


Far more than a retailer, Pets at Home Group is the UK’s leading pet care specialist, fulfilling every possible pet and owner need, from food and accessories to grooming and vet services. Since 1991, we’ve been building a business around pets and their owners and we’ve set our sights on becoming the best pet care business in the world. Join us now and you can be part of that journey, developing your future as we develop ours. This is a place where you can take pride and passion in your work within an inspiring, professional team that’s focused on supporting pets and their owners to live happier lives together.
