You could learn new business improvement techniques, support the Risk Manager in setting up their risk management arrangements or assist to model different risk-based scenarios, engage with stakeholders, set up governance arrangements and contribute to the writing of a business case.
You could find yourself supporting a Communications Manager to build their communications strategy for important changes to the business to flow from the senior leaders to operational workers and all the people in between.
No two days will be the same. You will support, coach and advise people on ways to improve the way they do things, learning continuous improvement tools, techniques and behaviours as used by many manufacturing companies like Toyota and Nissan etc.. You will be responsible for making things quicker, easier, safer and cheaper.
