Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all. As a Principal Programme Manager responsible for developing and delivering schemes as part of the Holborn Liveable Neighbourhood, you will be responsible for helping deliver a priority set of interventions within the Camden Transport Strategy.
This is an exciting role helping us deliver the Holborn Liveable Neighbourhood Scheme. This scheme is a highly complex and ambitious set of initiatives that collectively aim to transform the streets in and around the Holborn area to create world-class, safe, healthy and green public spaces that enable pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. At the same time the programme will help support and develop a thriving local economy and major tourist attractions including the British Museum.
You will be responsible for the development and contributing to delivery of the full circa £40m Holborn Liveable Neighbourhood (LN) programme. You will be responsible for project managing some of the “quick-win” initiatives within the wider programme in this area from inception to completion, working closely with colleagues in the Design Team and the Safe & Healthy Streets Team Manager in doing so. And at the same time you will oversee the development of the longer term, transformational, over-arching Holborn LN scheme. You will be responsible for high quality programme and project management in order to ensure delivery of a rolling programme of schemes in the Holborn area on time and to budget.
You will be securing improvements for walking, cycling and bus priority in this part of the Borough. As well as working closely with colleagues across the Council to ensure that the Holborn Liveable Neighbourhood programme support and contribute to wider strategic initiatives, such as the renewal of our High Streets, improving air quality, urban greening and climate resilience, and the wider regeneration of this important part of the Borough.
In delivering the above responsibilities, you will lead and manage a variety of consultants and carry out multiple activities, in an innovative, dynamic and proactive way. You will be responsible for reporting to, and chairing, regular operational and strategic progress meetings with both internal and external stakeholders.
You will have a strong understanding and experience of the policy and statutory framework within which Healthy Streets, Liveable Neighbourhoods, transport planning and related activities operates. You will be able to demonstrate effective partnership working and the ability to develop strong stakeholder relations, including with elected Members.
To ensure success in this role, you will need to have a strong understanding and appreciate of issues specifically around streetscape design, accessibility and sustainability. You will need to be a strong, skilled and experienced project & programme manager.
You will need to collate and analyse (at a strategic and local level) a wide range of information and data necessary for Liveable Neighbourhoods/Healthy Streets scheme/project development in order to prepare high quality papers and reports.
You will provide succinct, professional and technical advice on a range of areas in line with the legislative framework, best practice and new technologies.
You will be able to demonstrate the ability to effectively manage a number of consultants and show leadership in your role – in particular showcasing an innovative, pro-active and enthusiastic approach to identifying opportunities and solving problems at pace.
