Build the road to greater prosperity

Successful, growing businesses. More and better jobs. Both depend on high quality connectivity and infrastructure – and these will be your goals. As Major Transport Scheme Programme Lead, you will help us to make Kirklees an economically buoyant area, where local people and businesses are free to thrive and achieve. It’s an exciting but complex challenge that comes with fantastic flexible working options plus excellent rewards.

Taking charge of a £200m programme, you’ll help bring forward schemes with the power to bring prosperity to the Kirklees region. Driving progress, you’ll project manage key schemes, including those that are part of the West Yorkshire Transport Fund. You’ll also provide transportation support and expertise into projects from other areas of the Council and our partners. It’s therefore essential that you understand our strategic ambitions and have the credibility to represent the Council at both a regional and national level.

With many diverse stakeholders, this is a role that involves considerable political complexity. To influence where it counts, you need to be an expert on the inception, design, feasibility and delivery of major transport schemes. With this expertise, you’ll also be a role model for project managers, directing and supporting teams. A collaborative leader, you think strategically and creatively, prioritising resources.

To excel at this level, you’ll need extensive experience in a similar role. You should have delivered large scale transportation schemes before and managed substantial budgets. With this background, you’ll have solid technical expertise, plus programme management, communication, finance, stakeholder management and team leadership abilities. If you’ve got the talents we’re looking for, this could be an amazing way to cement your reputation and future career.

With new ways of working, flexible working arrangements and excellent IT facilities at Kirklees Council, your location need not be a barrier. To find out more or to apply:
