£64,884 - £70,903

Transport for the South East is the sub-national transport body (STB) for the South East of England. Our partnership brings together 16 local transport authorities, five local enterprise partnerships, 46 district and borough authorities and a wider range of stakeholders from the worlds of transport, business and the environment. Together, we’re dedicated to creating an integrated and sustainable transport system that makes the South East more productive and competitive, improves the quality of life for all our residents, delivers carbon emission reductions and protects and enhances our unique natural and built environment.

Our thirty-year strategy sets out how investment in better, more sustainable transport can help grow our region’s economy, create new jobs, increase opportunity and quality of life, and hit net-zero carbon emissions. We are in the process of producing our strategic investment plan (SIP); a 30 year blueprint for investment in large scale transport infrastructure in the South East. This will empower the South East to clearly communicate to Government its investment priorities and will formalise the relationship with delivery bodies, including Network Rail and National Highways, so that TfSE can inform their investment programmes based on the requirements of communities, passengers, businesses and decision-makers across the region.

We are recruiting a number of key roles to help us on the next stage of the journey and to support the implementation of our SIP.

The Head of Analysis and Appraisal is part of our senior management team, setting the direction for the organisation and overseeing delivery of an ambitious work programme. This is an exciting new role within the TfSE team and will be responsible for establishing and leading our new analysis and data team and therefore the post holder is expected to have experience of managing and leading teams.

You will be expected to lead the development of an area wide analytical framework for the South East and will oversee our work on data analysis, modelling and the appraisal of large-scale transport interventions, which is essential to provide the evidence needed to support the case for transport infrastructure investment in the region. For the role of Head of Analysis and Appraisal, you will require knowledge and experience in the field of data analysis, transport modelling and appraisal.

To be successful in this role, you will need to be able to translate the outputs of data and modelling analysis and act as the liaison with the Department for Transport (DfT), other STBs and local transport authorities on all analytical issues. You must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills to liaise with a range of national, regional and local stakeholders.

If you believe you have what it takes and want to be part of shaping this organisation, we want to hear from you.
