About the role
Commissioners have a unique opportunity to look at the UK’s long-term infrastructure needs, make recommendations to the government and influence the government’s infrastructure priorities across multiple sectors, making links and shaping future infrastructure networks.

The ability to consider the long-term development of the UK’s infrastructure landscape and understand the government’s infrastructure objectives within the wider policy, delivery and finance contexts will be essential and a comprehensive understanding of the transport sector and its infrastructure, at a national and regional level will be considered essential. With a track record of communicating and influencing at senior levels you will support the NIC addressing the UK’s long term transportation infrastructure needs.
