The Greater Cambridge Partnership
Director of Transport – circa £110,000
The Greater Cambridge Partnership is working to grow and share prosperity and quality of life in the Cambridge city sub-region through multi-million pound improvements in vital infrastructure.
This is one of the biggest City Deal growth agreements in the UK with a potential spending envelope of up to £1bn to drive major infrastructure improvements and achieve significant modal shift in one of the most successful and fastest developing parts of the country.
A transport blueprint is in place and now needs an experienced transport professional to develop and deliver against this strategy to help our flourishing region to grow and to address the existing and future demand management challenges.
The role is not just about transport but will deliver high quality connectivity between work and where people live, supporting our ambition to deliver 33,500 new homes and 44,000 new jobs. This is about you too. This is a real opportunity to develop your strategic and professional profile in supporting our cross-sectoral leaders and high level Board in a lucrative and important knowledge base in the UK.
You will manage a professional, focused and matrix team and bring a commercial “can-do” approach to identifying, assessing and commissioning our strategic programmes and projects. You will be central to building an integrated and evidence-based approach to our strategic plans and their delivery. You will be used to leading through influence and working at pace, used to working with a complex mix of senior stakeholders in a public sector context to ensure there is full regional engagement and buy-in.
This is an exciting time to join the Greater Cambridge Partnership and make a difference by creating opportunities for people, businesses and the environment across our city region and beyond.
