Project Manager HS2 and Strategic Rail
Location: County Hall, Matlock
Salary details: Grade 14, £47,181 - £52,640 per annum
Job term: Full Time
Closing Date: 31 January 2021
The HS2 rail project, will have a profound impact on the economy of Derbyshire for many years to come with phase 2B including proposals for a new high speed hub station at Toton, stops at Chesterfield station and an Infrastructure Maintenance Depot at Staveley. At the same time there are a number of other strategic rail scheme proposals which will also have a direct impact on Derbyshire including the Northern Powerhouse Rail and Midlands Engine Rail projects. These schemes form an important part of Derbyshire County Council’s wider ‘good growth strategy’ and are fundamental to the economic growth zones in the north-east and south of the county.
To ensure that Derbyshire gets the best possible outcomes from these projects the County Council is now looking to recruit a dedicated project manager to lead and coordinate our response to HS2 and the other strategic rail projects in our area.
This is a wide ranging role which will include working with a variety of different internal and external stakeholders and acting as the main point of contact between the Council, HS2 Ltd and the promoters of the other strategic rail projects. Specific responsibilities will include leading and coordinating the Councils efforts associated with any Parliamentary petitioning process and developing appropriate mitigation proposals. Excellent communication and organisational skills are therefore essential, along with a ‘can do’ attitude.
