HS2 is a key priority for Camden Council due to the unprecedented and significant impacts on the Borough. As construction ramps up, we are moving into a new phase of work and it is imperative that our Camden 2025 vision is upheld in areas affected by HS2, despite the negative and counter-productive effects of construction.
We are looking for an experienced programme management professional who has sound programme and/or project management experience, experience of working across multiple partners and stakeholders, experience of uniting tangential projects under a common goal, an understanding of how to navigate and coordinate complicated governance structures and good analytical and influencing skills.
