Rail Programme Manager

The West of England has ambitious plans for rail infrastructure and future rail service provision. We have a fantastic opportunity for a Rail Programme Manager to join our Capital Delivery Team to make those ambitions a reality.


Working to the Head of Capital Delivery, within a growing team of Programme and Project Managers, you will be responsible for the West of England Rail Programme from a West of England Combined Authority (WECA) perspective; managing from project inception to commissioning.   Some projects will be promoted by WECA, others by partners.  You will have oversight of both to ensure we co-ordinate and collaborate effectively across the region, delivering to time, cost and quality. 


You will have significant experience of delivery in the rail sector, through programme and project management. You will have been collaborating effectively with partners including, for example: Network Rail, Rail Operators and Unitary Authorities and other Statutory Authorities, to ensure projects are delivered effectively.  You will have experience of working in multi-disciplinary teams, and have the ability to present complex engineering schemes clearly and concisely to a range of stakeholders.  You will have an understanding of the engineering, commercial and organisational challenges when delivering in the rail sector.


If this sounds like you, please get in touch. For an informal conversation, please contact Kathryn Vowles, Head of Capital Delivery, on 07976 169873. No agencies.
