Demand for Britain’s railways has doubled over the past 20 years and that growth is set to continue. To keep up with the increasing dependence on the rail network, we’ve got a major plan to upgrade the Transpennine Route between York and Manchester through Leeds and Huddersfield over the next five years by introducing more trains, more seats and making journeys quicker. The programme will help deliver a railway that will enable growth and prosperity for communities and economies across the Pennines, as well as create a railway upon which passengers and businesses across the north can depend.

We’re looking for a customer-focussed Senior Sponsor to lead the development of this major enhancement project with enthusiasm and dedication. Scrutiny of tax-payer funded rail schemes is quite rightly high, so it’s critical that projects are delivered within scope, cost and time. This is a fantastic opportunity to bring your commercial intuition to one of Network Rail’s most ambitious projects.

It’s critical you create solutions that maintain the “business as usual” accessibility for our customers. That’s why excelling every day is a must. So you’ll use your commercial intuition and persuasive nature to lead the team. As well as this, you’ll use your influencing skills to lead negotiations and achieve results that optimise client requirements, value for money and capacity for future development.

With your excellent communication skills, you’ll be able to articulate complex business problems into manageable information. It’s an essential skill as you’ll deal with people at all levels and need to build effective relationships. In fact, you’ll lead a successful team that’ll help you develop one of Network Rail’s most ambitious projects.
