You will also be responsible for designing, implementing and maintaining the systems required for delivering the objectives of the team to support the client in achieving its vision.

This role offers an excellent opportunity for a candidate who has experience in project management, project and business case appraisal and / or project assurance of portfolios or large programmes.

Effective communication, risk and issue management skills and experience of partnership working are essential.

A good understanding and experience of working with the local government project assurance and appraisal processes will be beneficial, as well as some previous experience of transport scheme appraisal or transport scheme business case development would be beneficial.
