We keep London moving, working and growing and drive to make life in our city better. Our public transport and infrastructure plays a role in opening up opportunities, provides access to education and employment and connects people’s lives. We’re about more than just transport. We have ambitious plans for regeneration.
You will help Transport for London transform our Capital and provide stewardship to one of the largest capital infrastructure programmes in Europe - £30bn. The programme is based around the key priorities described in the Draft Mayor’s Transport Strategy (published in June 2017).
Our capital programme is delivering the infrastructure that London needs, from easing congestion with the Silvertown tunnel river crossing, through to increasing capacity on our New Tube for London Programme and the extension of the Northern Line, all worth billions.
As a member of IIPAG you will provide powerful and far-reaching advocacy on hundreds of high value projects, in excess of £50m. You’ll constructively challenge and provide strategic input on a broader range of matters affecting our programmes, including external market forces.
As the IIPAG chair, you’ll develop the Group following the detailed review last year, including recruiting new members in the summer. The IIPAG Review Report and the new Terms of Reference are posted here:
With the new Group, you’ll help us drive a forward-looking agenda to maximise efficiency, effectiveness and value for money of our major Investment Programmes. You’ll help London to thrive for years to come.
You’ll manage and provide leadership to IIPAG and act as the direct liaison between the Mayor, TfL Board and Executives. We are seeking an exceptional individual with relevant experience to influence, shape and guide the strategy of our investment programme. Alongside overseeing our largest projects, you’ll provide insight and advice on the key strategic issues across the investment Programme. To succeed, you will need a track record of strategic leadership at board level in a high-profile business, with experience of developing and delivering complex transport or infrastructure across the mega projects sphere.
You will need strong communication skills, with the ability to influence high-level stakeholders in government and business, and positively represent TfL with the media.
Please submit an up to date copy of your CV and a Cover Letter (no more than 500 words).
