The West of England is one of the UK’s most vibrant regions, with high employment, successful businesses, excellent schools and colleges, and four world-class universities. Over the last decade, our economic contribution has outperformed the national average, and we are committed to making it even better through clean and sustainable growth.
Our transport network is at the heart of this and the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) is responsible for setting the region’s transport strategies and policies; leading and delivering major transport schemes across the region; and co-ordinating the transport input of the region’s three constituent council’s – Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Project Manager to join the team to support the Future Transport Zone programme and deliver new and emerging transport modes into operational trials, such as e-scooters, demand responsive buses, e-cargo bikes and other urban freight solutions.
Based in Bristol and working to the FTZ Programme Manager, you will assist the Future Transport Zone programme to deliver its objectives working closely with the Mobility-as-a-Service project and Mobility Hubs project.
You’ll have an enthusiasm and passion for making a difference in our region; a demonstrable interest in the future of transport; and experience defining and developing innovative transport services.
*We anticipate that as the FTZ Programme gains momentum the size and scope, technical complexity and pressures of the Project Managers within may increase.
Therefore, through review of PDR and performance in accompaniment with post holder experience, we would support progression through to Grade 11.
