There will also be opportunity to work on other transport focussed projects in the team.

• People management and development, for example by acting as a Performance Manager for more junior staff.
• Engagement management.

The Person

• Qualified accountant (or highly financially literate).
• Significant experience in a finance role in either professional practice focussing on the transport industry or in a public or private sector transport business.
• Examples of experience required includes one or more of UK rail, UK bus, or UK rail infrastructure.

Understanding of key risks facing transport operators, and how to mitigate them.
• Other desirable experience would include working within UK rail supply chain, rolling stock manufacturers, ROSCOs or international transport.
• Experience of rail franchise bidding highly desirable, but not mandatory for exceptional candidates.
• Proven ability to motivate people and work in a team.
• Proven track record of being able to act on own initiative and be able to develop innovative solutions.
• Experience of working as an external advisor in a consultancy capacity desirable, particularly in multi-disciplinary teams including specialists such as modellers and technical advisors.
• Experience and knowledge of the risk and engagement management processes within regulated professional services firms.
