LEAD TRANSPORT AND ENGINEERING ADVISOR- INTEGRATED TRANSPORT FUNCTION
Location (flexible) Based across East Sussex, West Sussex and Surrey
TWO YEAR FIXED TERM CONTRACT
37 Hours Per Week
This is an exciting opportunity to play a significant role in designing a unified Fleet, Engineering and Logistics function across multiple public service providers including: East Sussex, West Sussex and Surrey Fire and Rescue Services as well as Sussex and Surrey Police and potentially other partners. These Partners are actively involved in a wide range of collaborative projects, which the ITF Programme is integral to.
A senior level specialist in strategic transformation with a background in Fleet/Transport, you will be a trusted advisor to chief officers and strategic leads across the services, as they plan and manage the delivery of a new joint function. You will take the lead in defining and supporting a range of options within a business case to deliver a single organisational structure - as well as designing the transformation/change process. Affecting organisational structures and business practices, the goal is to create a unified service that fully meets Partners operational requirements while achieving efficiency savings. Taking on this pivotal role, you will not only be able to influence important changes, but also to shape your own role and impact.
This challenging position would suit a confident, motivated and highly credible professional with a proven record of accomplishment in strategic management and cross-organisational business transformation. An adept communicator and negotiator, you’ll be familiar with working in large organisations at a senior level. Significant experience of organisational change is of course, essential – as is your ability to interpret, challenge and provide professional advice on technical information. Due to the collaborative context of the programme, you’ll be exposed to finding solutions to complex problems, including cross-organisational budgetary and people issues, and it is vital that you’re comfortable with matrix management.
The post holder will have responsibility across multiple services and will be expected to divide their time across the Sussex and Surrey region.
