West Midlands Rail, representing local authorities in the region, will be leading franchise management of the new West Midlands franchise in partnership with the Department for Transport (DfT) as a first step in getting much greater local influence over rail services.
As an important contributor in delivering our challenging agenda, we have an exciting opportunity for a Business Unit Manager who will be responsible for managing the Franchise Agreement on behalf of the DfT and West Midlands Rail (WMR) for the West Midlands Business Unit of the West Midlands Franchise.
The role requires an individual who will create a working environment where the operator is motivated to deliver the required outcomes, holding them to account where this does not happen. They will be key in the establishment and development of a credible and successful collaboration between DfT and WMR.
The successful applicant will influence, develop and motivate the passenger rail franchise operator to deliver the outcomes contracted through the Franchise Agreement, create a working environment where the committed obligations of the franchise operator are delivered on time and are in line with agreed commercial terms within the franchise agreement.
