This is a pivotal and exciting time for our Passenger Transport service, with a dedicated and experienced team to help deliver a significant service transformation.

We are looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic individual that wants an opportunity to shape the delivery of home to school transport, bus and Park & Ride services to ensure that our residents and visitors can travel across the county in the most sustainable way. The key role of the Head of Passenger Transport is to provide strategic leadership and direction for the Passenger Transport Unit. This will require working collaboratively with different stakeholders including planning and highways authorities, residents, councillors, developers and transport providers, leading and influencing policy, strategy development and performance management for the delivery of cost effective and efficient passenger transport services for the people of Suffolk.

The successful candidate will be expected to have a track record of applying high level and comprehensive knowledge of legislation, guidance, national policy frameworks and current developments in passenger transport to lead and direct ambitious and compelling strategic business  plans as well as significant experience and demonstrable evidence of producing accurate and reliable budget forecasts to support a financially sustainable, high quality service delivering objectives within tight timescales.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but on occasions there may be a requirement for you to travel using reasonable and suitable means available to you and agreed by the authority.
