Summary

Working in our Economics, Markets and Strategy Directorate, you will manage a team of up to 4 people. A highly motivated candidate you will enjoy leading an experienced team and working on a variety of regulatory and policy issues during a period of industry change. You will be comfortable “speaking truth to power” - managing senior stakeholder relationships with industry and government to ensure regulatory compliance and improvement. You will be comfortable dealing with complex, and sometimes conflicting, evidence, and be able to communicate your decisions and recommendations in a clear and compelling way.

Through your leadership of the Passenger Track Access team you will develop our access and holding to account policy, ensuring a consistent approach across multiple network owners. You will work closely with operational, analyst and legal colleagues internally and across industry to consider how access decisions in your team will impact on industry, Government and ORR objectives.

As a high profile leadership role across industry and ORR, you will provide a strategic direction to a high performing team and quickly grasp the technical processes of the rail industry (Railways Act, Network Code and Access and Management Regulations). You will communicate clearly in writing and verbally to persuade a diverse range of stakeholders at a senior level. To be successful you will need to be comfortable assimilating technical, contractual and statutory information and linking this to the bigger strategic picture.
