The successful candidate will possess extensive experience of managing engagement and communications strategies, as well as providing compelling counsel to senior leaders. You will have a proven track record in establishing effective working relationships with stakeholders and building contacts and networks and will have a proven ability to negotiate and influence others at all levels.

Given the scale of opportunity Northern Powerhouse Rail represents, you will be equally comfortable with bringing the programme to life by managing proactive communication campaigns, as you will be engaging with a complex landscape of civic and business stakeholders.
You will have outstanding verbal and written skills with the ability to produce reports and presentations using raw data when required is essential, as is the ability to translate complex issues into appropriate formats for target audiences.

You must be educated to degree level or equivalent in a relevant subject, with previous experience within a political environment and will have experience of managing and leading specialist consultants.

Role Purpose:
You will be expected to provide leadership to a team of professionals in an area
of specialism, or to act as a subject matter expert, providing specialist advice to
internal/external stakeholders and partners.
Lead the development and delivery of Stakeholder Engagement, Media
