About the role

The Head of Network Transformation is an exciting new role which will support some of the major business developments required to help inform the future shape and operating models across the regional transport network.

This is a progressive role that will lead the way in developing innovative new thinking around how we can harness opportunities for the public transport network through developments such as 5G technology. The post holder will also play a key role in supporting the emerging strategic view of how best to expand and develop our Park and Ride network.
