My client is building its Strategic Asset Investment Planning capability. You will lead a relatively new team which is designing and introducing policies, processes and systems to create a consistent strategic investment planning capability for investing in the Strategic Road Network. You will stimulate new and innovative thinking to deliver tangible process improvements that enhance the legitimacy of our Strategic Business Plan for 2020-25 with our key stakeholders. You will also act an advocate for change, supporting the team and wider organisation in consolidating new ways of working into our day-to-day strategic investment planning capability.


This is an exciting and unique opportunity to build strong foundations for strategic investment planning, in only their second road period as a regulated infrastructure provider. You will want to strive to move us to the forefront of the international roads sector for strategic asset management, by ensuring we appropriately balance risk, costs, customers' expectations with stakeholder priorities and stretch our thinking beyond our current capability.


Ideally you will be an experienced strategic asset investment leader looking to apply your skills in a new dynamic; willing to think creatively and bring value to a sector that has much opportunity to offer and with an appetite for success. You will be responsible for leadership and development of your team to deliver activities which set the overall investment strategy and direction. You will probably come from an infrastructure organisation or have experience of working with regulated infrastructure providers and have worked on multi-year investment plans/ investment period settlements.

This role will be the Subject Matter Lead for 5-year strategic investment planning, driving the implementation and being responsible for the creation of the asset renewals case for my client; securing input to the case from across the business and acceptance through regulatory scrutiny by the Office for Rail and Road (ORR). You will manage the Strategic Asset Investment Plan £6M programme of activity to secure renewals funding for Road Period 3 in the order of £6-9Bn, and ensure appropriate expenditure control, risk management and delivery of output.
