Steve Rotheram, the Liverpool City Region’s Metro Mayor was re-elected in May 2021 with a promise to deliver a London-style integrated public transport system for the people of our city region. Buses will play a vital role in the delivery of this objective, so now it’s time for us to ‘unleash the bus’, and we need your help to do it
8 out of 10 public transport journeys in our region are made on buses and we must ensure that the customer experience is world class. Working towards that goal means the Bus Team within the Combined Authority needs to grow so that we have the right capacity and skills to deliver at pace.
This is a great opportunity for people with the right skills, expertise and attitude to join an organisation that is making a difference and delivering transformational change on behalf of the 1.6 million people that live, work and spend their leisure time in the Liverpool City Region .
The Bus Reform Project is examining how we can use the opportunity of devolution to further improve bus services for customers. The project has moved into a new and exciting phase where we will be working to finalise our assessment of franchising and enhanced partnership options so that we can deliver the bus system our City Region needs.
The Lead Officer will be expected to drive the delivery of this project with the help of a support officer, working closely with a dedicated project manager and the wider Bus Team to deliver on this high profile organisational priority.
These roles are for an initial fixed 12-month period, with the potential for a further 6-month extension. Secondments and remote working opportunities would be welcomed.
We are currently working on a series of measures to improve bus journeys between Liverpool, Knowsley and St Helens, with other areas soon to follow.
A project of this scale needs plenty of skills and expertise to ensure that we deliver improvements to benefit bus users, and to attract people out of their cars. Key attributes we are looking for include programme management, subject matter expertise on bus priority, understanding customer requirements and stakeholder engagement, all underpinned by a relentless focus on delivery.
