The programme of works delivered by the teams is valued at £2bn and manages the development, design and delivery of Switches and Crossings and Plain Line renewals as its core business but is also responsible for the delivery of major enhancement projects.

The Role:

The Engineering Manager is a senior member of the Project delivery team and the Engineering function and is accountable for the overall engineering leadership and management across the enhancement portfolio in either the LNW or LNE region, including the management of technical risk.

The role is to ensure technical excellence, assurance and performance across the given region and is critical in ensuring that the technical design and delivery of the region is achievable and will deliver a successful outcome for the client and the Alliance.

This includes the integration and co-ordination of the technical design and delivery by the internal and external supply chain.

  • Commitment to continuous improvement in own and team performance.
  • Promoting and embracing appropriate innovations and technology to achieve a world class project.
  • Ability to balance technical quality and delivery to timescales. Understanding when exacting detail and review is required and where 'good enough' principals actually reduce overall project delivery risk.
  • Over all of the above an ability to ensure safe-by-design is at the core of the design and delivery process.
