Planning and Carbon Manager 

Rail Delivery Group, Central London - Competitive Salary & Benefits

About RDG

The Rail Delivery Group brings together all passenger and freight operators with the infrastructure providers Network Rail and HS2, providing services and support to enable them to succeed by delivering better services for customers.

The railway has changed beyond recognition since a new model for running it was introduced in the 1990s.  A partnership between the public and private sectors has delivered growth and innovation - increased revenue for the taxpayer, better journeys for customers and more services that support local economies.  But despite investment and improvement over the last 25 years, it is clear that the system must once again be reformed to deliver more.  Change must make the railway fit for future generations and a post-COVID world, delivering the best deal for our customers, reducing the industry’s environmental footprint, holding the industry to account and creating a railway that communities and businesses across Britain can rely on to thrive in the future.

Central to delivering this is developing a credible whole-industry, long-term strategy to enable Ministers to make better policy, funding and investment decisions.  A key recommendation from the emerging Williams review, this will provide clarity and certainty to the industry, including the private sector (train operators and supply chain), regional and national funders and stakeholders on the long-term direction of the rail sector

What we are looking for

This is a fantastic time to join RDG, at a pivotal moment for the industry.  We are seeking a Planning and Carbon Manager to support the long-term planning activities of the industry including decarbonising the railway and using technology to deliver a better railway: one that’s data driven, easier to use, more reliable, more efficient and better for the environment.

We are looking for an organised self-starter with excellent written and oral communication skills.  The role will involve working closely with rail industry and government partners, so the ideal candidate will use their outstanding stakeholder management skills to develop strong working relationships with a diverse range of organisations. 

Key responsibilities for this role will include:

  • Supporting the development of long-term industry plans, including by helping to run RDG’s cross industry committee – the Planning Oversight Group - that focuses on strategic planning issues;
  • Representing train operators in the development of Network Rail route infrastructure investment plans;
  • Acting as RDG’s focal point on carbon issues and ensuring these form part of a coherent programme to decarbonise the railway and promote rail’s green credentials; and
  • Supporting the industry’s technology committee – the Technical Leadership Group – including by organising its meetings and events and ensuring progress is made in the development and delivery of the Rail Technical Strategy.

A CV will not be required at this stage – therefore if you believe you have the qualities we are seeking, you should submit a short summary of your key skills and experience (using the template below), detailing why you feel you would be a great fit for this role.
