Are you good at building relationships and partnership working? Interested in supporting local communities and wanting to make a difference? Concerned about the environment and wanting to encourage public transport and other sustainable modes? 

If your answer is ‘yes’, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council is the place for you. We have an exciting role for a Senior Officer (Community Rail) to join our Transport Strategy Team to provide a leading role in community rail activity across the borough. Community rail is a growing grassroots movement made up of community rail partnerships and groups across Britain. They engage communities and help people get the most from their railways, promoting social inclusion and sustainable travel, working alongside train operators to bring about improvements, and bringing  stations back to life.

Projects are wide ranging with unique challenges and opportunities. You will work closely with Friends of Station groups, senior officers, Councillors, community groups, residents, businesses and other key stakeholders to support the work of a local community rail partnership. The role offers the opportunity to be part of economic and social improvements and to support sustainability and health in our communities.

A professional approach, and the aptitude to work on your own initiative 
Desire to work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams
