Job description


The Transport & Parking division is responsible for delivering some of London's most ambitious and exciting transport projects. As Transport Contracts & Performance Manager you will be responsible for developing and managing a number of key contracts arising from our EV and Kerbside Strategies, as well as monitoring broader programme delivery and performance outcomes across the division. You will be managing up to two officers, who will assist you in achieving these goals.

Initially, key contracts will include those falling under a new Transport Framework, as well as contracts for operation of EV Charging Points, e-bikes and car clubs. By building good relationships with project managers, suppliers and the Council's procurement team, contracts will be closely managed and monitored, ensuring that all parties are adhering to their obligations. Your contract management experience will enable you to offer robust advice to project managers and assist with the resolution of any issues, leading to continuous improvements in service delivery. This will enable you to take a key role in future contract reviews and tender processes.

You will also be responsible for reviewing and improving programme management processes and documentation for the division, ensuring adherence to effective governance and quality assurance. Alongside this, you will oversee the monitoring of performance and project outcomes, with high quality reporting enabling data led decision making. This role will require a solid understanding of business process and standards and the ability to influence a wide range of stakeholders and internal partners.
