Infrastructure Manager, Places for Everyone
(Ref: SUS2770)
£31,028 per annum
37.5 hours per week – based in Edinburgh

This exciting role will have the responsibility of managing the delivery of the Places for Everyone challenge fund. Supported by Scottish Government, Places for Everyone is an annual challenge fund for the delivery of safe and attractive infrastructure that enables more walking, cycling and wheeling for everyday journeys. In this role you will manage the delivery of a wide range of projects and will work in partnership with an equally wide array of partners. Projects can range from rural paths, to urban crossings, to town wide strategy development and all require an open, fair and robust application process which this role will review and strengthen.

With substantial experience overseeing the planning, development and delivery of projects in the urban environment, including the co-ordination of  funding bids and budget management, you will have previously worked in partnership with other groups and organisations and have the ability to influence key decision makers, politicians and transport directors. To achieve this, your written and verbal communications skills will be excellent as will be your negotiation and advocacy skills. You will also have a good understanding of Scotland’s political and physical geography and be committed to the promotion of sustainable transport.
