Posted on behalf of Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM)
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is looking for senior business professionals who are passionate about transport in the region to join our Business Transport Advisory Council (BTAC). TfGM is the local government body responsible for co-ordinating transport services across Greater Manchester (GM).
GM is working towards an ambitious target for becoming carbon neutral by 2038, and transport plays a significant role in this. GM’s transport and travel priorities aim to provide an environmentally sustainable network which is accessible, affordable, and supports long-term economic growth.
We’ve already taken the lead by bringing buses back under local control, in the biggest change to public transport in the city-region in nearly 40 years. The Bee Network will deliver a joined-up, sustainable and inclusive transport system which will support safe, seamless and affordable end-to-end journeys across public transport and active travel.
Against this exciting backdrop of change, you’ll help us set the future direction. TfGM’s business engagement strategy seeks to strengthen our understanding of how businesses view the transport network, what businesses need to enable more colleagues and customers to use sustainable transport, and their priorities for public transport and active travel.
Our new Business Travel Advisory Council will enable a more informed approach to this, ensuring that we support the city region as we continue to tackle shared challenges and develop ambitions for GM’s transport network and infrastructure. It’s your chance to offer insight and share understanding of the thoughts and priorities of Greater Manchester’s business community. Your influence and knowledge will see that we address business transport needs.
This role requires decision-making business experience. You’ll bring clear insight into the GM region, and you are quick to understand issues and are able to contribute to strategy. Strong communication skills mean you can express your thoughts articulately and collaborate with others.
We are looking for a diverse group of business leaders from the region who reflect the diversity of GM’s people and the full range of business sectors, sizes and locations.
BTAC members will be required to meet in person once every quarter.
Would you like to join TfGM’s Business Transport Advisory Council? If you do, please complete our expression of interest form. We will assess all expressions of interest and confirm panel membership later this year.
Closing date 9am Monday 19 June.
