DfT: Are you ready to champion the interests of transport users?
Category: Career opportunity, passenger, department of transport, independent, consumer, transport focus
Transport Focus is the independent, statutory, consumer watchdog for Britain’s rail passengers, bus, coach and tram passengers in England (outside London) and all users of England’s motorways and major ‘A’ roads – the Strategic Road Network.
Our mission is to make a difference for all transport users. We are firmly evidence based and focussed on making a real impact.
The Department for Transport is seeking to appoint members to our board with a strong track record in consumer issues. You will be a committed consumer advocate who understands in particular the importance of access, choice, information and redress in consumer markets. You’ll also know how the media – in particular social and digital media – has a key role to play in building a better future for Britain’s transport users. You will work within a strategically focused non-executive board environment and alongside a dynamic, achieving, permanent staff team, helping to drive real change for passengers and road users.
Jeff Halliwell, Chair, Transport Focus said:
“We all use and depend on transport. The economy relies on it. We all need transport to be as reliable as possible. If disrupted we need information to put us back in control.
“Board members of the future will need to bring with them the skills and enthusiasm to deal with these and many other issues like them, ensuring that Transport Focus continues to maximise its influence and impact. Passengers and road users expect nothing less. It is hoped that you find the process of application fair and reasonable and thank you for your interest in Transport Focus”.
