Job Description:

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Mayoral Programme Delivery team is a group of project and programme professionals who lead on some of the most exciting and transformational projects and programmes in our City Region.

This team is about turning our organisation’s ideas and priorities into tangible projects and delivering them to make a positive difference for the 1.6m residents of the Liverpool City Region.

One of our corporate priorities is to make Liverpool City Region the most digitally connected in the UK, and to achieve this in a way that leaves no-one behind.  LCRCA has already embarked upon an innovative joint venture – LCR Connect – with the private sector, in which we are delivering a new gigabit-capable fibre network for the City Region.  But our ambitions don’t end there. The next phase of our work will develop and execute additional projects that maximise the amount of digital Infrastructure in the City Region and tackle digital exclusion.

This work will include:

  • collaborating with our Local Authorities and other stakeholders to develop and execute an LCR-wide approach to wireless infrastructure;
  • developing the “smart cities” use cases and associated business cases that will be enabled by next-gen wireless technologies and infrastructure;
  • engaging with industry to support the deployment of wireless infrastructure within our City Region and tackle barriers to delivery;
  • developing a roadmap for the City Region, and identifying and delivering initiatives / projects / proof of concepts that support its implementation;
  • supporting the next-gen wireless aspects of LCRCA policy development across multiple domains (e.g. Planning, Housing, Transport etc).

As a Next Generation Wireless Project Manager you will have responsibility for all aspects of the planning, management, co-ordination and financial control of the project(s) you are assigned, and you will be required to report progress to the relevant governance groups, tracking delivery on time, to budget and agreed quality standards.  You will possess knowledge on “smart cities” strategies and their delivery, and understand the role of local government in digital connectivity.

Candidates are advised that interviews are likely to take place between 10th – 12th May 2022
