Would you like to work for a growing award winning company based in Birmingham City Centre with the ability to work from home or remotely?

THE COMPANY
UKTram are the single voice for the Light Rail sector, bringing together all organisations with an interest in the future development of Light Rail in the United Kingdom, ensuring it remains a viable, cost effective mode of transportation.

THE POSITIONS
We’re currently recruiting for the following role:

UKTram Chairperson

PURPOSE

The principal role of the Chair of the Board is to manage and to provide leadership to the UKTram Board.

The Chairman is accountable to the Board and will act as a direct liaison between the Board and the management of the Company, through the Managing Director. The Chair acts as the communicator for Board decisions to the organisations membership. The Chair must have the ability to influence and represent the work of UKTram with senior stakeholders including the Minister, politicians, senior officials, and industry representatives and other regulators.

The concept of separation of the role of the Chair from that of the Managing Director implies that the Chair should be independent from management and free from any interest and any business or other relationship which could interfere with the Chair’s independent judgment other than interests resulting from Company shareholdings and remuneration.
