Systems Engineering Manager

Hours: 37 hours
Contract: Permanent
Salary: £52,891 - £55,883
Location: Sheffield (Hybrid Working or Onsite)

The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) brings together the local authorities of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield and to serve the communities and businesses of South Yorkshire. From transport to housing, from business growth to skills, the MCA has a great story to tell. We have ambitions to deliver recovery and renewal for people, businesses and places across South Yorkshire.

Good public transport is key to unlocking South Yorkshire’s potential. The South Yorkshire Supertram system is the region’s fast, frequent, zero-carbon mass transit system allowing people to access jobs, homes, education, leisure and retail destinations. The system comprises 32 vehicles, 29km of twin track with electrified overhead line equipment, 50 tram stops, 12 substation and various other civils, signalling and communications assets. The network also contains the UK’s first tram-train service which sees light rail vehicles travel over both light and heavy rail infrastructure (owned by Network Rail) between Sheffield city centre and the neighbouring town of Rotherham. The system is owned and managed by SYMCA, with operations and maintenance recently transferring to South Yorkshire Future Trams Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of SYMCA) following the end of Stagecoach’s 27-year contract.

SYMCA is embarking on a wide-ranging improvement programme to modernise the Supertram system and improve the service for our passengers. Significant investment across all aspects of the system is planned over the coming years. This includes complete renewal of all Supertram systems including SCADA, tram management and control (including signalling, radio, communications systems), and customer facilities (including CCTV, PA and help points). We are also exploring options for extending the tram network in line with our Mayor’s transport vision.

We are strengthening our teams to be ready for the challenges of delivering this scale of improvement and investment. We have opportunities for people looking to make a positive impact on their career and the future of transport in South Yorkshire.

Please note that SYMCA follows a structured salary grading system for all roles, and the offered salary for each post will be at the starting point within the specified grade. We value the skills and experience of potential candidates, and there will be opportunities for salary enhancements as you grow within South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority.

Key Responsibilities

As the Systems Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring that the Supertram systems assets are safe and complaint with all legislation and best industry practice, ensuring SYMCA’s responsibilities and duties as asset owner are appropriately managed and discharged. You will own the strategic asset management plan for systems assets to provide SYMCA with visibility of asset condition, risks and future investment needs.

A key part of the job will be to work collaboratively with the operator to understand emerging issues and provide proportionate assurance over their maintenance activities to satisfy SYMCA that effective maintenance is being undertaken in line with the Operating Agreement, agreed maintenance plans, and key performance indicators.

You will provide technical expertise on all matters relating to Supertram systems, providing technical assurance of asset changes delivered by the Operator or SYMCA’s Project Teams, acting as sponsor for such changes to the assets. This will include activities including complete renewal of all Supertram systems including SCADA, tram management and control (including signalling, radio, communications systems), and customer facilities (including CCTV, PA and help points), and any developments from proposals for extensions.
