As a Director of Strategic Business Planning, your main responsibilities would be:

  • Develop a proposed performance scorecard for control Period 7 that will provide meaningful stretch for the railway as a whole and which will drive a culture of continuous improvement.
  • Develop options that will maximise the revenue opportunities for passenger and freight revenues.
  • Commission associated asset resilience and improvement plans from the engineering and asset management community, with volume and efficiency targets, that will incentivise the driving down of the unit costs of delivery and that take account of enhancement plans.
  • Develop optional proposals that set out how additional investment in the railway would support the Scottish Government’s net zero emissions ambitions through asset sustainability improvement plans.
  • Produce associated operations and maintenance delivery plans that deliver a safe level of asset resilience and are delivered in the most efficient manner possible.
  • Identify proposals within the strategic business plan that will remove perverse incentives and disincentives that drive single organisational motivation and protection of financial interests.
  • Identify proposals to deepen the organisational integration between Network Rail and ScotRail and how a more holistic approach to procurement can drive down costs to the railway overall.
