South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority
The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) brings together the local authorities of
Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield and the private sector through the Local
Enterprise Partnership (LEP). These bodies together serve the communities and businesses of
South Yorkshire. From transport to housing, from business growth to skills, the SYMCA has a
great story to tell. We have ambitions to deliver recovery and renewal for people, businesses,
and places across South Yorkshire after the COVID pandemic.
We are seeking to appoint an Active Travel Project Director to lead the delivery of the MCA’s
ambitions towards active travel. You will work closely with colleagues across the UK regions,
supporting the Active Travel Commissioner in realising the regions ambitions in this area.
You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the teams’ wider portfolio of active travel
projects and support the delivery of our CRSTS programme. In addition the role will also
include support our partners to justify and appraise active travel schemes through business
case processes and designing high-quality and transformational infrastructure. A key part of
the role will be developing and supporting relationships with external clients, often working
as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
We are looking for a dynamic leader, with a track record of championing and advocating active
travel who is passionate about sustainable and inclusive travel for all.
You will build relationships easily with internal and external colleagues; allowing you to
effectively engage and influence key infrastructure and active travel stakeholders on the
delivery of projects and programmes. A skilled communicator, you will be able to adapt your
style to all levels, allowing you to relate effectively with external partners, including
communities, clients, and funders.
In return, we offer a competitive salary, hybrid working, access to a Local Government Pension
Scheme and the chance to be part of an organisation where you can really make a difference.
Located in a vibrant city centre location, we are well-placed for transport links and encourage
employees to take advantage of a range of benefits, including active travel facilities. We
believe in a healthy work/life balance.
