About Govia Thameslink Railway

GTR is a strategic grouping for four of the busiest rail companies in the country - Thameslink, Southern, Gatwick Express and Great Northern. We have more trains running to and through the core of London than ever in the history of the capital.

Along with the rest of the rail industry, measuring how well we perform is changing. From April this year, all train services across the country will be judged against how often they arrive and leave bang on time.

The Senior Communications Project Manager, will work solely on the communications needs for establishing the new performance measure across the organisation so everyone understands the new requirement and works obsessively towards a service that runs on time.

The purpose of the role is to elicit the level of engagement and behaviour change needed from employees to deliver business and culture change. The role will embody the need to move from ‘business as usual’ to brilliant. As such, we’re looking for someone who is a game-changer.

The post-holder will run all related internal communications activity and some external (when appropriate) which will take in everything from developing and delivering creative campaigns; organising driver surgeries and the required comms collateral for them; and collating feedback to help shape and develop a highly creative, long-term communications campaign for the programme.

We’re looking for someone who can work strategically, creatively, innovatively and tactically. We are looking for someone who is keen to roll up their sleeves with high-impact, creative communications to help us on our journey to a safer, bigger, better rail service.
