Great British Railways Transition Team (GBRTT) is working to create a simpler and better railway for everyone in the country. This includes working in close collaboration with the private sector to help innovate and drive improvements right across the railway.
But what needs to be true of rail’s new guiding mind to create the right environment for the private sector to deliver great value and innovation?
What should procurement look like at Great British Railways (GBR)?
As it works to answer these questions, the GBRTT is looking for senior leaders working in the rail and non-rail supply chain to join a new Commercial Partnership Sounding Board.
The creation of thisSounding Board builds on conversations between GBRTT and the supply chain throughout 2022 about the role of the private sector. It will be a forum for businesses to input into the ongoing GBR design process.
To express your interest in joining the Board, please read the below criteria and complete the online form by 5pm on Friday 27 January 2023.
· GBRTT welcomes expressions of interest from senior individuals with significant commercial or delivery experiences at organisations of all sizes, particularly SMEs.
· Members should have control over their business / business stream or sit on their organisation’s executive team, and must be able to commit to attending three sessions, over the next six months.
· The first session will take place in-person on 9 February 2023, 11.30-1.30pm in London.
- As an inclusive organisation, we welcome all backgrounds and would encourage members from groups currently underrepresented in the rail industry to consider expressing their interest, including women, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities and people from the LGBT+ community.
Ten places are available, limited to one representative from each organisation, and membership of the Sounding Board will rotate broadly on a six-monthly basis. The selection process will be run independent of GBRTT, with the only control being to ensure representation from a range of organisation sizes.
