he role requires extensive experience of project management, procurement and commissioning of projects. The ability to adapt to this fast paced, rapidly evolving programme involving innovation and emerging technology, is also essential.

Prior knowledge of ‘Smart Cities’ theory and application is desirable but not essential.

They will be a self-starter who can drive forward complex, multi-faceted projects to ensure their successful delivery.
