What we do:
 We are an established delivery business within TfL that brings our major projects into one directorate, enabling us to deliver them more affordably, making sure we share knowledge, skills and expertise across our programmes to enable us to deliver more for less.

This is an opportunity to work as part of a team of 20+ risk professionals, right at the heart of the projects and programmes in TfL’s Capital Delivery Portfolio. You will be part of a central PMO from where you may be deployed across multiple assignments across multiple projects at different lifecycle phases whilst fully supported by a team of senior risk managers. Whilst our focus is on key risk management interventions, we are also constantly working to improve our processes, culture and presence within the business which involves working on priority improvement initiatives.


The role you’ll play
 You will be responsible for risk interventions, business as usual activities and embedding a culture of best practice risk management. As part of this you will undertake early stages risk estimates, facilitate risk workshops, ensure robust risk assessments are carried out, encourage effective mitigation strategies and ensure timely reports are produced at various levels across the business.
