Vacancy Description

An exceptional leader with the necessary skills and experience is being sought to lead the Board of this dynamic government-owned development and regeneration company focused on delivering significant social, economic and financial benefits from railway-related assets. With a proven track record in leading organisations through significant change, the Chair will play a pivotal role as LCR’s business evolves to meet future challenges.

Positioned on the cusp of the public-private sector, LCR has gained an enviable track record of working in partnership with the private sector and other public bodies to deliver large scale, world class regeneration projects enabled by rail infrastructure, most notably at King’s Cross and Stratford, and more recently at Mayfield in Manchester.

LCR is forging new relationships across the public and private sectors, and building on its considerable experience is now facilitating development at and around transport hubs and other government assets. Through this approach LCR aims to participate in a range of development and regeneration projects, and strategic partnerships, over the next few years. As such, it needs a world class Chair with excellent skills and experience to help support the Executive team in delivering an ambitious business plan.

Person Specification

LCR is seeking a Non-Executive Chair to join and lead the Board through the next exciting phase of LCR’s evolution.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Significant senior level experience gained within real estate, infrastructure or other relevant sectors, with experience of large scale development and regeneration projects being an advantage;
  • Demonstrable track record of having worked collaboratively across the public and private sectors in pursuit of strategic objectives;
  • Recent and relevant experience of best practice in corporate governance; and
  • Be a change leader with a proven track record of delivering through partnerships in other organisations in the private and public sectors.
