Chief Executive Officer

The Office of Rail and Road (ORR) protects the interests of current and future rail and road users, in the public interest, by overseeing the safety, value and performance of Britain’s railway and monitoring the performance and efficiency of England’s strategic road network.

We’re a balancing mechanism at the heart of the rail industry; providing assurance and oversight, tempering the monopoly power of Network Rail, determining fair charges and access for passenger and freight operators, and looking out for the long-term national interest in an environment where, given the state backed nature of rail and road industries, there is inevitably a strong political dimension.

Becoming leader of the ORR is a chance to take on this stimulating work of national importance, especially at this time of reform of the railway.  The CEO will be an inspirational, dynamic leader providing careful strategic direction.  You’ll not only lead delivery of our board’s objectives but represent us publicly and bring far-reaching change to our corporate culture.

ORR is a highly respected and credible regulator as well as a place where people feel included and empowered to deliver exceptional work.  As CEO you will ensure this important record is maintained and enhanced.
