Project Manager - Agile
British Transport Police (BTP) provides a vital policing service to Britain’s railways, the rail operators, their staff and passengers across the country. We are a specialist force, highly responsive to railway issues alongside our policing mission to keep the public safe and protect vulnerable people. Our vision is to work with the rail industry to deliver a safe, secure, reliable and expanding transport system. To achieve that we have developed a new operating model that will see us transform our services and how we deliver them. This is the most significant transformation we have undertaken and we need your help.
There were 62 million passengers journeys across the UK last year and this is set to rise substantially. As the UK's national railway police, we employ more than 5,000 people across the country who keep people safe and the rail network moving. Our transformation will change how we operate, establish new ways of engaging with rail users and those who work on the network, and digitise our services – all while equipping our officers with modern technology. At the same time, we will build our capability to exploit data, become more insight driven and deliver better value for money.
